Appointments to see your doctor can be made by calling at, or telephoning, the surgery where you are registered. Patients may telephone between 08:30 and 13:00, and 14:00 and 18:00, Monday to Friday. Consultation times are 08:30 – 12:30 and 15:00 – 17:30. Some appointment slots are also available outside of the core surgery opening hours; please telephone the surgery for further details. The surgery closes between 13:00 and 14:00 for administrative purposes and staff training.
Appointments may also be booked online via the above link.
An appointment is for one person only. If someone else in your family needs to be seen or discussed, more time will be needed and a separate appointment should be made.
Some of our nurses have had extended training and run Minor Illness Clinics, and in certain circumstances they are able to write prescriptions too. You may be invited to consult the nurse instead of a doctor if your case seems suitable.
Please note if you arrive late you may be asked to re-book .
There is a facility for you to leave a telephone message for your doctor. Please give brief details to the receptionist. Our staff have been asked not to disturb consultations with non-urgent telephone calls, as we are sure you will appreciate this can be upsetting for both patients and doctors.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. Un-cancelled missed appointments are routinely noted in your medical record.
