Please note that our  appointment system below has been suspended until further notice due to COVID 19 and all calls will now be dealt with by telephone triage in the first instance . Should a doctor wish to see you face to face they will give you an appointment time to attend the surgery, alternatively this could also be a video consultation.

We operate an appointment system with a range of appointment times spread across the week.

Same day appointments

These are reserved appointments for both urgent and routine problems which allow our patients to be seen on the day they phone for an appointment. You may not be able to be seen by the doctor of your choice and the choice of times will be limited. Phone as early as possible after 8am on the day to make the appointment.

Advance booked appointments –

These appointments can be booked up to a month in advance and will allow you to choose the doctor and the time you are seen, subject to availability.

Extended hour appointments

For working patients who cannot attend during normal surgery hours, we offer one doctor’s surgery per week from 5.30pm on either a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday Evening.  These appointments are bookable in advance.

Telephone advice

If you would like to speak to a doctor for advice contact the surgery. If a doctor is not immediately available you will be asked to phone back at a particular time or asked to leave your contact number for us to contact you.

Home visits

If you are unable to come to the surgery and you think that you need a doctor to visit you at home then please contact the surgery by 10am.
