We respectfully ask our patients not to request appointments by email. This is because the receptionists email account is only checked once a day which may result in your request not being processed.
Monday - Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) between 8:00am and 8:30am the surgery offers an emergency only telephone line. Please dial the normal surgery number and await instructions.
Making an Appointment
When you contact the surgery to make an appointment it is possible the receptionist will ask you about your problem. This will help us to organise your appointment with you.
We aim to offer appointments with a doctor within two days, but those patients who wish to see a specific doctor may have to wait longer. It is also possible for patients who have routine or on-going conditions to book an appointment with a GP up to a month in advance.
Those patients with a more urgent condition will be offered an appointment the same day.
If you have more than one problem that you wish to discuss, please let the doctor know at the start of your appointment so that they can help you get the best out of your consultation. Please understand that if the doctor is unable to discuss everything with you during your 10 minute appointment they will ask you to arrange another appointment for the less urgent problem.
PLEASE NOTE: GPs DO NOT OFFER CERVICAL SMEARS - THESE APPOINTMENTS MUST BE ARRANGED WITH A NURSE VIA RECEPTION
If you are unable to keep your appointment please phone and cancel in good time so that we can offer it to someone else.
If you arrive late for your appointment, we are sorry, but we may have to ask you to re-arrange it for another time.
