The reception desk is open from 08:00 to 18:30 on weekdays only. Please telephone or call at the surgery during these hours.
For routine appointments we would appreciate as much notice as possible. They can be booked up to about 6 weeks in advance.
An appointment with a doctor may be taken from 08:10 to 11:00 each morning and between 14:00 and 18:00 each afternoon.
We also have a limited number of appointments available in the early evening. The evenings on which these are offered varies from week to week so please telephone or call at the surgery to check availability.
If you have more than one problem to discuss or you feel you are going to need more time than usual when you see the doctor or nurse - please ask for a longer appointment so that your consultation is not rushed.
If you would like to be seen in a downstairs consulting room please make this clear to reception at the time the appointment is made.
If you are unable to keep your appointment please let us know so that it can be offered to another patient.
If you wish to be seen urgently and you do not have an appointment, you may be asked to wait until a doctor is available, but you will be seen as soon as possible. We try to keep appointments between 18:00 and 18:30 on weekdays for urgent cases only.
If you would like a chaperone to be present during a physical examination, please let the doctor or nurse know. If you wish you can request a chaperone to be present during the consultation at the time you book your appointment with reception.
Please let reception know if you cannot manage the stairs to the first floor consulting rooms. There is access for wheelchairs to all ground floor consulting rooms and the toilets.
Booking Appointments Online
You are now able to book appointments online using the NHS App. Click on the link below for more information
There are some restrictions on the appointments you are able to book.
You can book an appointment with the GPs but not the nurses. Appointments with the nurses vary in length, depending on the procedure required, and therefore aren’t suitable to be booked online.
Online booking is available for appointments from 4 – 20 days ahead and only one appointment can be booked at a time.
The online system is not available for urgent appointments.
We are happy to offer telephone advice at any time during opening hours. You may be asked to hold on for the doctor or for the doctor to return your call later.
