To Make an Appointment
The surgery operates an appointments system and appointments can be made by telephone or by calling into the practice.
Please note that an appointment is for one person only. If you have a number of issues to discuss, please ask for a longer appointment or you may be asked to rebook as consultations are limited in time.
Patients may make an appointment with any of the doctors but should try to see the same doctor throughout the course of treatment. We operate an "on the day" Appointment System but future booking is possible up to 6 weeks in advance for early morning or afternoon appointments. As a result of patient feedback, we now ask patients that require a same day appointment to ring at 8.30am for both morning and afternoon appointments.
We also offer telephone consultations with the GPs. Telephone consultations can be booked for discussing medication, requesting sick notes and discussing test results. To book a telephone consultation, please telephone the surgery as normal.
Please note, if you are making an appointment for a medical examination such as DVLA medical or an employment medical please tell the receptionist as she will need to give you a longer appointment.
The surgery offers a free text message appointment reminder service. If you would like to sign up for this free service, please contact the surgery or download and complete the form and return to the surgery. CLICK HERE to download.
If you require a home visit, please help us to plan our journey by telephoning before 10.00am. Children with mild fevers or rashes can usually be seen at the surgery in an isolation room. The final decision for a visit is at the discretion of the GP so ensure that you leave your telephone number when you request a visit. Please note that not having transport does not warrant a request for a home visit.
