Appointments - SAVE TIME DO IT ONLINE
Did you know that you can register for online services? This will enable you to book your appointment using your computer, tablet or smartphone. If you would like to register for this service please speak to one of our practice team.
The practice can be contacted from 08:00 to 18.30 Monday to Friday for emergencies and general enquiries.
Please note that the telephone is always busy in the morning - contact us in the afternoon if possible.
We offer a range of appointments throughout the day including urgent appointments for the same day and routine appointments which can be booked up to six weeks in advance.
Before making an appointment, please consider whether you need to see a doctor or whether an appointment with a nurse may be suitable.
Appointments can be made by telephone or in person. A single appointment for a doctor is for 10 minutes. Should you wish to have a longer consultation, please ask the receptionist when making the appointment as this will help avoid delays for other patients.
You may be accompanied by a relative or a friend at any consultation, but please introduce them to your doctor at the beginning of the consultation. If you would like a chaperone to be present during any intimate examination, please ask the clinician before the examination commences.
If you cannot keep your appointment, please let us know so that we can offer it to another patient. You can telephone us at any time and press option 2 which connects you directly to voicemail box so you can leave a message to cancel your appointment. You will not be able to speak to a member of staff so cannot change your appointment on this line. We cannot respond to other messages left on this line.
Our practice nurses are available for routine appointments throughout the day and these can be booked by telephoning the appointment line.
If there is a medical emergency at home that is life-threatening, please call an ambulance by telephoning 999. For other emergencies please telephone the surgery option 1 and speak to a receptionist.
