Please book appointments appropriately, this helps us keep the wait for doctors appointments down. We recommend you seek advice from NHS choices or the Pharmacist if you are unsure if you need to see a doctor or nurse.
Appointments are available between 8.15am -6pm, apart from Thursdays when we shut at 1pm. We also offer early morning appointments (before 8am) and also Saturday mornings, these are all pre-bookable appointments aimed at workers who can’t get into normal surgery appointments.
Patients have the right to choose which doctor or nurse they wish to see, although if you do wish to see someone in particular, the wait time maybe a little longer.
Book on the Day Appointments
If the feel your problem is urgent and cannot wait until the next available routine
appointment, then you can request a same day appointment. If you are acutely unwell on that day you can call the surgery between 8.30 – 10am to ask for an on the day appointment. The receptionist may ask if you feel your problem is urgent for that day, this is to ensure we use the urgent appointments appropriately.
Do you have difficulty hearing/understanding English?
We can book interpreters for sign language as well as most other languages. We also have a hearing loop installed at the practice.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
