Afternoon surgeries are pre-booked and some same day access with various start times for different doctors, you can book 4 weeks in advance. One appointment is for one patient only. If there is more than one patient that wishes to be seen please tell the receptionist at the time of booking or if you feel you may need a longer appointment with the doctor, please tell the receptionist and it will be made as a double appointment for you.

Urgent Appointments

If you need to see a doctor you can request a call back and wither our triage nurse or a G.P will contact you that day,  you may be offered a 5 minute emergency sit and wait appointment at the end of surgery. Please note these appointments are not for repeat medication, sick notes or routine problems.

Non-English Speakers

Our doctors have a variety of language skills that make it easier for you to attend your medical appointments and have a conversation in your first language.

Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly. Nurses’ appointment times vary depending on procedure. There is a nurse at both sites Monday to Friday at various hours.

Cancellations

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.
