Appointments can be booked daily from 8.00am and 2.00pm. 

Our telephone lines open at 8.00am for booking on the day appointments. You can book appointments for the morning 8.00am on that day and in the afternoon, from 2.00pm on that day.  

All our consultations are by appointment at the surgery.  To ensure that you are seen by the most appropriate member of the surgery team, the receptionist will ask you for information that is essential for booking your appointment. The receptionist will ask you to give them a summary of the reason you are calling. They may ask whether this is a new or on-going problem. If you prefer you can reply 'it's personal'. 

This information is to direct you to an appropriate appointment or call from our team. It is essential that you co-operate with the receptionists and understand that it may be more appropriate for a nurse, healthcare assistant, clinical pharmacist, social prescriber or first contact practitioner to speak to you.  

It is NOT always essential to be seen by a doctor. We have a team of 'attached' clinical staff who can also advise you.

The receptionists are all bound by strict rules of confidentiality. 

We understand that sometimes you may not be able to make an appointment that you booked or you may need to re-schedule. 

If you cannot keep your appointment please inform us as soon as possible so it may be offered to another patient.  

You must inform the surgery if you change your contact telephone numbers - your home and mobile.

Please remember one appointment per person.

Please Note: If you are running late for your appointment please phone the surgery to let them know. If you arrive more than 10 minutes after your appointment you may be asked to re-book or be seen at the end of the surgery at the Doctor's discretion.

Unfortunately, any patient who arrives 10 minutes late won’t be seen that day and will have to re-book
