  • Appointments

    If you need to speak to your doctor please telephone after surgery hours. The best time is about 11.30am.

    The surgery runs an appointment system. Appointments may be made in person by visiting the reception desk or by telephone.

    Unfortunately, except in cases of genuine emergency, you can not expect to be seen by a doctor or a nurse if you do not book an appointment.

    To book an appointment to see a practice nurse, please telephone the surgery number.

    Generally, it is not possible to specify a particular nurse as their availabilities vary and who you see will depend, to some extent, on what service you need. For example, our hypertension clinic is run by only two of our practice nurses. Please indicate to the receptionist what service you need at the time of booking.
