Surgeries are all by appointment. Please see surgery hours for details of surgery times. We aim to offer most appointments within one working day but guarantee to offer one within two working days.
Urgent cases will always be seen on the same day. You may express a preference to see a particular GP but this may not always be possible.
We have a number of appointments reserved for urgent cases on the
day and if they are not needed they will be available to book.
We offer early morning appointments from 7.15am one day a week with a GP or Practice Nurse.
If you are unable to keep an appointment then please do phone and cancel it so it may be given to another patient.
IF THE SURGERY IS CLOSED PATIENTS CAN ATTEND A WALK IN CENTRE
