We operate a timed appointment system for all doctor and nurse consultations. To make an appointment telephone the surgery or attend in person during our opening times. When you make an appointment, you may request a preference for any of the doctors in the practice. Please understand that it is not always possible for you to see a specific doctor at a given time.
GP Consultations are held during the following times:
- Tuesdays 07:30 - 18:30
- Monday to Friday 09:00 - 17:00
If you feel your condition cannot wait for the next available appointment please let the reception staff know and they can arrange for you to be seen as an ‘extra’. Please be prepared to sit and wait to be seen and kindly do not abuse this system.
It is usually possible to speak to a doctor although we prefer not to be interrupted during a consultation. We cannot specify an exact time when the doctor will call you back as it will depend on when they are available.
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.
Our nurses are available by appointment:
- Monday to Thursday 08:30 - 16:30
- Friday 08:30 - 13:45
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.
