Book In Advance
You may book up to 3 months in advance to see any GP or Practice Nurse allowing you to plan ahead or arrange time off work.
Book ‘On the Day’
50% of our appointments can be booked ‘on the day’ and become available from 8am. You can phone or call in at the surgery to book.
A service allowing patients to book and cancel GP appointments online. Please contact the practice for details of how to register for this service.
If you have several issues to discuss with the GP or think that you may require a personal examination, please request a double appointment. This will ensure that the doctor has adequate time to deal with your problems and will not keep other patients waiting
Patients with urgent problems will be seen on the same day. If the GP of your preference is not available you will be offered an appointment with one of the other partners. We aim to ensure that anyone contacting the surgery has access to a GP, nurse or other health care professional within 48 hours in accordance with their clinical need. If you are unable to keep an appointment please let us know. Missed appointments not only waste the GP and other staff’s time but prevent another sick patient from seeing a doctor sooner.
