We run all our surgeries by an appointment only system. Appointments can be booked by telephoning the surgery or calling in to reception.
Our normal appointment times are:
Monday to Friday 08.20 - 12.20 and 14.00 - 18.00
Did you know you can now book appointments online? Please speak to a receptionist if you would like to register for this service. If you are already registered, click on the link above to take you to the website where you can make a pre-bookable appointment with a doctor.
We try to make sure you see the doctor of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor.
The doctor can only see one person per consultation, and if you have multiple problems and feel you need a longer appointment, please mention this to the receptionist when booking and they will try and give you a longer appointment where possible.
If you have booked an appointment that you no longer require please telephone the surgery to cancel the appointment. The sooner you are able to cancel, the more likely it is that we can offer the appointment to someone else.
If you do not attend and do not cancel a booked appointment on more than 2 occasions in a 12 month period, you risk losing your registration at the surgery.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
You only need a doctor’s note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days. Your employer will provide you with an SC2 self-certificate form for shorter periods of illness.
As well as our practice, there are many other local NHS services you can contact for health advice, information or treatment.
Before you do, remember that you can treat many minor ailments such as colds, coughs and indigestion by keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home.
We suggest you keep the following:
We teach medical students and sometimes you may be asked to see the doctor or nurse with a student present. You will always be asked beforehand if this is acceptable and you may ask for the student to withdraw if you prefer to have your consultation in private.
