Appointments

We run all our surgeries by an appointment only system. Appointments can be booked by telephoning the surgery in advance or on the day you wish to be seen.

We are open 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday. GP appointments are available during the hours listed below, but may vary due to other commitments, holidays and to address patient needs. Extended hours appointments are available  early morning or evenings, depending on GP availability. These may be more suitable for people who are working during the day. To see a doctor or nurse please telephone us or come into the surgery to book an appointment. Routine GP appointments can also be booked online once you have registered to use this service.

Appointments are available at the following times:

Monday 8.20am – 11.00am and 2.00pm – 5.10pm
Tuesday 8.30am – 11.00am and 2.00pm – 5.10pm

Sister Jane McFarlane is our Nurse Practitioner, who can see patients aged over 5 for minor illnesses. Jane can see patients for complaints such as: sore throats and ears, coughs and colds, nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea or constipation, that are unable to be treated with over the counter remedies at Pharmacy First.  She can also treat minor skin infections or rashes (not long term skin conditions), patients with urinary tract infections (excluding young children and gentlemen over 50) and ladies with period problems. You can book a Minor Illness appointment online with Jane for any of the ailments listed above.  If you are unsure if these appointments would be appropriate for you please contact reception on 01475 608888 to discuss to try and avoid having a wasted journey.

You can view, book and cancel appointments at your convenience if you register online using Patient Access for appointments.  To register for online services please contact the surgery in the first instance to allow your registration form to be issued for collection.  Please note that proof of ID and an e-mail address are required to be able to set up an account.  The appointment booking service is currently only available for routine GP appointments.  If you need to see a doctor more urgently, or wish to make an appointment with another member of the practice team please telephone on 01475 608888.

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.

If you are too ill to come to the surgery and you require a visit at home, please call the surgery before 10am. Home visits take up much more of a doctor’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen.
