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 and nurse 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
Wednesday 8.00am – 11.00am and 2.00pm – 4.30pm
Thursday 8.20am – 11.00am and 2pm – 5.10pm
Friday 8.00am – 11.00am and 1.40pm – 4.30pm

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 or advanced nurse practitioner’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen.  The advanced nurse practitioner is an experienced and highly educated Registered Nurse who manages the complete clinical care for their patient.  They can assess, diagnose, treat and prescribe for patients with complex, multi-dimensional problems.  They have the authority to refer and admit patients where clinically appropriate.
