Remember if you can’t make it – PLEASE cancel your appointment.
You can now book routine GP and Nurse appointments in the evening, at weekends and over bank holidays in your local area.
Pre-bookable appointments are available Monday-Friday, 6.30pm-8pm, plus weekends and bank holidays and you can be seen by a GP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant.
To book your appointment, contact the surgery during normal opening hours. Please be aware that the appointment may take place at another GP Practice in the area. If you need urgent medical advice when the surgery is closed, you should continue to call NHS 111.
Please book one appointment for each patient who wishes to be seen.
To see a doctor of your choice please allow 3 to 4 days. Please understand we cannot always give you the doctor of your choice as he/she may not be available. Every effort is made to ensure that you are seen on time but if for some reason there is a delay, you will be informed.
Our Practice Nurse is available by appointment for injections, diagnostic tests, smears, new patient checks, routine blood tests and blood pressure checks. We also run clinics specifically for diabetes, asthma, well baby, ante-natal, Coronary Heart Disease, hypertension and advice on stopping smoking.
If there are no face to face contact or telephone appointments left the receptionist will ask you some questions and the 'Doctor on Call' will telephone you and either give you advice over the phone or ask you to come to the surgery at an appropriate time.
Telephone appointments are only available during surgery hours.
Advice is also available from the NHS 111 service by calling 111 from your landline or mobile phone.
If you anticipate that you may require an examination by the Doctor and feel that you would like a chaperone to be present, please make reception aware at the time of booking your appointment so that this can be arranged. Alternatively bring along a member of your family or friend to your appointment.
If you are unable to attend for your appointment please tell us in good time so that we are able to offer another patient the use of that appointment.
