If booking a routine telephone appointment time between 7.30am and 12.30pm, patients should expect to receive a telephone call the day of their appointment before 1pm. Patients booking an appointment between 2pm and 6.30pm should expect to receive a telephone call in the afternoon before 7pm.

Obtaining an appointment
Our appointment line is open Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 6.00pm (except Wednesdays between 1pm and 2pm).
We offer pre-bookable appointments, usually well within two weeks ahead for a doctor and twelve weeks ahead for a nurse or for blood tests. Please ensure that a separate appointment is made for each person who needs to be seen.
If you do not need your appointment please cancel it before the allotted time. An appointment not attended means someone else has been unable to use that appointment slot.
If you would like to benefit from our text reminder service please see the receptionists. We will just need to take your mobile number from you for this.
The Urgent Care Clinic is for URGENT medical matters that cannot wait until the next routine appointment. This Clinic is run by our experienced Paramedic Practitioners and is supported by the Duty Doctor. Please see below for information.
Urgent Care Clinic
Our Paramedics work Monday to Friday and have bookable appointments (both telephone and face to face) which are available throughout the day.
When calling please give the receptionist your contact details and some information about your condition and they will ensure that you are either given a same day appointment or are contacted by a Clinician within a few hours. You are asked to keep close to your phone.
If the Clinician feels you need to be seen on the day then they will invite you to come to the surgery at a specific time. Please be aware that you may be asked to come in at short notice.
Please note: All appointment times given are approximate, whether this is for a telephone call or a face to face appointment. We try to ensure that our Urgent Care Clinic runs to time however if we have an emergency this can impact on the waiting time.
GP appointments can still be booked in advance for routine matters.
We welcome any feedback, good or bad, as we are always looking at ways in which we can improve. As a Practice we strive to provide the best possible service for our patients.
