We operate an appointment system Monday to Friday for the doctors and nurses. We offer ‘Same Day Access’ clinics with our Nurse or Paramedic team for patients requesting a same day appointment. The Nurse or Paramedic will assess and treat the patient under the support of the Duty Doctor as necessary.
Each GP appointment is of a 10 minute duration which is sufficient time to deal with one problem. If you have more than one problem, you may be asked by the GP to make a further appointment. Nurse and Health Care Assistant appointments vary in length and the receptionist will advise how long you need.
Appointments can only be made by telephone from 8.00am until 6.00pm Monday to Friday. However you can book blood tests and cervical screening appointments via our automated telephone booking system (using the usual surgery number) or via the NHSApp, 24/7 even when the surgery is closed.
We also provide Extended Access with a Doctor, Health Care Assistant or Practice Nurse from 7.30am to 8.00am Monday to Friday. These are ideally for commuters and routine, non-urgent appointments for those patients unable to attend during normal hours due to their work commitments.
Reminder – we use a text reminder system to remind our patients of their appointments and also to send you information from time to time so please ensure we have up to date contact information for you at all times – if we do not have your mobile telephone number then please let us have it and if you change your address or contact details we need to know.
A trained chaperone will be available if the situation or doctor requests it.
Please tell the receptionist if you would like a chaperone to be present during your appointment
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. You can inform us of cancellations online via our secure admin messaging portal
