The appointments information below is for patients of all ages.
If you have an urgent medical problem that you feel needs attention on the same day, please explain this to our Reception Staff. They will place you on our triage service, where required, to deal with your urgent request.
When you call, our Reception Staff will take your name and telephone number and further details about your condition. They will pass this on to either the duty doctor or nurse practitioner.
If the Clinician thinks you need to be seen urgently, you may be offered an appointment that day or they will provide advice.
For booking routine appointments you can call from 8.00am to book on the day appointments, if there is availability. You can also book routine appointments by calling after 2.00pm on a Friday for the following week.
You can also use an online form. We will respond within 2 working days.

All our regular weekday surgeries are by appointment only.

If you think that your problem may take a long time, please inform our Reception Staff so that allowances can be made for this.

These consultations are being carried out by a variety of clinicians including:

When you contact the surgery you will be asked for some brief information about your problem. This is so the reception team can ensure you have an appointment with the most appropriate Clinician and consultation method. You may be sent a text message link so that you can send a photograph of your condition to triage your appointment appropriately.
We can arrange an interpreter to attend a consultation with the patients.
The Reception Staff need to be told 2 working days before the appointment to arrange this.
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible.
If we have your mobile number we will send a text message reminder before an appointment. This allows you to cancel your appointment via text message.
