Appointmentscalendar

Routine Appointments

GP consultations are by appointment and can be booked over the telephone, in person at reception or online via the above link. Appointments are generally held between 08:30 - 11:30 and 15:00 - 17:40.

Urgent Situations

The Nurse Practitioners provide a daily open surgery for sudden onset conditions within the last 48 hours. The times of these surgeries are generally between 08:30 - 11:30 (bookable after 08:00) and 14:30 - 17:30 (bookable after 12:00).

These appointments should not be used for complicated medication reviews.

Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a Practice Nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.

Cancellations

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.
