We are continuing to monitor and our appointments system. We are now offering a range of same day and routine telephone appointments, online appointments and in person appointments.
In-person appointments need to be triaged by our doctors, so please request online via eConsult on our home page, or phone and leave as much information as possible with reception. We can also accept photographs of certain clinical issues (eg skin lesions) to make access as easy as possible through this online service. This sends your information directly to our GPs to review and we will get back to you usually within 2 working days.
If you require a same day appointment please phone the surgery any weekday at 8am. Once same day appointments are full you will be offered the next routine appointment or given the option for our online eConsult system.
If you have a medical emergency the reception staff will need to take as much detail as possible so it can be dealt with appropriately.*
Your GP may suggest you have a VIDEO CONSULTATION. These consultations are by invitation only. If you speak to your GP and are invited to a video consultation, please use the following website address:

Your appointment with doctors are allocated 10 minutes. Nurse appointments vary in length. Please think about what is important for you to discuss if you have several issues. The Patients Association has some helpful advice about making the most of your GP 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.
Surgeries are busy but the GPs do their best to run to time. It is therefore very important that you come to your appointment on time. If you are late, the GP may not be able to see you.
Text Reminder Service
If we have your mobile number on record and you have consented to its use, you will be sent an appointment reminder automatically. If you do not want to take advantage of this service, please inform reception.
