During surgery opening times appointments can be made by telephone or at the surgery. We also offer an online booking service, you will need to register to use this, please click on the 'Online Services' tab or ask at reception for further information.
Please note if you register for online access without a registration letter from the practice you will need to bring TWO forms of identity (one of which must be photographic) into the surgery and fill in an application form before your account is activated.
A full appointment system is used with a limited number of spaces reserved for emergencies and urgent problems. The receptionist may ask for brief details of your problem so that they can assess the urgency with which you need to be seen.
We will always ask if you wish to see a GP of your choice. If this is the case we will offer you the next available routine appointment with the named doctor. However, if you can be seen earlier we will offer you an appointment with another doctor.
Please tell the receptionist if the appointment is for more than one person.
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. This can now be done online.
