Can another healthcare professional help?
Sometimes the GP is not the most appropriate healthcare professional to deal with your ailment. Please see the information on see a doctor or healthcare professional, which might help you decide whether a GP appointment is truly necessary or whether it might be better for you to see a pharmacist, optician, dentist, or other healthcare professional.
- Appointments may be made online, by telephone or in person
- Consultations are by appointment only. In keeping with government guidelines we are working towards an appointment system that allows access to a doctor or nurse within 48 hours
- Please make one appointment for each member of the family who needs to be seen
- We try to keep to time but please be patient if someone before you takes longer than planned
- Appointments are normally ten minute slots and so if you have a complicated problem, or more than one problem, please ask for a longer appointment
- It is Practice policy to allow patients to choose whichever doctor they wish to attend in the Practice (however this may not always be possible during periods of annual leave or illness).
Please help us
If you are not able to attend your appointment please let us know in time so that the time can be used for someone else. If you are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment you may be asked to re-book.
A certain number of pre-bookable routine appointments will be available each week. These become available to book at 2pm on the Friday before each week. If all pre-bookable appointments are filled and you need an appointment please phone the surgery at 8.30am on the day that you want seen.
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.
GP Consulting Times
Please refer to our GP consulting times. (Please note times may vary during periods of annual leave or illness).

If a patient aged between 16 and 75 years has not had a practice consultation within a period of three years, we are happy, on request, to provide a consultation.
