- We offer a range of appointment times ranging from the same day to up to four weeks.
- Please make a separate appointment for each person who needs to be seen.
- If you need to see the doctor about more than one problem then please ask the receptionist to book you a double appointment.
- You can make an appointment with any of the clinical staff either by telephone (20757025) or in person at the surgery.
- You do not have to tell the receptionist why you want to see the doctor or nurse, but it is helpful if you can do so. (For example, we book longer appointments for certain things such as child development checks, and some examinations or treatments can only be given by certain doctors.) You can ask to speak to the receptionist in private if you wish.
You can now book routine appointments online
- There are a number of appointments each day set aside for urgent problems.

If you are not sure whether you should see the doctor or the nurse, please ask at reception.
- We are now able to pre-book phone calls with the doctor of your choice providing they are dealing with an ongoing problem.
