Where normal working hours apply, Doctors appointments are available between 8.30 a.m. – 11.30 a.m. and 3.30 p.m. – 6.00 p.m.
During extended opening hours appointments are normally available between:
Evenings (telephone) 6.30 and 7.30 p.m. and Saturdays 8.30 a.m. and 12.30 p.m.
Please note that extended opening hours are for patients with pre-bookable appointments – if you have an emergency during these times you must contact the out of hours service.
We have routine appointments available that can be booked up to 28 days in advance. If you wish to see a specific doctor then please say so when booking the appointment. This may affect availability for you because some doctors work on specific days only.
Appointments are available Monday to Friday with doctors and other clinicians for patients needing to be seen urgently on the day.
We also have nurse practitioners and an emergency care practitioner, who have been trained to treat certain illnesses. Appointments are available with them each weekday.
The nurse practitioners are able to prescribe where necessary. If they are unable to help during your appointment with her, then she will arrange for you to see a doctor.
Nurse appointments are available weekdays at various times between opening hours. Please ask at Reception for details.
Our doctors and nurses are happy to discuss a particular problem with you over the telephone and provide advice accordingly, hopefully avoiding the need for you to come to the surgery unnecessarily.
Telephone appointments are either at the end of the morning surgery or the evening surgery. You will need to confirm your contact details for the call.
However, the doctor may feel that you still need to come to the surgery, because not all problems can be dealt with over the telephone. Please speak with a member of the Patient Services Team if you require a telephone consultation.
