If you have a serious medical emergency such as a collapse, acute shortness of breath or a heart attack, you should dial 999 immediately.
We book appointments for the GPs and the Nurse Practitioners up to 2 weeks in advance. Our hopes are that if you wish to see a GP regarding a pre-existing condition then you can book in to an appointment within the 2 weeks. If you suffer from a long term condition such as diabetes, COPD or Hypertension then we have nurse led clinics for these rather than GP appointments.
Please be aware that many of the GPs are now part time and are happy for you to see the newer Doctors -
SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS
We are no longer triaging same day appointments as a matter of routine - but please do not take a same day appointment for issues such as a sick note - if unsure please ask one of the receptionists.
There are many occasions when you may feel you need to see the doctor when in fact another member of our team is more appropriate – please do not be offended if the reception staff ask what the problem is, they are only trying to direct you to the most appropriate appointment.
Extended Hours Appointments
Unfortunately due to a reduction in funding we will no longer be participating in the formal extended hours scheme from 1st April 2012. We do have a number of appointments available at 8.00am and some between 5.00pm and 5.30pm.
From 1st April 2016 we are open every Saturday morning from 8am- 12pm - this is for URGENT problems only. We only have 1 GP and 1 Nurse working it is not fully staffed like a week day.
PLEASE ASK RECEPTION IF YOU HAVE ANY QUERIES.
AT ALL OTHER TIMES IF YOU NEED MEDICAL ATTENTION THAT CANNOT WAIT UNTIL WE RE-OPEN THEN PLEASE CALL 111
Book your appointments online
Before you can start booking GP appointments online you must first register your details for this service.
It is quick and easy to register - just ask at the reception desk. Once registered you will be able to view any appointments you have already made, cancel them if necessary, or book a new appointment with the doctor.
When you book an appointment online you will receive confirmation which you can print off and bring with you when you attend the surgery. There is no need to reconfirm
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO KEEP YOUR APPOINTMENT PLEASE LET US KNOW SO IT MAY BE GIVEN TO SOMEONE ELSE.
If you “fail to attend” 3 appointments within a year you WILL be removed from our register and need to register with another practice.
