Monday – Friday: 8.00am – 6.00pm
Monday - Friday: 8.20am - 5.30pm
Appointments with our doctors, practice nurses and healthcare assistants are available between 08:30am and 5.00pm on weekdays.
The majority of the surgery appointments with our doctors can only be booked on the day, due to high rates of non-attendance if appointments are booked in advance. It is hoped that an appointment can be arranged on the same day if you telephone at 8.00am. If you feel your problem is urgent, please let the receptionist know.
If there is a reason why you can't phone at 8am to access an appointment then you may be directed to a GP to discuss the circumstances.
Most of our appointments with practice nurses and healthcare assistants can be made in advance at the reception desk or over the phone. There are also a limited number of doctors appointments which can be booked more than 2 days in advance, but these can be 2-3 weeks ahead and are suitable for non-urgent problems.
We also offer extended hours appointments once a week which are out with normal surgery opening hours, early morning and late in the evening. Please ask the receptionist for details.
We offer 10 minute appointments but if you think the medical problem will require extra time or if you would like to discuss more than one problem please ask the receptionist about arranging a double appointment.
If you feel that the appointment offered is not soon enough for your problem, please discuss your case with the doctor on the Triage Line (see below).
Telephone Triage Line – Tel. 713939
One of the doctors is available to discuss urgent medical issues each morning and afternoon. Please call early in the morning or afternoon to ensure the GP can all you back before we close.
Also, if you are looking for advice on something that you haven’t discussed with another GP before then the Triage GP may be able to help.
Please be advised, the triage line is not for GP specific queries or complex issues which you have been discussing with another GP. Please ask reception to book you a telephone appointment with your usual GP in these circumstances.
