Press 1 which will take you directly to our appointments line. Please remember that mornings, especially Mondays, are extremely busy and it may be easier for you to ring after 10:30 for a routine appointment.
Routine appointments with a GP are currently available two weeks in advance and with the nursing team up to four weeks in advance. It is a recommended that you book early to get a slot at a time convenient to you.
Whilst a very limited number of appointments are available for emergencies, there is often more demand than we can meet. If you really do need to see someone urgently please ring the above appointment number before 10:30. Please consider your request as you may be taking a slot that someone genuinely needs more than you.
It is sometimes possible to resolve an issue on the telephone which will take you less time and allows the doctor to consult more patients. Every day, each GP and a member of the nursing team has allocated telephone appointments. If you would like to speak to them rather than coming in, please telephone and a message will be given to the doctor or nurse who will ring you back. Please remember to leave the telephone number you can be contacted on.
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.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please call to advise. We will then be able to give the slot to someone else.
