We aim to offer you a routine doctor's appointment within 2 working days, however, this may be a little longer if you are waiting to see a specific doctor.
We have appointments which are available for booking in advance, usually up to a month.
We also offer appointments with our practice nurse specialists who are qualified to see patients and prescribe medication if necessary.
If all appointments are fully booked we offer a Triage Service whereby a Clinician (Doctor/Nurse) will discuss your problem with you over the telephone and offer appropriate advice.
We also have an arrangement with Pharmacies who will give you advice and medication if required, for certain Minor Ailments. The receptionist will advise whether this is appropriate.
We will ensure that if the clinician or Pharmacist decides that you need to be seen, you will be given an appointment with the Duty doctor.
Note: Please remember to cancel an appointment if you are unable to attend.
Drop in clinics - Open Access
For on-the-day help visit our Drop-in clinic, one problem per patient from 08:30 to 10:00 Monday - Friday. This clinic is for new problems and not for routine follow-up, you will be seen by the Duty Clinician for that day. You can ask for a male or female clinician, but may not necessarily be seen by your usual Doctor.
No appointment is required for this clinic.
We also offer telephone advice - you may not need to come to the surgery so we could save you a trip! These are pre-booked, just ring or some into the surgery to request a telephone consultation.
