For routine queries please telephone after 11am when the surgery is less busy.

Consultations by appointments are for 10 minutes. To reduce footfall through the surgery during the ongoing Covid pandemic, with a few exceptions, we will continue to offer telephone appointments in the first instance. Please rest assured that if the clinician thinks you need to be seen, then you will be given a face to face appointment.  These precautions are to safeguard our vulnerable patients and staff.

We are still experiencing unprecedented demand for appointments. Only medically urgent problems will be offered a same day appointment, and these few appointments are released at 8.30 and again at 1.30 pm.  Please note this has changed from 12 noon.

Your initial call may be directed to our specialised nursing staff so that you can make better use of our services. We will, if at all possible, give you an appointment with the clinician of your choice. If you cannot keep your appointment please let us know.

Appointments for private medical examinations cannot be booked on-line as these as more time is required for the examination. Examples of this are Insurance Company medicals, HGV licence, motor racing licence, pilots licence etc. Please contact the Receptionists for more information and to book an appointment if necessary.
