A single appointment lasts ten minutes, which is usually enough to deal with one problem. If you have more than one problem to cover you may be asked to book a further appointment to see the GP.
Appointments with the nursing staff can be booked up to one month in advance.
You can now book some routine doctors’ appointments up to 2 weeks in advance. There are still some routine same day appointments available from 8.30 am.
SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS - Please let the receptionist know what the problem is so that she can signpost you to the most appropriate healthcare professional. Our Nurse Practitioner can deal with the majority of same day minor illness problems which do not require a doctor and is able to prescribe.
Patients are unfortunately still failing to attend appointments. If you are unable to attend an appointment, can you please contact the surgery to cancel to enable another patient to take the appointment. Patients who have a mobile phone number registered with the surgery will be sent a text to remind them of their appointment.
