We release our pre-bookable appointments with a doctor up to three weeks ahead.
We also can offer minor illness nurse appointments which are available daily. Our minor illness nurses are able to prescribe.
You can also see our clinical pharmacist who can see you for medication reviews we have appointments available on a Monday in the morning and all day on Tuesdays.
For routine, minor illness and clinical pharmacist appointments you can ring anytime of the day when the surgery is open.
You can also book appointments online via the link at the top of this page. In order to access online services registration is required in person with photographic identification. This will enable us to generate a username and password.
If you require an emergency appointment please call from 08:00 on any weekday. When you phone the receptionist is required to triage your symptoms so will ask you questions about your symptoms and decide with you if an emergency appointment is required. If so an appointment will be made for the same day with either a GP or one of our senior minor illness nurses or our clinical pharmacist.
If you do not require an urgent appointment you will be offered the next available pre-bookable appointment, this will be within the next three weeks.
The phone lines will be manned from 08:00 as usual. Emergencies will be dealt with immediately, however patients that attend the surgery to book an appointment will not be able to do so until 08:15.
As a surgery we have listened to our patients and we hope that this new system will result in patients being seen sooner and more appointments being available.
