To book an appointment either:
General appointments with the doctors are available as follows:
We encourage patients to have a long term relationship with their General Practitioner and therefore whenever possible please book ahead to see the doctor you know.
However most of the doctors in this practice work part-time, this works to your advantage in that they are well motivated and enthusiastic but does mean not everyone is available every day.
You may have to wait for a routine appointment with the doctor of your choice. You can of course book with another doctor if the wait is unacceptable.
Appointments are released one week in advance for the doctors.
We also have appointments available on the day, both morning and afternoon with the ‘Duty Doctor’. This is by appointment only. Please phone the reception staff and you will be given a time to attend. While we will obviously try to keep to time the Duty Doctor who runs these sessions is also on call for any emergencies and so a wait may be unavoidable.
We are only able to deal with one problem in this surgery, and the Duty Doctor may not be able to deal with all requests on the day.
It is preferable not to attend these sessions for long standing problems or long term certificates as these are better dealt with in a routine appointment by the doctor who knows you.

Please notify us as soon as possible if you cannot attend an appointment.
Patients who fail to attend an appointment without notifying the practice, waste doctor and nurse time and prolong unnecessarily the waiting time for other patients. This is unacceptable behaviour and persistent offenders will be asked to find another practice.
