Routine appointments are available every weekday in the morning and afternoon. Routine appointments can be made up to 2 weeks in advance by:
The surgery is open continuously from 8.00 am – 6.30 pm for telephone calls and you can book a telephone slot to speak to a doctor up to a week in advance.
The GPs consult between 8.00am and 11.30am and 2.00pm and 6.00pm.
Due to an increase in the number of inappropriate appointments being booked with GPs (ie – travel vaccinations, dressings) the doctors have requested that our reception staff ask for a reason for all appointments. This will help reception book patients in with the most appropriate health professional. Patients are not obliged to give a reason for their need for an appointment to reception, and in such cases, reception will mark the appointment ‘personal’ so the doctors are aware.
Medical emergency appointments are available every weekday in the am and pm. If you need an urgent appointment you will be seen as soon as possible on that day. Please help the receptionists by telling them whether or not your problem is urgent.
If you need to cancel an appointment, we ask that you call us at your earliest convenience on 01606 836481 so we can offer the appointment slot to other patients.
If you booked your appointment online you can also cancel it via the online system too.
