How to see the Doctor or Nurse

We would like to encourage patients to make an appointment to see a Doctor or Nurse in advance, however we can give appointments on the day if it is urgent. Routine appointments can be booked two months in advance. It is always better if you can tell the receptionist why you need to see the Doctor or Nurse, so she can ensure you get the right appointment and the right amount of time.

A Doctor is available each weekday morning and afternoon by appointment or for emergencies ring between 8:30am -11:00am, on the day.

At 4:00pm each weekday afternoon we run a surgery for children only up to 11 years of age. Please arrive by 4:00pm. This is for children with acute illnesses only. Any long standing issues should be dealt with by appointment.

How to make an Appointment

Phone 667623 on weekdays between 8:30am and 6:00pm. For routine matters please try to book your appointment at least one week in advance. We try to keep later appointments for people who wish to come after work.

You will not be seen if you are 10 mins or more late for your appointment. If you cannot attend an appointment please let the surgery know so that appointment can be given to someone else.

If you are caring for someone frail or ill at home and can only attend certain times please tell the receptionist and we will attempt to make special arrangements. 

If you think your consultation with the Doctor needs more than 10 minutes, please inform the receptionist.

Advice and information by telephone

Our Doctors are happy to speak to you on the telephone at the end of morning surgery. Please phone the surgery before 10am if you require a telephone appointment.  A doctor will then call you back at the earliest convenient time following their morning surgery.

Appointments for the Nurse

We operate a booked appointment system for all clinics. When booking your appointment please let Reception know what your appointment is for, so that they can advise you when would be the best time for you to come and the length of appointment you require.

Home Visits

Doctors provide the best service in surgery but if you are housebound or too ill to come to the surgery please ring 667623 before 10.30 am if possible to request a visit. Give the receptionist details of what is wrong with you so she can tell the Doctor the degree of urgency. Please do not ask for a visit if you can come to the surgery.
