Our Appointment System
The majority of GP and nurse appointments are ten-minute duration. We ask that you try to observe the “One appointment, one problem” ethos. We strive to deal with each medical problem to the highest standard and this proves to be difficult if we are asked to deal with a number of problems in one appointment slot.
We are changing the way we offer appointments
If you have a Cough, Fever, or Loss, or Change of Taste or smell you are to remain at home and get a test. Do not attend the surgery. A sick note is not required for this Self Certification Period.
On the Day - Phone lines open at 8 am.
Routine in Advance
If a GP has requested to see you for a future appointment they will either make the appointment for you or ask you to book at reception.
