Requesting a Routine Appointment

If you wish an appointment you will need to phone the practice on T: 01479 810258 initially. Our receptionists will ask for an outline of the issue you wish to discuss and you will be called back by one of our clinical staff who will assess the need for an appointment. Most appointments will now take place via telephone or online but a face-to-face appointment will be arranged if needed.

Please do not come to the practice if you do not have an appointment booked.

It is important that you do attend appointments that have not been cancelled be they regular appointments, child immunisations or hospital appointments.

We aim to offer our patients access to a member of the Primary Care Team within 2 working days (not including weekends) and an appointment with a named doctor within 5 working days (not including weekends).

To book an appointment please call us between 8.30am and 5pm.
From 8 – 8.30am and 5 – 5.30pm we try to keep the lines clear for emergencies.

Can’t make your appointment?

We ask that you call and let us know in advance.  In that way, we can release the appointment for someone else.  We monitor non-attendance and have no option but to deal with repeat offenders in line with our ‘DNA Policy’, which can be read here DNA Policy

Emergency Appointments

08:00 – 18:00 Monday to Friday

We have a doctor on call for emergencies between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday. Genuine emergencies such as heart attacks, road traffic accidents etc. will always take priority so please bear with us if the duty doctor is tied up at an emergency.

GP Telephone Advice Appointments

Between 09:00 – 09:30 and 14:00 – 14:30 every day, we offer telephone advice from our duty doctor. This is useful if for example you just want some advice about a condition or medication. Please be aware that at peak times our duty doctor can be extremely busy (especially if an unexpected emergency occurs). We will always try and keep you informed of any delays but the nature of the job is such that this can be difficult to predict at times.

Practice Nurse Appointments

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor.
