Appointments

You can arrange an appointment via:

If you are not sure which type of appointment you need or have a specific question, please call our reception team between 08:00 and 18.30 Monday to Friday:

  • Routine GP appointments can be booked up to 6 weeks in advance. We encourage you to see the same doctor where possible for continuity of care. Most GP appointments are 10 minutes long so your GP may ask you to book a further appointment if you wish to deal with more than one medical problem.
  • Same day GP appointments are released for booking from 07:30 Monday to Friday. These appointments can be used for urgent or non-urgent medical problems.
  • Telephone appointments can also be booked online or by telephone. They are convenient if you cannot attend the surgery in person. They can be used for telephone advice, follow-up or discussing test results. If a telephone appointment is not available with your doctor our reception team will ask your doctor to call you on their next working day.

You may be given telephone advice, advised to attend a local pharmacy, offered an emergency appointment or advised to go to A&E. Please call us rather than coming to the practice if you have an urgent medical problem, as we do not offer a walk-in service. If you have a life-threatening emergency, please call for an emergency ambulance by dialing 999.

‘8 to 8’ hub appointments 7 days a week can be booked by speaking to reception to arrange, if you need to be seen out of practice opening hours. This service would be provided at another surgery.
