If you need to be seen urgently (the same day) we will endeavour to book you into an acute appointment. These will be offered strictly in time order and across both sites, we are not able to offer afternoon/evening emergency appointment times in the mornings. Our expectation is you will prioritise your request for an emergency appointment over other commitments. Our receptionists may ask you a few questions to ensure they book you into an appropriate appointment, however if you would rather not discuss your condition with them please just let them know.
Please see the links below to help you decide if you need an acute appointment

All doctors have pre bookable appointments. Please be aware that these are allocated 10 minutes. Your doctor will attempt to answer all of your queries in this time. However, they may ask you to book a further appointment, if necessary. Our doctors will endeavour to keep to their schedules, however occasionally unforseen delays may occur and we apologise and ask for your understanding at these times.
In general our doctors prefer to look after their own group of patients so that they can provide continuity of care. Recently we have contacted all patients advising them of their named GP, if you wish to confirm this please contact the surgery. Routine doctors appointments are also bookable on-line. Our GPs also do extended hours surgeries early mornings late evenings and some Saturday mornings. If you would like one of these appointments please ask at reception.
You can also speak to a doctor or nurse on the telephone - reception can book these slots for you.
Nurses and phlebotomists also have a range of pre bookable appointments.
If you need to be seen urgently (the same day) you will usually be offered an appointment with one of our experienced nurse practitioners. These will be offered strictly in time order, we are not able to offer afternoon/evening emergency appointment times in the mornings.
Most consulting rooms are downstairs. If you are booking a blood test please let us know if stairs are a problem for you.
Cancellations and Running Late
If you cannot attend, or are delayed for an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else and provide you with a new appointment.
