Appointments

Urgent and routine appointments

  • use our appointment request form, Monday to Friday 08:30am to 06:30pm. Everybody contacting the surgery will go through the online form, ideally completed online meaning you do not have to contact the surgery by phone to request any appointment. Any patient contacting the surgery by phone or in person, will be asked to go online. If patients do not have access to the internet or feel unable to complete the form our receptionists will be able to assist. For more info please click here  

When you get in touch, we’ll ask what you need help with.

We will use the information you give us to choose the most suitable doctor, nurse or health professional to help you.

Your appointment

However you choose to contact us, we may offer you a consultation:

  • by phone
  • face to face at the surgery
  • by text

Appointments by phone or by text can be more flexible and often means you get help sooner.

If you need medical help now, use NHS 111 online or call 111.

NHS 111 online is for people aged 5 and over. Call 111 if you need help for a child under 5.

Call 999 in a medical or mental health emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.

Home visits

If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.

A doctor may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
