Appointments System

  • Routine Face to Face Appointments - These can be booked up to two weeks ahead by telephoning 01670 811811. The practice aims to be able to offer a routine appointment within three working days but in times where demand exceeds availability this will not always be possible.
  • Routine Telephone Appointments - lots of things can be dealt with on the telephone, such as medication reviews, repeat sick notes and review of long term problems.  If you are not sure whether you will need to be seen, make a telephone appointment, and the doctor can arrange to see you face to face if necessary.
  • Same Day Appointments - anybody requesting to be seen on the same day will now be offered a telephone appointment with the GP. If the doctor needs to examine you, they will organise for you to come to the surgery.  Up to two thirds of problems can be dealt with over the phone, and this system allows more time for the doctors to spend with those who need it most. Phone after 8.30am for a same day phone appointment. Click here for more information about telephone appointments.
  • Urgent Advice - please let the receptionist know if you feel your call is urgent - we have a duty doctor available for emergency problems from 8.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday.
