To book an appointment call 01322 226090. Patients can pre-book either a face-to-face or a telephone appointment with the GP or nurse practitioner of their choice.
Urgent appointments are provided for by our 'Sit and Wait' appointments. Especially for children, the elderly or anyone who is ill and needs to see a clinician on the day, these appointments do not need to be pre-booked. Simply turn up at 11am (but no later than 11.30am) on the day you need to be seen urgently and a clinican will see you when it is your turn to be seen. On an average day, most people are seen within an hour of the clinic starting at 11am. Definitely better than going to A+E! Please note that as these are urgent appointments you cannot choose which clinician to see
Non urgent appointments can be booked up to two weeks in advance and are usually available within a week.
Extended opening hours We offer early morning and later evening pre-bookable appointments for those unable to attend the surgery at the usual times. Appointments are available from 7.00am to 7.50am on Tuesday mornings and 6.30pm to 7.50pm on Thursday evenings. These can also be booked up to 2 weeks in advance.
Appointments for the phlebotomist and midwife can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance.
One appointment is for 10 minutes. If you need longer or if it is for more than one person please inform the receptionist when booking.
Please let us know if you would like someone to accompany you during an examination or if you need to discuss any matters in a private room and we will be able to accommodate you.
If you feel your problem could be dealt with over the telephone rather than by visiting the surgery you can book a telephone appointment. When booking you will need to leave a contact telephone number with the receptionist. You will then be given an approximate time when the GP will call you back.
Please inform us as soon as possible if you cannot attend an appointment in order that we can give the slot to someone else. The practice policy is to warn patients who fail to turn up without prior notice and repeat offenders will be asked to find another doctor.
