(Our surgery is closed between 6.30pm to 8.00am Monday to Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday)

If you are experiencing a true emergency dial 999.

Routine Appointments

A routine appointment is for 10 minutes, which is enough time to discuss 1-2 problems.  We have a limited number of 5 minute appointments daily which are used for urgent issues.  These offer enough time to discuss 1 problem only.

We also have telephone appointments available daily with GPs.  Please provide a contact number as the clinician will only call once, usually after morning surgery but before 12 noon.

When visiting the surgery for an appointment, please allow time for traffic especially at the moment with all the roadworks in our area so that you arrive in good time.  If you do arrive late you might not been seen and may be offered another appointment so as not to delay those waiting to see the doctor for that surgery.

Late Evening and Saturday Appointments

We are an extended hours practice and have a minium of two Saturday morning and two late evening surgeries per month. These appointments are designed for patients who work and find it difficult to come to the surgery during the working week.  Please note that these are GP appointments only and must be booked in advance.  There is no walk-in service available.

Home Visits

All home visit requests should be made by contacting the Practice by 10.30am.  Medical attention is better dealt with at the surgery where full examination and treatment can be administered so we prefer patients to visit us in surgery.  Please ring the main switchboard before 10.30am if you think you need a home visit and be prepared to tell the receptionist about your condition so that we cna decide the best way to assess you.  The Doctor may wish to speak with you on the telephone.  Home visits are normally made between 12pm and 2pm.

A home visit is usually only carried out in the following instances:

  • Terminal illness
  • Severe illness
  • Housebound patients or those unfit to travel

If you are suffering from a severe case of any of the symptoms below dial 999:

  • Severe chest pain
  • Severe shortness of breath
  • Severe bleeding
  • Any kind of major collapse

It is not usual for the doctor to visit children with: Fevers, coughs, colds, sore thoats, earache, headache, diarrhoea, or vomitting

It is not usual for the doctor to visit adults with: Coughs, sore thoats, ‘the flu’, back pains or abdominal pain

It is not usual for the doctor to visit the elderly with: Poor mobility, joint pains or general debility

Test Results

Please telephone the surgery for test results after 11.00am. Blood and Urine tests generally take 3-5 working days; X-ray results can take 2-3 weeks.  Smears can take up to 4 weeks and the result will be posted to you.
