The surgery operates an advance access system providing better service and making good use of doctors and nurses time. The system offers “same day appointments” so you need to ring from 8am.
Appointments can be booked online if you have registered for Online Access. Please speak to a receptionist for more information
Some appointments are held back specifically for follow up consultations.
We also operate a triage system that allows our nurse to deal with minor ailments in the first instance. If she feels that a doctor’s intervention is required you will be referred to one.

You can enrol for this service if you are not already registered. please refer to the link entitled "How we handle and use your data" on the right of the page.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.
Please note that this is a teaching practice and as such we often have a registrar, medical students and nurses training alongside our GP's. If you have any objections to having one present during a consultation please inform the receptionist on duty before you see the doctor.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. If you are registered for text message reminders for your appointments, yo can reply to the text to do this.
