Opening Hours
The reception area is open from 8.00 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday. We are closed at weekends and on all public holidays.

Out of hours :If you or your family need urgent medical care when the surgery is closed, please phone 111. One surgery in the area is offering appointments at weekends. If you call 111 they should be able to direct you to the surgery offering this service.

 The best time to call the surgery for advice is after morning clinics, usually between 11.30 and 12 noon. If the doctor you wish to speak to is still busy they will call you back, provided you leave a phone number, preferably a land line. 


The surgery is able to accept new patients who live in our practice area. 


Every two months (but sometimes more often) the practice will be closed on  a Tuesday afternoon to allow protected staff training time. We need to  do this to keep up with changes and developments which affect the practice.  On these afternoons the phones will be switched off for up to five hours, reception may be closed, and any urgent needs will be directed to the out of hours service

The next date is in February 2018

Please try our automated arrivals screen next time you come in for an appointment?!

Our current registrar is  Dr Eylem Hannan, but she is going on maternity leave in the middle of March 2018... we wish her well with the new arrival

When We Are Closed

Please only use this service for problems which will not wait until the surgery is next open
If you or your family need urgent medical care when the surgery is closed, call the new 111 number if you feel your call is urgent but does not require an ambulance or a visit to A & E. It is to release more resources to deal with 999 calls but to help you more efficiently than calling the usual out of hours number. If you call the surgery nember out of hours you will be redirected to a message telling you to call 111.
If it is a medical emergency please call 999 for the emergency services.
You may visit the NHS Walk-in Centre on London Road (next to the BBC). This is a nurse-led drop in service offering health advice, information and treatment of minor ailments by experienced nurses and advisors. It is open 365 days a year from 7am to 9pm.
Your local pharmacy can also offer you advice and treatment if required, for a range of minor ailments. Under the Pharmacy First scheme, if you are exempt from prescription charges you will be able to get the same medications the GP would prescribe free of charge for head-lice, sore throat, earache, teething pain and pain relief for toothache, and includes paracetamol for children.
To access the service go to your local Pharmacy First pharmacist (look out for posters, leaflets and window stickers)

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
