All appointment requests for a GP are currently initially telephone appointments. If the GP then feels that you need to be seen face to face, you will given a further appointment
All our GP appointments are for ten minutes, and are for one person and preferably for one problem. You may book an appointment by phone, or by calling in, or on the internet if you have registered to do this. Appointments with the doctor are generally available up to four weeks ahead. If your preferred or usual doctor is not available for the time at which you would wish to come, you may be offered an appointment with another GP.
Patients with an urgent medical problem will be given an appointment with the duty doctor for that session. These appointments should only be used for problems that will not wait and only for that problem.
Please note that several of our GPs work part-time so may not be available when you wish to come. Please help our staff to help you by seeing another doctor if that is the case.
If you unable to attend for an appointment, please remember to let us know so that we can make it available to somebody else.
Appointments may be booked with the practice nurses for chronic disease checks, routine monitoring of blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, asthma and those patients that have had a stroke, NHS Health checks, immunisations, travel injections, routine smear tests, wound dressing and stitch removal, ear syringing, dietary advice and new patient checks. Our phlebotomist will see patients who require a blood test.
Currently, under advice from the NHS we do not do ear syringing .

The best time to call the surgery for advice is after 9.30am and usually before 11.30am. If the doctor you wish to speak to is busy they will call you back, provided you leave a phone number, usually at the end of a clinic. Please remember that there are a limited number of telephone appointments available.
We suggest that you do not phone the surgery on a Monday morning before 11am unless it is essential, as the phone lines are always exremely busy on Monday mornings.
