Appointments

bpTelephone lines and surgery are open from 8.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday. For appointments to see the doctor or nurse, please call at our reception or telephone 01642 511660. We operate an Advanced Access System which enables us to offer all patients an appointment with a health professional within 24 hours and with a general medical practitioner within 48 hours.

 Although we will try to offer patients an appointment with the doctor of their choice this may not always be possible, in which case an explanation will be given. Generally there are a number of pre-bookable appointments available with each doctor on a daily basis and all nurse practitioner and practice nurse appointments can be booked in advance.

We also offer extended hours for patients who cannot attend during normal surgery hours because of work commitments or other reasons. For more information or to pre book an appointment please contact reception.

In an average month the surgery offers over 6,000 doctor or nurse appointments of which approx 300 are missed due to patients not attending. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to keep an appointment so that the time may be utilised by others.

Please remember that an appointment is for one person only and a separate appointment should be made for any other persons attending for consultation.
