What if my condition isn't in the list or I need to see a doctor?

If you contact the surgery, in person or via the telephone, we will be able to advise of the most suitable appointment, this may require a triage telephone call with the doctor first, or an appointment in the near future.

One Problem Per Appointment

Following on from recent feedback we are trying to raise awareness across our group of surgeries of our one problem per appointment policy.  We politely ask patients to only discuss one problem per appointment.  This helps ensure clinics run to schedule and other patients aren't inconvenienced.  If you need an additional appointment to discuss further problems, please ask at main reception.

Longer appointments, based on clinical need are available on request, these will be triaged before they can be booked.

Telephone Availability

If you would like to speak with a GP via the telephone, please ask the receptionist who will book a time for a GP to call you back.   Please note, our Doctors/Nurses will attempt to contact you after normal surgery.  Unanswered calls will result in the appointment being lost.

Book Appointments Online

We are pleased to provide patients with access to its Clinical System via a Secure Web Interface, so they can book appointments online.

To use Patient Access (EMIS) you will need a Practice ID number and an Access ID number which is obtained from the practice, and, in conjunction with a password, will be unique to you.
