The Practice operates on a booked appointment basis and a variety of appointments are available in the morning and afternoon with both doctors and nurses.
Routine appointments can be made both by telephone and in person during the hours of 9.30am-12.30pm and 2.00pm-5.30pm
Monday to Friday. Routine appointments can be made up to four weeks in advance, enabling us to offer you a time more suitable to your requirements. Next day appointments are available from 9.30am each day.
Emergency Triage is also available for those in need of urgent treatment & these can be accessed both in person & via telephone from 8.30am-10.00am daily.
From time to time you may need to consult with the doctor or nurse without the need to see them face to face, for this reason the Practice offers specific telephone appointments each day.
These appointments are very popular and are offered solely on a first come first served basis.
Patients are asked to contact the Practice at 9.30am & leave a preferred contact number on which to receive a return call.
Please note - when requesting a telephone call from the Practice, please ensure that you are available when the doctor or nurse returns your call. Unfortunately we are unable to return any missed calls & you will be asked to follow the same procedure to make a call-back request on another day.
Patients or their carer are requested to contact the Practice before 10.30am on the day a visit is required.
Please give the Receptionist as much information as possible to allow the doctor to allocate priority for home visits in the most efficient way.
Please only request a home visit if absolutely necessary - remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time it takes to do a home visit.
Repeat prescriptions are available by writing or calling at the Practice or by telephone using the automated repeat prescription line.
Simply contact the Practice on the usual number and follow the simple instructions given.
The repeat prescription line is open Monday - Friday 8.30am-12.15pm and 2.00pm-4.30pm.
Prescriptions can also be ordered via email using the following address:
