To book a routine appointment please phone the surgery on 978 1231 or call in to the health centre. You can book a routine appointment up to 48 hours in advance. If your problem is more urgent you can receive advice and/or treatment sooner. This may not be with your preferred GP. You will find it easier if you phone after 11:00.
It is also possible to book routine appointments using Patient Partner, an automated telephone service in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The practice offers online appointment booking. We need to see some ID (preferable photo ID) and can then register you for SystmOnline. You can access this service from either the home page of this website or the link above.
Your GP or the reception team may offer you a telephone consultation instead of a face to face appointment. The doctors are often able to assist you in this way, saving you the time and effort it takes to come to the surgery. If you think that a telephone appointment might be right for you, please ask for one when you book.
If you have an urgent problem please phone the surgery on 978 1231 before 11:00 if possible. The receptionist will take your number and will arrange for an emergency care practitioner to call you back within the hour. Your needs will be assessed and you will be offered advice or a suitable appointment.
There are a number of minor illnesses that your local pharmacy can help you to manage. This is often easier and faster than contacting us for an appointment. If you pay for your prescriptions, the medications required for minor illness are usually cheaper than the prescription charge. If you don't pay for prescriptions, there is a scheme called Pharmacy First, under which you can get treatment without charge. You can find out more about Pharmacy First here.
