We offer pre bookable appointments and book on the day appointments for all GPs. Pre bookable appointments are available up to 5 weeks in advance.
GP appointments are available to book on the telephone, in person or via the internet.
We also offer an urgent sit and wait appointment clinic at 16:30 everyday, these are for acute conditions which you feel must be seen that day. You MUST ring the Surgery to be booked into this urgent clinic. This clinic is ran by the GP's, we cannot guarantee which GP you will see, however you will be seen.
When you call for an appointment you will be asked to give a brief outline as to why an appointment is needed in accordance with the doctor's instructions . If appropriate and with your agreement a GP or Nurse Practitioner may be able to call you back and deal with your condition/query over the telephone, this can include the generation of a prescription which would be ready later the same day.
