Appointments

Opening hours

The surgery’s core opening hours for appointments are Monday to Friday 8:30am to 6:00pm but occasionally we have morning surgeries starting at 8am.
Usually every other Saturday there is a surgery from 8.30am – 11.30am.

There are additional surgeries one day a week offering appointments from 7am and evening appointments to 8.15pm. The days vary so please contact reception for the latest information.

Appointments

All consultations are by an appointment system. Appointments can be made by telephone, calling in at the surgery or via the SystmOnline system (requires a login – available from reception).

Urgent cases and emergencies will always be seen. You can see any one of the doctors, although it is better for you to see the same doctor each time you attend. There may be times when your usual doctor is not available, due to holidays, study leave, teaching or illness. On these occasions patients will be seen by another doctor. If the problem is not urgent then you can make an appointment with their usual doctor when they return.

Cancelling an appointment

A considerable amount of surgery time is wasted by people either failing to inform us that they are unable to keep an appointment or giving us so little notice that the appointment cannot be re-allocated. Please let us know as far in advance as possible if you cannot keep an appointment – it will always be of use to someone else. Should you fail to attend for 3 appointments in a 12 month period you will be classed as a frequent offender and may be asked to leave the practice.
