Appointments

Appointments may be made by telephoning 01206 573605 or by calling at the surgery. Routine appointments may be made one month in advance, which will enable us to offer you an appointment at a time more suitable to your requirements. If you cannot keep an appointment, please inform us as soon as possible as this will assist in over-subscribed situations.

Evening Surgeries

Appointments with GPs in evening surgery are pre-bookable. Surgeries normally run from  4.00 to 6.30pm and consist of 10-minute appointments. If you have a particularly difficult problem, please make a double appointment. If you are late for your appointment, the GP may not be able to see you as other patients will be waiting.

Extended Opening

All of our GPs and some of our nurses participate on a rota basis in offering additional  pre-booked appointments outside of normal surgery hours, ie from 6.30 to 7.10pm. This is usually on a Monday evening and alternative Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Sometimes this does vary due to Bank Holidays or other commitments. During this time, access to the surgery is via an intercom system for those patients with appointments. The surgery is not open for other purposes at that time.

Emergencies

If you are confronted by a serious problem such as severe chest pain or profuse bleeding call an ambulance (tel 999) before calling the surgery.

Open Access Surgeries

Our GPs’ morning surgeries are open access and start at 8.30am. These are not pre-bookable. Anyone who turns up before 10.00am will be seen, but remember: these surgeries are very popular and sometimes there can be a wait. It does, however, mean that you can get to see a GP at short notice.
