Please note: Due to the COVID19 situation, booking online appointments has temporarily been suspended. Please do not attend the surgery unless you have been invited by us to attend an appointment
Please note you may be asked for a brief indication of your symptoms in order to help you to see the most appropriate member of our Clinical team.
Due to the current COVID19 situation, we kindly ask our patients to please do not attend the surgery unless you have been invited by us.
To book an appointment, you will first be offered a triage call with a GP, which could result in a face to face consultation at the surgery at a specific time; alternatively you may be booked in to see one of our Advanced Nurse Practitioners who are each trained in various areas of medicine.
There are also a number of self-help options available for common conditions (including self directed referral for a range of common conditions). These are described in more detail in the self help section of this website. If in doubt, speak to a member of our reception team.
Please sign up to text reminders with a mobile number when booking an appointment. An appointment text reminder will be sent to your mobile, please reply ‘CANCEL’ if you are unable to attend. This will automatically cancel your appointment. Please take note that by cancelling your appointment well ahead of time it then enables another patient, who may have been waiting a significant amount of time to see a clinician, to book into it
Long Term Condition Synchronisation
If you have several long term conditions we can synchronise your review appointments so that you make a minimum number of visits to the surgery.
