Timetable

Open surgery will run from 09.00 to 10.30. As long as you come in before 10.30 you will be seen by a doctor.

Pre-bookable appointments are available on certain mornings.  Please contact reception if you wish to book an appointment.

Afternoon surgery is by appointment only from 15.30 to 17.30.

To ensure your safety our GPs and nurses only deal with one problem per consultation. To deal with more than one problem may cause a wrong diagnosis, wrong tests ordered, a failure to refer and will make the GP run late, which affects other patients.

Tell the GP all of your symptoms so that they can fully assess you and prioritise your treatment.

The GP may ask you to make a further appointment to discuss additional problems.
