Appointments

All consultations with a doctor or nurse are arranged strictly by appointment only, except in an emergency. We want you to see the doctor of your choice but, in an emergency, this may not always be possible. An urgent appointment will always be available on the day with the duty doctor.

  • 08.30 and 18:00 Daily

Please do not ‘store-up’ problems for one consultation slot. If you think your problem will need extra time please ask reception for a longer appointment.

Please inform reception if you are feeling unwell in the waiting area or if you have a sick or ill child with you.

Appointments with a Practice Nurse or Healthcare Assistant
