It is possible to book appointments up to four weeks in advance by ringing Reception, preferably after 10.00am when the phones are less busy. You can also call into surgery or book your appointment on line (via our website) or by downloading the NHS APP to your smart phone or tablet, if booking appointments on line you must only book for the person who is seeing the clinician, not other family members (children). If you have more than one problem to discuss with a GP please ask Reception to book you a double appointment.
Some problems can be dealt with over the telephone. These are appropriate, for instance, if you need to discuss a problem with a Doctor but not necessarily face to face. To book, simply ask the Receptionist.

GP appointment? Don't need it? Cancel it!
We know people forget things, cancelling GP appointments being one of them. Please remember to cancel your appointment if you don't need it.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the surgery is contacted if you cannot attend a booked appointment, as soon as is reasonable, to allow this to be used by another patient. If you arrive late for a booked appointment – it will be at the doctors discretion as to whether you can be seen. If you repeatedly fail to cancel appointments you cannot attend, you may be removed from our Practice List.
