Appointments can be booked by telephone using our automated service 24 hours a day or speaking to a receptionist, online or by calling into the surgery during office hours. You can pre-book some routine appointments with a GP in the mornings in advance. You will also be able to obtain an appointment within 48 hours with a GP or practice nurse within 24 hours. Nurse emergency system will still be available for more urgent cases. Telephone consultations are available with either a GP or nurses during the working day; ask reception for details. If you are unable to attend your appointment it is your responsibility to let us know as soon as possible so we may offer the appointment to another patient. You are at risk of being removed from the practice list if you continually miss appointments.
