We operate an open access morning appointment system. Afternoon appointments will remain pre bookable, as will practice nurses appointments.
If you wish to be seen in the open access surgery, you must attended the surgery between 8.30am - 10.00am, the appointment book does not open until 8.30am. If you arrive after 10am, you will not be seen that day. PLEASE NOTE THE GPs OFTEN DO NOT START TILL 9am. When you attend the surgery, please give your name into reception and they will mark you as arrived. You cannot specify a particular GP, only if you prefer to see a male/female GP and if that option is availabe on that particular day. Please note: there may occasions when patients are seen out of time order due to clinical priority.
