GP consultations are held every morning and afternoon, except Wednesday afternoon. We offer a range of open and appointment surgeries. An additional clinic is held on a Monday evening for people who have difficulty getting to the practice during normal working hours.
- Open Surgery - if you need to see a doctor about an urgent matter then a doctor will see you in open surgery. All patients will be seen in the order that they arrive. If you are being seen for a routine review, then it is better to book an appointment.
- Appointments - to book an appointment, please telephone or call at the surgery between 08:00 – 18:00. The appointment will normally be for 10 minutes. If you feel that you require more time then please inform the receptionist.
Telephone Consultations and Minor Illness
There will be times when you have a problem which you feel could be dealt with by speaking to a doctor or practice nurse on the telephone. The doctors and nurse try to make themselves available from 11:30 to 12:00 daily. If the doctor is busy with patients, they will call you back when they have finished their surgery.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
