Appointments

Our Practice opening times are 8.00am – 6.30pm Monday to Friday and we do not close for lunch. There is a private carpark in our grounds but space is limited and offered on a first come first served basis.

Our Nurses are available for test results between 12 noon – 1.00pm every day unless off work. 

We offer a range of appointments from booked in advance, open surgery (acute problems that need attention within 24hrs), urgent appointments and telephone appointments. 

Please note that if you require an urgent or open surgery appointment you will be asked about the nature of your problem by Reception Staff. 

This may be construed as an intrusion of privacy, but this is absolutely not the case or intention, and the reason we need to ask questions is to ensure that you get the most appropriate appointment in the most appropriate timeframe. 

It could be that you need an ambulance instead, or you may be better off attending Accident & Emergency or the Minor Injuries Unit. 

On the other end of the scale, what is classed as urgent by a patient may not necessarily be a clinical emergency and therefore staff have to triage patients at the point of contact for appointments so that ALL patients have access to the correct appointment for them.
