All consultations are by appointment, except in an emergency. Appointments can be made by telephoning 01582 399444 or in person during surgery hours. It is very helpful if you can provide our receptionist with information regarding the nature of your problem, so that you can be given an appointment with the member of staff most able to deal promptly with your needs.
Of course you are under no obligation to divulge medical information to reception staff, but be assured that they are bound to keep such information confidential and use it only to provide you with an appropriate appointment.
If you are unable to attend an appointment, please cancel it as soon as possible so that another patient can be seen. Patients who arrive more than ten minutes late for their appointment will not be seen, as this would cause the doctor or nurse to run late.
Same Day Appointments
Please phone us as soon as possible after 8am if you require a same-day appointment. We have a team of very experienced nurses specialising in minor illness, who offer same-day appointments. They can diagnose, advise you on self-care, and issue a prescription if needed. We also have some doctors' appointments available on the day.
