Appointments

Open Surgery
Open surgery is available every day - Monday to Friday, from 8.30 am to 10.15 am
This operates on a first come first seen basis. As long as you arrive before 10:15 am you will be seen by the Doctor.

General Appointments
Please attend or telephone the surgery any time during working hours to make an appointment to see the doctor, nurse or other member of our clinical team. Please arrive promptly for your appointment - be on time!
If you are more than 10 minutes late to your appointment you will be asked to re-book. Every Tuesday the surgery is open till 7:30pm we hope this will help patients that work. You will need to book these appointments in advance.

Urgent Appointments
If you require an appointment for a problem that you feel will not wait until the next available routine appointment, you will be given a time to attend - usually at the end of morning surgery or at the beginning of afternoon surgery. Please note that you may have to wait longer than usual.

Cancelling Appointments
If you are not able to make your appointment, please cancel this as soon as possible to enable others to benefit from it.

Student Appointments
For training purposes ALL appointments with the medical student must be for a new problem.
i.e. Not something you have seen the Doctor about before. The Receptionist will ask you this question when you make the appointment. The Doctor is always present at a student appointment and a student appointment will usually take about 20 minutes.

Nurse Appointments
Please do not ask the Nurse to do any 'extras' as she will only see you for what was requested at the time the appointment was made. Please make another appointment if you wish to see her about something else. This will help keep clinics running on time and make sure patients are not kept waiting.
