We pre book 4 appointments per surgery up to a month in advance. For appointments to be booked on the day please ring from 8.00 am. Please be patient as the phone lines can be busy at that time but be assured your call will be answered.
Appointments can be made by telephoning the surgery (01772 325110) or by calling at reception. We have a system which means we can offer an appointment on the day of contact. We only pre book a few appointments in advance. Please contact the receptionists should you need further clarification.
The appointment times are 10 minutes per patient. If more than one member of the family needs to be seen, please make separate appointments for each member of the family. Please note children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult. It would be helpful if you could cancel any appointments you no longer require. You can do this using our Cancel Appointments form, or simply contacting the Practice.
We try to ensure that patients are given appointments with a Doctor or Health Care Professional within 24 to 48 hours of the request.
If you need an emergency appointment, please ring 01772 325110. The receptionist will ask you for details of the problem, as instructed by the Doctors. This is to assist the Doctors to assess the urgency of each case.
We now offer the Contraceptive Implant at the surgery as part of the LARC Service. LARC (long-acting reversible contraception) are methods of contraception you do not have to think about every day. A flexible rod is fitted just under the skin in the upper arm. It lasts for up to 3 years and is over 99% effective. Please call the surgery on 01772 325110 to book an appointment with our Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Gaynor, to have this fitted.
