Due to the Covid-19 pandemic when you contact the surgery to book an appointment with a Doctor you will be given a telephone consultation. If you are asked to attend the surgery a face covering must be worn. This request is to protect yourself and our staff.
You can make an appointment by attending the surgery or by telephone during normal surgery hours.
Alternatively you can register by visiting www.patient.co.uk to register for online access. Once registered you can book appointments, cancel appointments, order repeat medication or view a summary of your records 24/7.
Many hours of doctor’s and nursing time are wasted by patients not turning up, so if you cannot make an appointment please let us know and your appointment can be given to another patient.
Same day help for poorly children - If your child is unwell and you would like urgent advice then please contact the surgery and we will arrange for a clinician to speak to you and if necessary to see your child the same day. This could save an unnecessary trip to A&E or the Walk In Centre. Can we also make you aware of the Little Orange Book, which provides expert help for parents and carers on how to manage common problems in babies and small children - ask your GP or Practice Nurse for a copy.
