The clinicians see their patients by appointment. We have a mixed clinical team made up of GPs, Nurse Practitioners, Paramedics, Clinical Pharmacist, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants as well as Musculoskeletal Assessment Physiotherapists. To book an appointment please call 01322 862121, book online if registered for this or by using the myGP app or NHS app. Unfortunately, under current restrictions appointments cannot be made in person at the surgery.
There are appointments available at each session that can be booked up to four weeks in advance for routine medical issues. The remaining appointments are released on the day to accommodate for more immediate problems. If you require advice or an appointment due to sudden illness and the surgery is fully booked, you may be offered an assessment triage telephone consultation. The Clinician will phone you during surgery time to discuss your issue and make an appropriate decision about how to manage your illness.
From Monday 8th February, we will changing slightly the way we book 'on the day' appointments. Once all of the morning slots have been booked, the afternoon slots will be released and will be bookable. Please ensure you do not phone too late in the day if you feel you need to be seen on the day as all of the slots may have gone. If your problem can wait, please book a routine prebookable appointment as these are much easier to book. 'On the day' appointments are for patients who are acutely unwell and cannot wait for a routine prebookable appointment.
From the 1st March 2021, our phone lines will be open from 8am through until 6.30pm each day. Our doors will still open at 8.30am and there will still be lunchtime closures during the week. See Surgery Times for more detailed information.
