The doctors and nurses work as a medical team and you may see any doctor of your choice. We suggest you stay with one doctor for any particular problem as this improves continuity of care.
Consultations are by appointment only from 08.30am – 11.30am and 1.30pm – 5.30pm. Surgeries are held at different times during the day. We also open on a Tuesday and Thursday morning from 7.15am for patients who work during the day.
If the problem is urgent please tell the receptionist so that you can be seen quickly. We have a limited number of on the day appointments and one GP will be on duty in the morning and afternoon to triage calls from patients to assess their needs quickly.
Practice Nurse Appointments
We have two practice nurses offering the full range of chronic disease management, health promotion, travel vaccinations and well person services.
Sometimes you may want advice on a health problem or medication and simply wish to speak to a doctor on the telephone. Generally GP’s will take calls in the morning, but please ask the receptionist for times when this is convenient.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer the appointment to another patient. Patients who do not attend three appointments over 6 months (or if the patient does not attend appointments more frequently), will be written to. They will be advised that this behaviour is unacceptable and, should it continue, the patient may be removed from the list. If a patient has genuine reasons why they have been unable to attend their appointments, this will be always be considered.
