attendance at surgeries

Patients should telephone for an appointment to be seen at the surgery during normal opening hours.

The surgery operates a triage system for all requests for emergency and same-day appointments.  The triage nurse will log the call and ask for details of the problem.  Using strict protocols, agreed by the doctors, the triage nurse decides on the most appropriate course of action.  This may be advice over the telephone, a clinic appointment for that day, an appointment in a specialist clinic, a routine appointment or an appointment in the duty doctor's surgery that day.

Appointments can be made 4 weeks in advance.

Telephone Calls and email enquiries

If you need to speak to your GP on a non-urgent or routine matter please ring the surgery.  The call may be put through if the GP is not actually involved in a consultation, or your details will be taken and given to the GP requested for him/her to ring when next available.  If this is the case the receptionist will inform you when you can expect a call back or they may ask you to ring in on another day.

You may also email your routine enquiry which will then be forwarded to the GP.  Email us at
