The practice offers a variety of appointments in the mornings, afternoons and evenings. A proportion of our appointments are available to book 1 week in advance, the remainder are telephone consultations.
We hope that this way of working provides the choices for our patients. We will always endeavour to offer patients an appointment with the clinician of their choice but this may not be always possible.
Appointments may be booked either by:-
- Telephone – Our appointment lines are open from 08:00 to 18.30 Monday to Friday.
- Internet – via the link at the top of this page
- In person – By coming into reception during regular opening hours.
Length of Appointment
Please note all appointments are for 10 minutes. If you require more time with the doctor, or if you have more than one problem to discuss, please inform the receptionist when booking the appointment. The emergency appointments are for 5 minutes only.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. We have now introduced text reminder service. The service enables you to cancel your appointment by replying “cancel” to the text. Please ensure we have your correct mobile number on our records.
We have now introduced text reminder services to our patients which mean we will send you a text to remind you if you have an appointment booked. Please make sure that we have your up to date mobile number.
