*Pre-arranged appointments are available once a month on a Saturday morning. There is no walk in service and no telephone access.

We also offer pre-bookable and on the day extended access appointments on selected evenings during the week from 6.30 onwards.

Emergencies

In severe emergencies, e.g. chest pain or collapse, you should telephone 999 for an ambulance.

During surgery hours the message will tell you to press 1 for a medical emergency and the receptionists will deal with your problem immediately. The receptionist will ask you to call back if it is not an emergency to keep this line free.

If the surgery is closed the message will tell you what to do.

Between 6:30pm and 8am weekdays and at weekends we are covered by NHS 111.

You may be given advice, seen at the nearest out of hours centre or offered a home visit.

Telephone Appointments

Telephone appointments are available every day in the morning and afternoon. We also offer weekly pre-bookable telephone calls after 6.30pm.

Extended Access Appointments

Saturday morning appointments are held monthly at the surgery.

These are face to face appointments that are pre-booked with the practice as no ‘walk-in’ patients can be seen and there is no telephone access.

 

We also offer appointments weekly after 6.30pm.

If you haven’t booked an extended access appointment in advance the doctor on duty will not be able to see you and you will need to contact 111.

Please note that prescriptions, private letters and forms cannot be picked up during our Saturday morning surgeries or late evening surgeries . These surgeries are for pre-booked appointments ONLY and the reception desk is usually covered by a student.
