Urgent Appointment

Urgent appointments are available on the same day and are triaged (under the instruction of the doctors) by our friendly highly trained reception team and are based on medical need.

If you have an urgent medical problem, please call at 8am for a same day appointment. Please note as this is an on-the-day service you must be available to attend when the clinician is available. 

Routine Appointment

Routine non-urgent GP appointments have an average waiting time of one to two weeks. Once you have a routine appointment arranged you have the option of joining the cancellation list if you wish, you may be contacted at short notice to attend, please ask the receptionist for more details. 

All GP/Nurse appointments are 10-15 minutes in duration, please consider this when you attend, multiple health concerns cannot be accommodated in a single appointment. Your allotted time is strictly for the named patient booked into the appointment.

Please arrive in good time to allow for parking and check in. If you are late for your appointment, you may not be seen and will be asked to reschedule. Missed appoinments are recorded and repeated episodes may result in removal from our practice list. 

You must arrive prior to your appointment time. If you are late, you may not be seen. You may only be 5 minutes late, but in fact this is 50% of your allocated slot.

Non NHS Medical Requests

Please be aware that medicals for insurance companies/power of attorney/HGV licences/summer camp/adventure and leisure pursuits etc. are private medicals and will be chargeable, or asked to attend a private provider to have these meduicals carried out. Please speak to reception prior to booking a GP appointment as the GP will need to see the paperwork and asses if they have capacity to accomodate the request and how long an appointment needs to be as usually a routine 10 minute appointment is insufficient.
