Improved Access

The surgery works with a number of local practices to provide greater access to appointments and can offer appointments up to 20:00 Monday to Friday and on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Please be advised that availability is limited and will be by pre-booked appointment and urgent on the day only.

Access may not always be provided at this surgery and you may need to travel to an alternative practice. 

If no appointment is available you may be directed to alternative services such as NHS111 either online or via telephone

These appointments will not be available to book on line - therefore please speak to a member of our reception staff for further advice.

Please continue to give us your feedback via the comments and suggestions link.

When We Are Closed

If you need to see or speak to a doctor outside surgery opening times, please telephone NHS 111 where your call will be triaged. If you need to be seen, either at an out of hours centre or at home, your details will be transferred to the out of hours centre, then a member of the out of hours team will call you to arrange an appointment. Please note that if you are asked to attend the out of hours centre, you must provide your own transport.

The services of the out of hours centre are strictly limited to treating conditions which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency - chest pain and/or shortness of breath, stroke symptoms, severe allergic reaction or profuse bleeding would constitute an emergency.
