Telephone Patient Line 01642 851177
If you are registered you can make routine appointments on line or you can make an appointment with any of our clinical team either by telephone, or in person. Wherever possible book a routine appointment - we try to ensure that there is not too long a wait for the next available appointment with the clinician of your choice.
Please be aware that many of our GPs work part time so will not always be available on a day that is convenient for you. If the clinician of your choice is unavailable then you may wish to book with the one of the other team members.
If you feel your problem requires attention the same day, then you should consider the following options;
Nurse Practitioner Appointment
There is a nurse Practitioner with extended prescribing qualifications who is available at short notice to deal with acute illnesses, eg ear infections, respiratory infections, minor injuries etc. They may also be able to provide a prescription if required.
We would need to treat if clinically necessary eg post op wound infection
Urgent Doctor Appointment
The Duty Doctor will see patients requiring same day attention. These appointments are shorter than normal appointments. The GP will deal with the urgent problem only in this appointment. This allows us to meet the urgent need on the same day for you. Please remember that these appointments are to be used for urgent medical problems only.

Please telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit, wherever possible.
Our GP's will only visit housebound patients or those who are too ill to visit the practice.
Please note that the GP will ring you back to assess the need for a visit further before they come out to see you.
Your GP will ONLY visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it. They will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred to the community nursing team by your GP.
You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years old.
Telephone advice is available each day with all of our Healthcare Professionals, please be aware that you will be asked to tell the receptionist some detail about the nature of your call. Please telephone before 10.00am if you wish to speak to your own doctor.
If you ring after this time with a non urgent problem we will ask your GP to return the call the following day.
If you ring with an urgent problem the GP on call will ring you back.
It is really important the receptionist understands the nature of the call so that the urgency can be assessed.
Late For Your Appointment
Please attend your appointment on time, if you are late you may not be seen. If you are not seen you will not be able to rearrange your appointment until the next working day-except in the event of an medical emergency that requires immediate attention.
If you require an interpreter to attend with you when you see your Doctor please notify the receptionist and she will arrange this for you.

Persistent defaulters maybe removed from the list.
You can also complete our appointment cancellation notification request form. This can only be used if your appointment has been arranged for more than 24 hours in advance. (excluding weekends and public holidays). You can also text to cancel your appointment.
