Appointments
Morning Surgeries start at 8:30am and afternoon surgeries at 2.00pm.  Appointments can be made by booking at reception, calling the surgery on 01598 753226 or via our online appointment booking system. Appointments are at ten minute intervals.

Telephone Advice
Sometimes a telephone call will avoid the need for a consultation. If you wish to speak to a doctor, please ask the receptionist to request that the doctor calls you back. It would be helpful if you could indicate the degree of urgency.

Cancelling your Appointment
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.
