Appointments

If you require an appointment or wish to talk to a medical professional please DO NOT come to the surgery to make it. Please call the surgery first, or, alternatively use eConsult.

We are operating a same day phone triage service and will see if we can manage your health need over the phone.   If clinically necessary, we will arrange to see you face to face at the surgery later in the day. There will be significant pressures on the phones but we will get to you as soon as we can. 

Please note online booking of appointments has been withdrawn.
