How to book an appointment with the Doctor..
Due to an increase in demand for Doctors appointments we have changed our system with a different 'mix' of appointments to try and accommodate more patients. The majority of Doctors appointments are now available to 'book on the day.' There are routine, urgent and also telephone appointments with the GP. This should help to ensure you can be seen if you are unwell. Please note that the receptionist may ask for a brief outline of the problem and this is to make sure we can direct you to the best person to deal with the problem. This may be a Doctor or it could be the Nurse or even your local pharmacy?
There are a limited amount of routine appointments to book in advance.
How to book: Telephone the surgery at 8am. Why not sign up for online access so you can book your own appointment online from 8am on the day, or if you live nearby - you could come to the surgery at 8am and book to come back and see the GP later.

Are you due for cervical screening?...
Have you been sent a letter inviting you for cervical screening? There has been a lot of media attention recently regarding a low uptake of screening - especially in younger patients. Please be aware that screening is available to women aged 24-65 and helps to detect any possible abnormalities at an early stage. If you have had an invite then please call the surgery and book an appointment with our Practice Nurse.
