How to make an appointment
Most of our GP and Nurse appointments can be booked in advance. You can book a GP appointment up to 2 weeks in advance and a nurse appointment at least 4 weeks in advance.
If you have an urgent need to see a GP on the same day, we will always try and accommodate you but, on busy days, those patients with urgent medical needs take priority.
Making appointments by phone
Need to make an Appointment?
Under the current pandemic rules we have to triage ALL patient requests and we encourage patients not to attend the Practice. Help us to help you, by sending in an E-Consult request to the Practice. This is the quickest and most appropriate way to access your GP.
If you are unable to compete an E-Consultation form, then please call our Reception Team and they will take you through a set of questions similar to those from an E-Consultation form.
After you have made your request, it will be triaged by a Clinician, who may then contact you via telephone and if necessary, you will be invited in for a face to face consultation.
- Be on time for your appointment (you may not be seen if you arrive 10 minutes or more after your appointment time)
- Try to use your consultation for just one problem (we allot an average of 10 mins per GP appointment) – OR – tell the doctor/nurse at the start of your appointment if you have more than one problem and they will help you prioritise and decide if another appointment needs to be made
- Phone before 11am if you require a home visit
Reception is available for telephone contact: 8.30am – 6.30pm Monday to Friday.
We are closed on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Outside these hours we offer an emergency on call service. Click here for more information.
Who do I consult with?
There are a number of different types of clinical staff available at this practice – GPs, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants – and we appreciate it is not always clear who does what and when you need to see whom. We also have some community staff based in this building – Health Visitors, District Nurses and Midwives, for example.
Our Receptionists are trained to signpost you to the most appropriate appointment to meet your need and, in order to do this, they may need to ask you to give a brief indication of the nature of that need. For further details please click here.
Practice nurse appointments & clinics
The practice nurses specialise in looking after patients who have been diagnosed with long term conditions (e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, COPD etc) and provide a range of associated services including anticoagulation clinics, blood pressure monitoring, weight management, spirometry and ECGs. They can also provide family planning and contraception services, cervical smears, smoking cessation advice, health checks, immunisations and travel vaccinations and can deal with many general health questions and minor ailments.
However, not all nurses are trained to be able to manage all conditions. Some of the specialised clinics (e.g. anticoagulation) are only available after discussion with the nurse or doctor.

The new system with consulting through E-Consultation has drastically reduced our DNAs (did not attend appointments), therefore leaving more time for our patients to access their GP. This is one of the main benefits to using E-Consultations.
