Guide to Reception and Surgery Times
Alternatives to a GP Appointment
It is sometimes difficult, especially in busy periods to get an appointment with a GP. In some cases, especially when it is a minor ailment, alternatives may be quicker and more appropriate. Often with self-limiting illness like the common cold, self-treatment or a visit to a pharmacy may be quicker.
If you are unsure about how urgently you should see a doctor you can ring NHS 111 by simply dialling 111 ANYTIME 365 days a year. If the surgery is closed they can also arrange you to be seen by a doctor or other health professional in a local assessment centre, at home or if appropriate at the hopsital.
Minor injuries may need to be seen at the hospital accident and emergency department but local minor injury units in your locality may be open and can deal with certain small injuries.
Appointments can be made in person, on-line (see Systm One logo below) or by telephone (call 344184). If you are unable to keep your appointment please let us know as soon as possible so we can use that time for somebody else.
We try to keep to appointment times and are sorry if sometimes you have to wait before you see the doctor or nurse. This is because some problems take longer to deal with - please bear with us. Monday is our busiest day of the week. If your problem is routine, you might find it easier to contact us later in the week.
If you have a preference of doctor we will try to accommodate you. However, it may not be possible to make an appointment with your doctor of choice for a variety of reasons. If this happens, an explanation will be given.
