How to book an appointment

Consultations are face to face appointments or telephone appointments and are normally booked at 10 minute intervals. Every effort will be made for you to see the doctor of your choice when you attend, although this is not always possible.

An appointment can be booked by:

  1. Telephoning the surgery on 01253 951955
  2. Calling in to the surgery

There is much pressure placed on the appointment system. Unfortunately some appointments are wasted due to patients not attending. We recognise that patients have a right to see a health care professional within 48 hours from request. In return we would remind you that it is your responsibility to inform the practice if you are unable to keep that appointment.

Reception staff are available to speak to you from 8.00am – 6.30pm Monday to Friday, face to face or via the telephone and can advise you with regard to accessing services.
