All consultations with a doctor or nurse are arranged strictly by appointment only, except in an emergency. We want you to see the doctor of your choice but, in an emergency, this may not always be possible. An urgent appointment will always available on the day with the duty doctor.
To make an appointment telephone 01803 862671 or visit the surgery between:-
- 08.00 and 19:30 Monday - Thursday
- 08:00 and 18:30 Friday
- Telephone lines are open 08:30 - 18:00 every weekday.
Weekend appointments are not available.
Please do not ‘store-up’ problems for one consultation slot. If you think your problem will need extra time please ask reception for a longer appointment.
Please inform reception if you are feeling unwell in the waiting area or if you have a sick or ill child with you.
Rather than attending the surgery it may be better for you to talk to your doctor on the telephone in the first instance. Telephone the surgery 01803 862671 and ask the receptionist to arrange for a telephone consultation with your doctor.
