Access to Appointments

Our appointment line is open from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. 

When making an appointment, please be prepared to provide a brief summary of your condition, and help us to answer patient calls as quickly as possible by keeping the discussion to the point. This helps us to make sure you are seen by the most appropriate person, and may shorten the length of time you wait for an appointment.

Our phone lines are very busy first thing in the morning, so if you do not need to be seen on the day, please consider calling after 9:30am.

We offer both face-to-face consultations and telephone consultations. Our receptionists will help you to get the most appropriate appointment.

We also have a range of healthcare professionals working in the practice:

  • General Practitioners (doctors)
  • Advanced Nurse Practitioner
  • Practice Nurses
  • Pharmacist
  • Healthcare Assistant.

We have provided training to the reception team to ensure that calls are directed to the most appropriate healthcare professional. We appreciate that patients may not be used to seeing professionals other than their own doctor, but all of our team are experienced and highly trained in their areas of expertise and we hope patients will appreciate this more modern approach to primary care as they get to know our team. 

There are some services which are better undertaken by other professionals in the community. Our staff may direct you to a pharmacist, optician, or dentist instead of attending the surgery. Often these professionals can see you more quickly than waiting to be seen in the surgery, or have specialist equipment that is not available in the practice.

By signposting patients with certain conditions to other, more appropriate services, we hope to be able to provide better access to our services for those who need them.
