Surgery Hours & Clinics

We hold both ‘Appointment’ and ‘Walk-in’ surgeries (no pre-booking necessary – formerly known as ‘open’ surgeries).

While we will try to accommodate requests to see a specific doctor at Walk-in surgeries, this cannot be guaranteed. Appointments for both doctors and nurses may be booked in person or by phone; appointments with doctors only can also be booked online (you need to register in person at the surgery for this service but it is a very simple and quick process).

Extended Hours

These are mainly intended for those who find difficulty getting to routine surgery times because of work commitments.

A limited number of appointments are now available Monday 6.30-7pm (nurse) and Tuesday 6.30pm- 7.30pm (GP and Healthcare Assistant).

Telephone Consultations

Some problems may be dealt with by phone and a few telephone consultations will be done after morning surgery until 12.30pm. In the event of emergencies these may be dealt with later the same day or carried over to the next working day. You will be informed in the event of a problem. If a telephone consultation is requested, please make sure you are available when a doctor calls back – 3 out of 4 calls from the doctor are not answered.

All consultations are now stored on computer.

Post-natal pre-bookable appointments are held during morning surgeries (not available at walk-in)
