Surgery Hours & Clinics
We hold both 'Appointment' and 'Walk-in Appointment' surgeries (no pre-booking necessary- formerly known as 'open' surgeries) with Dr Martin Lockyer, Dr Karen Hill and Dr Vicki Gallagher. Until late 2012 Dr Gallagher's work is being undertaken by Dr Emily Boait.
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.
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 Tuesday 6.30pm- 7.45pm
Many problems may be dealt with by phone- the doctors are usually available for telephone consultations after morning surgery until 12.30pm.
All consultations are now stored on computer and can be accessed from both locations.
Reception is open 8.30 - 12.30 pm daily & in the afternoons as listed
* alternate weeks
The Antenatal clinic is held by the midwife, in association with Dr Lockyer, on Monday afternoon. First appointments are usually at 10-11 weeks, and are arranged by the midwife. To speak to the midwife click the link.
Post-natal appointments, with Dr Lockyer, are held on Thursday mornings.
The baby clinic is held on Thursday afternoons by Dr Hill and our Health Visitor, Hilary Parkman. See Child Immunisation Clinic for current immunisation recommendations.
A Chronic Disease Management clinic, with Dr Hill, is held on Wednesday afternoons when longer appointments are available to deal with conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Our nurse, Mandy Willmott, carries out much of the review work also.
All the doctors are fully trained in family planning. Patients requiring Emergency contraception should contact the doctor as soon as possible, including evenings and weekends. Appointments are available for IUD (coil) and Implant fittings.
Examinations for Insurance, Sports, Driving or other medicals are all by appointment. There is a charge for these which varies depending on the nature of the examination and report required.
Appointments are available for some minor surgery procedures. The clinic for treatment of warts and verruccas however is no longer available.
