We offer routine appointments up to 14 days in advance. Our clinics normally operate on weekdays between 8.30am and 11.50am. Afternoon clinics for GP's generally run from 3.00pm to 5.30pm. Nurse clinics operate between 8.30am and 12:30pm & 1.30pm and 6.00pm - please check with reception for specific clinics.
Appointments can be booked in person at reception, by calling the main surgery number: 02392 370422 between the hours of 08:00am and 18:30pm Monday to Friday, by using the Automated Patient Partner Telephone Booking system or by logging into the Online system (you will need to register to use this service).
We operate a Telephone Triage system each weekday morning. You will be asked by the receptionist to provide a brief description of the problem for which you need an appointment. Your name will then be added to a list for a GP or a Nurse Practitioner to call you back to assess the most appropriate person for you to see and whether it is appropriate for you to be seen on the day. You may be given advice over the telephone, an appointment to see a Nurse Practitioner or a GP, or you may be contacted by another clinician - i.e. a physiotherapist, if your problem is of a muscular skeletal nature.
