Please make it clear if your problem needs urgent attention, we request that making routine enquiries and non-urgent appointments is left till after 11.30am.

Remember you can book appointments online by registering for SystmOnline (contact reception for more details), click HERE to log in. We try to make sure you see the doctor of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor.

If you are too ill to come to the surgery and you require a visit at home, please call the surgery before 10am. Home visits take up much more of a doctor’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen. You may be telephoned back by a clinician before a visit is made to ascertain the visit is necessary – home visits are always done at the clinical discretion of the clinician.
