How to Make an Appointment
Our healthcare team comprises a wide range of professionals.
For day to day appointments you might be seen by either a nurse or a doctor depending on the nature of the problem. Our practice nurse team are specially trained to assess and treat a wide range of health conditions meaning that it will not always be necessary to see a doctor.

|On the Day||
A walk-in surgery is held between 9 – 10 Monday to Friday. Appointments will only be allocated to those arriving before 10am on a first come, first serve basis. As the demand for the walk-in clinic can be high, these appointments are for patients who cannot wait for the next bookable appointment. Patients with less urgent or on-going problems or those who wish to see a specific clinician are advised to book a routine appointment.
For patients with urgent problems arising after the walk in clinic, there are a limited number of urgent appointments available in the evening surgery.-

If you would prefer not to consult with our trainee doctor please inform your GP or Reception
