Appointments

Consultations at the surgery are by appointment only and may be made in advance. Appointments may be made by telephoning 01922 477226, booking online appointments or by attending the surgery.

Patients may see the doctor of their choice by appointment, though there may be a delay if you wish to see a specific doctor.

Patients requesting a same-day appointment for a problem that is considered urgent will be offered an appointment with the first available doctor.

We have an appointment text reminder service, please be sure to check with reception that we have an updated mobile number, thank you.

On days where the demand for same-day appointments is high a considerable wait may be unavoidable.

When you and your GP agree you need a referral to a specialist, Choose and Book shows your GP which locations provide appropriate treatment, and you can choose a date and time to suit you.
