Our office is open 8.30 am to 5.30 pm, Monday to Friday. Please telephone the surgery as early as possible to make appointments.
Our reception team always offered the next available appointment with the doctors of your choice, although this may not be on the day you have requested. If you are experiencing an emergency we will always try to accommodate you. Please be sure to contact the clinic to make a booking as we are unable to facilitate walk in appointments.
Standard appointments are booked at 15 minute intervals. If you have multiple or complex issues to discuss with your doctor, please let reception know when booking your appointment so that adequate time can be allocated with your doctor. Patients are requested to book one 15 minute appointment per person.
We endeavour to run on time; however this is not always possible due to emergencies etc. Reception staff can inform you of expected wait times either when you arrive, or if you phone prior to your appointment.
Certain appointments require confirmation 24 hour prior, if appointments cannot be confirmed they may be cancelled. We do have a SMS reminder system and ask that you respond to this.
Patients who fail to attend an appointment without notifying reception will be charged a non-attendance fee, which will be payable prior to booking another appointment.
