For non-urgent issues, please follow the guidelines below and choose the right service. An appointment may not be necessary.

This will help us to be more efficient by making an appointment available to you when you need it the most.

Children under the age of 16 years should be accompanied by an adult.

How To Book An Appointment?


Check Your Condition First

Condition Checker

Many conditions can be dealt with without the need to see your GP.

You can try a local pharmacy for advice about a range of conditions and we also have lots of self-help information. Please try this advice before contacting the Practice.

Pharmacy & Self-Care

Your pharmacy can advise you on minor illness without the need of an appointment. Please speak to a pharmacist first.


Help and support available from many National and Local Organisations

Visit our Self Help Zone


Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer clinical advice, over the counter medicines and their use, to effectively and safely manage a range of minor health concerns. They can also help you to decide whether you'll need to see a doctor. You don't need an appointment and you won't even be asked to make a purchase. Every pharmacy also has a private consultation area for you to talk about your symptoms in private if you prefer.

Urgent appointments for today or tomorrow

If you require an urgent appointment because you consider your condition to be an emergency, you will be able to see a doctor that same day but it may not be your usual doctor.

Please be prepared to give details of your problem to the support staff.

They will not be able to give you advice but may speak to the doctor so that they may decide on an appropriate time to see you. Usually, you will be asked to attend at the beginning or end of surgery and requested to wait.

Please call the surgery on: 01895 231925

Book a Routine Appointment

A routine appointment will be booked for 10 minutes. Appointments for special reasons, e.g. smears, minor operations, etc are allocated more time.  

If you feel you are going to need more than 10 minutes please inform the support staff when booking your appointment.

A routine appointment to see your own doctor will normally be offered within two days unless the doctor is very busy. However, if you are asked to attend one of our clinics they may be fully booked several weeks in advance. Please give as much notice as possible for a routine appointment as this will allow the support staff to offer a much wider choice of times.

Ways to book

  1. Download the NHS App
  2. Contact us Online - Book up to 4 weeks in advance.
  3. Telephone: 01895 231925
  4. Book in-person

Family Care

To maintain continuity of care it is best that each member of the family consults with the same doctor each time, therefore even though you are actually a patient of the practice you will be registered with an individual doctor who is taking on new patients at your time of registration.

You may be asked to see another doctor if you have a particular medical problem such as asthma or diabetes and female patients may request to see a female doctor for strictly female health problems.

If more than one member of your family wishes to be seen, please make a separate appointment for each of them.

Telephone Advice

If you feel you need advice on a medical problem you are welcome to telephone towards the end of morning surgery to speak to your usual doctor.

Sickness Certificates (Fit Notes)

Travel Vaccinations

Home Visits

If you need a home visit please telephone before 10am on weekdays.

We are always happy to visit those patients who are housebound through disability or illness, but sometimes home visits are requested by patients who could be brought to the surgery by car or otherwise.

Always try to attend the surgery if possible because we have better facilities for examination and special equipment if needed.

Children can almost always be brought to the surgery; they will come to no harm if they have a temperature. If they are unwell please tell the support staff and they will make sure they are examined by the doctor as soon as possible.

Life Threatening - Go to A&E

If you or someone you know has a life-threatening condition, such as loss of consciousness, a sudden confused state, chest pain, breathing difficulties etc, you should call 999.

Call 999 or go to A&E now if:

  • you or someone you know needs immediate help
  • you have seriously harmed yourself - for example, by taking a drug overdose

A mental health emergency should be taken as seriously as a medical emergency.
