Self Help
Consultations with Doctors and Practice Nurses are by appointment only. To make an appointment please telephone Appointments between 8am and 6pm on 01542 831555 (press 1 for appointments) or call in at Reception. You will be asked for a reason for your appointment in order that staff can make every effort to ensure you are given a convenient and early appointment.

Please remember that you may have to wait a little longer to see a specific Doctor but that you may make an appointment with any Doctor or Practice Nurse. If you wish to make appointments at specific times e.g. after school/work you may have longer to wait. Please be flexible and the Staff will endeavour to find the most suitable appointment time for you. Mondays are always very busy so if you feel that your problem can wait until later in the week we would appreciate it.

If unable to keep your appointment - please let us know as soon as possible to ensure that it can be offered to another patient.
Checking in for appointment
We use an automated system for checking in of your appointment.  The touch screen is to the left of the reception desk.  Please follow the questions asked and you will be guided on screen to the waiting area.
Minor Illness Clinic
The Minor Illness Clinic is a Nurse-led clinic which deals with urgent minor problems e.g. sore throats, skin rashes, and minor infections. Minor Illness appointments are given for next day. Under the guidance of the Minor Illness Nurse the Staff will ask for brief details of your problem for Minor Illness appointments to ensure that you are given an appropriate appointment. The Minor Illness Nurse may give health education advice or recommend prescriptions.
Medical Emergency Appointments
If you feel that your condition requires a medical emergency appointment please make this clear to the Staff. They will ask for full details of the problem and offer the next emergency slot.  In some instances the Emergency Care Practitioner or on-call GP may call you back.
