Please book appointments according to the above. Your assistance with this helps us run on time and adds to the comfort of all patients waiting times.
If you require a combined nurse and doctor appointment e.g., removals, iron infusions, dressings, diabetes review, ECG, spirometry, health assessments, drivers licence renewal, immunisations, vaccines, or if you are unsure please contact the practice by phone to arrange. We are unable to book combined appointments online.

Where possible please ring ahead. You may need to go immediately to the emergency department by ambulance instead of taking the RISK of driving to the practice.
To save you waiting we suggest you call reception to check if your doctor is running on time.
We do try to give as much time as necessary to each patient depending on their health issues and as a result, delays are sometimes unavoidable.
We do reserve time for the unexpected or medically urgent issues; however occasionally extra time will still be required for such matters.
Appointments are required for all scripts as a medical review is required.
Your pharmacist may supply your medication on a script owing basis.
