Appointments

You can make an appointment at the surgery by telephoning (01761-412141), during the surgery opening  hours, you can also make an appointment on-line.  Please help us by telephoning as early as possible and being flexible with your appointment time. 

If you have 2 or 3 problems to discuss, please ask for a 20 minute appointment.  Always make a separate appointment for each member of  the family. We try to work to time please be patient if we are delayed.

You are welcome to see any of the doctors, not just the one with whom you are registered. We prefer you, however, to get to know one of us as this helps us to give you better continuity of care.  If the problem is urgent and your own doctor is unavailable because he or she is fully booked or away on a course or holiday, the receptionist will arrange the earliest convenient appointment with the doctor of your choice.

Several appointments are saved each evening for emergencies. Please only ask for these if your problem is really MEDICALLY URGENT and cannot wait.

You may be asked by one of our trained receptionists for some information about your problem.  This will be treated as confidential and allows the doctor to judge the urgency of the call.  It helps the doctor to help you if he can examine you in a quiet room with radio and television turned off. The doctor may want to wash his hands after examining you; it is helpful if a clean towel is provided.


Minor illness is for any ONE problem. If you have a list of several problems please book a routine longer appointment.

Why is my doctor always running late?

IF YOU CANNOT KEEP YOUR APPOINTMENT, PLEASE LET US KNOW SO IT CAN BE USED FOR ANOTHER PATIENT
