The medical Centre is open between:
8.00am – 6.30pm Monday to Friday
We are now open and have a doctor’s surgery on Tuesday & Thursdays 6.30pm - 8.00pm and Saturdays 9.00am - 11.00am.
Please note that these appointments are strictly by pre-booked appointment only.
The Doctor will not be available to take messages, see urgent patients or make home visits during the above extended hours.
You can either:
Our peak period is 8.30am – 10.00am and we have additional staff and lines open during that period.
Both Reception and telephone lines are open continuously until 6.30pm each working day.
In order to do this you will need to complete an Application Form (please see below) which is available to download and return the completed form to Reception ALONG WITH photographic ID and recent proof of address – needed for data protection purposes.
A user name and password will be issued by the Practice – please allow at least one working day before you collect this from Reception.

If you need to speak to your Doctor on the telephone, please leave your contact number and brief details of the problem with a Receptionist, so that we can arrange for the Doctor to ring you back.
Please come to the surgery whenever possible. If you feel a visit is required, it helps the Doctor to plan the day effectively if you telephone before 11.00am.
There are occasions when it is not possible to see your own doctor. We will always offer you an alternative doctor who will have your complete medical information available.
Please help us to help you by considering seeing someone else.
You should only call 999 in an emergency – for example, when someone’s life is at risk or someone is seriously injured or critically ill.
Call 111 if you need medical help fast, but it’s not life-threatening – for example, if you:
For health needs that are not urgent, you should call your GP. If a health professional has given you a number to call for a particular condition, you should continue to use that number.
