The Practice works on an appointment only system – be prepared to be asked to return or please phone the reception team who will be more than happy to allocate you an appointment time. Urgent and emergency situations will be dealt with accordingly.

Please arrive early to your appointment, it may not be possible for you to be seen if you are late. Patients attending more than 10 minutes late will be automatically asked to reschedule. If you wish to reschedule or cancel an appointment, please let us know so that it can be offered to another patient.

Out of Hours

Patients with an urgent problem out of hours are asked to telephone 111, free of charge. Please click on the link for further information. In the event of a life threatening emergency dial 999.

Missed Appointments

Missed appointments waste practice time and prevent us from seeing patients. If you do not attend 3 appointments within a 3 month period you will receive a letter from the practice. You will not be able to book any further routine appointments without prior discussion with the Practice Manager. Continual non-attendance may risk removal from our practice list.
