DURING THE CURRENT COVID 19 SITUATION THE DOCTORS WILL BE OPERATING MAINLY TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS.

PLEASE ALSO USE ECONSULT IF YOU NEED TO CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR,DETAILS ARE ON OUR HOME PAGE.
The doctors operate both book on the day and pre booked appointment surgeries. To see them during a book on the day surgery you need to phone in first to get an approximate time. We do stress however that these are only approximate times as it is difficult to estimate the amount of time each patient may take when consulting the doctor.
Pre booked appointments may be booked in advance.
Extended Hours Surgeries
This practice offers extended hours surgeries on Tuesday evenings . These appoinmtents need to be booked in advance.
If you are over 75 years and have not been seen by a doctor in the last year you will be entitled to an over 75 check.
If you are between 16-74years and have not been seen by a doctor in the last 3years you will be entitled to a health check.
Please ask to be added to the doctors or nurses phone list and they will call back after their clinics.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.
Nurse Practitioner's have additional training and are able to diagnose, treat, manage illness and disease. They are also able to prescribe some medications.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
