Surgeries are held each day, except Sunday and public holidays. Patients with urgent medical needs will be seen on the same day, but you may be unable to see the doctor of your choice. Please only ask to see a GP the same day if you have an urgent need to do so. Alternatively a telephone call from a GP may be enough to assist you. Fitness to work notes, repeat prescription requests are not generally considered to be needing urgent GP appointments as these matters can be dealt with in advance under normal circumstances. If you are asking for an appointment in connection with these please tell the receptionist, who may be able to arrange alternative assistance for you.
Appointments can be made either by telephoning (01983) 817200 or calling in when the surgery is open. If you are unable to keep an appointment, it is very important to let us know as soon as possible so that the appointment may be given to another patient. If you wish to cancel an appointment more than 24 hours in advance you can call the surgery and leave a message by pressing option 6. When requesting an appointment or home visit, please give the receptionist the name of your preferred doctor. We cannot always guarantee that you will see your preferred GP but will generally try to make this possible for you.
You can now order your repeat prescription items and book appointments via SystmOnline Services.
To register, simply come in to reception with 2 forms of ID and fill out a short application. One form of ID must be either a current passport or photo driving licence (if you don't have either then your birth certificate), and the other ID needs to be a utility bill or bank statement no older than 3 months old, or this year's council tax bill.
