Appointments - 01656 867900

We all know how important it is for you to be able to contact your local surgery. But we are all aware that the demands on the NHS are enormous. We want to be available to you when you need us to be, but we would ask for your patience when contacting us. We deal with literally hundreds of phone calls every day, and each one is important. Please help us to help you.

Historically we have advised calling at 8am to book an appointment, which caused significant backlog first thing each day. You will be pleased to know that you can now call us at anytime during our opening hours to book an appropriate appointment.

Clearly we have a finite number of appointments available with our Doctors and nurses and these are bookable by phone 01656 867900. The appointment system has recently changed in order to allow a patients to pre-book appointments with a GP up to four weeks' in advance. We also plan to re-introduce online bookings shortly, through both SurgeryApp and MyHealthOnline.

Our reception team are trained to ask you for the reason for your call. Please provide our team with this information as it will help us to direct your enquiry to the most appropriate service, All urgent requests will be triaged by our Doctors and nurses. Further updates to follow - please see our Blog section.

We ask that any requests for home visits to housebound patients are phoned through to the surgery by 10.30 am wherever possible, please.

Mobile Phone

Out of hours - Dial 111

If you have an urgent medical problem that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, you should phone 111. However, for any life threatening emergencies such as chest pain, torrential bleeding, severe breathlessness, you should call 999 in the usual way.
