Appointments & New Patients

Appointments can be made in advance and on the day.  For an on the day appointment please call the surgery as early as possible after 8am.  If you contact the surgery to make an emergency appointment the reception staff may ask questions as instructed by the the Doctor to be able to assess if the patient needs to be seen the same day.

We can’t always provide on day or next day appointments with the GP of your choice, but we can normally offer you an appointment, Face to Face or via Telephone Triage with one of our ACP’s

ACP’s are Advanced Clinical Pharmacists and Paramedics Practitioner who have had advanced training and have specific skills in the assessment and treatment of acute illness. They have worked in practice for some time and have been mentored by the Practice GP’s

The ACP’s will be the first point of contact for acutely ill patients needing urgent on the day appointments, supported by the duty GP or the patients usual GP. They can diagnose, prescribe, and refer as necessary.

We have a range of appointments morning and evening and some afternoons. If you would like to make an appointment please do so by ringing the surgery or calling in.  Please make sure that you cancel any unwanted appointments as they can be given to another patient.

Home Visits

Home visits are reserved for those patients who are not well enough to attend surgery and who are not so seriously ill that an emergency ambulance is required.  If you think that you need a home visit contact the surgery.  The reception staff may ask you what the problem is in order for the doctor to assess and prioritize.  The requesting of a visit is no guarantee that you will receive one as these are at the GP’s discretion.
