Non Urgent Appointments

Non urgent appointments can be made by telephoning the surgery.  For non-urgent appointments, you can expect to be seen within 3-5 working days, where possible, however if you wish to see a doctor of your choice you may have to wait longer.

Urgent appointments

If you need to be seen urgently please contact the receptionists at 8am, where you may be offered an appointment on the day. We will sometimes triage your call, which means the receptionist will ask you various questions set by the doctors so they can make an informed decision as to the priority of your call; please assist the receptionist by answering these questions as fully as possible.

If you have a suspected infectious disease

Please inform reception if you suspect an infectious disease, as this will enable us to deal with it appropriately during your visit to protect you, other patients and staff. 

Consultations 16 to 75 

If a patient aged between 16 and 75 years has not had a practice consultation within a period of three years, we are happy, on request, to provide a consultation.

Giving Consent for Treatment

You have the right to accept or refuse treatment that is offered to you, and not to be given any physical examination or treatment unless you have given valid consent. If you do not have the capacity to do so, consent must be obtained from a person legally able to act on your behalf, or the treatment must be in your best interests.

Your valid consent (agreement to the course of action) is needed for the treatment that’s offered to you before any physical examinations or treatment can be given. If you haven’t given your consent, you can accept or refuse treatment that’s offered to you.

It’s important to be involved in decisions about your treatment and to be given information to help you choose the right treatment. When making treatment choices, you’ll often discuss the options with your doctor or another healthcare professional.
