Appointments

We offer the following appointments:

Routine/non-urgent appointments with a GP or a nurse practitioner are pre-bookable and can be booked by phone, in person or on line*.

Urgent on the day appointments will be allocated by the duty doctor after they have carried out a telephone triage to assess the severity of the clinical problem. Please call the practice before 11:00 if you are in need of an urgent appointment and you will be added to the triage list.

We do not offer a walk-in service.

*To use the on line booking system you will need to come in person with photo ID and proof of address to apply for a username and password from the practice (for those patients aged under 14 years and under we need to see parent/guardian ID).

NB This is to ensure we issue the correct log in to the correct patient thus protecting your medical records.

Please note the following types of appointments are not available to book on line:

  • Nurse
  • Phlebotomy
  • Midwife
  • Baby immunisations
  • Clinical pharmacist
