The Practices


For an appointment on the same day please phone the surgery from 8:00 in the morning. Urgent cases will always be seen on the day.

You may book an appointment with a doctor in advance if you wish. We aim to reserve approximately half of all surgery appointments on every day for patients who wish to book in advance.

Nurse appointments must be booked in advance but our nurses make every effort to accommodate urgent cases that may arise.

Phlebotomy appointments need to be booked in advance. Please don’t book a blood test unless previously discussed with a doctor. If you have a chronic disease such as heart disease, stroke or diabetes you will need an annual review as a minimum.

Patients may request to speak to the Doctor on the telephone. Reception staff may ask for some details regarding the reason for the call. The doctor will usually call back after surgery or at the next available opportunity.

We now offer an online service (the Waiting Room) which allows patients to book appointments over the internet.

Before you can use this service, we need to register you as a user. If you would like to register, please contact the surgery by telephone or in person.

Repeat Prescriptions

We do not accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions. These must be requested in writing. You can use the repeat prescription slip that you will be given with your prescription. Alternatively you can collect a form from the surgery.

Allow two working days for the prescription to be ready for collection. You can collect the prescription from the surgery or have it sent directly to a chemist of your choice. If required most chemists offer a service to have medication delivered to your home.

Controlled Drugs Via EPS

Please note, from 3rd April 2019 here at the surgery we will be able to send Controlled Drugs electronically via EPS (Electronic Prescription Service). Therefore you will no longer receive a separate prescription, unless you are being prescribed oral liquid Methadone (this will continue to be prescribed as a paper prescription).
