The surgery is open from 08:00 to 18:30 each weekday, excluding Bank Holidays.  We also have access to evening & weekend appointments via the 7-Day GP Service.

We close for staff training on one Wednesday afternoon every month for staff training.  During these periods, urgent medical advice is available from the Out of Hours GP Service, by telephoning 111:

Our 'on the day' appointments become available to book at 08:30 by telephone only.  This ensures equitable patient access to these appointments, & allows our receptionists to allocate them more efficiently.

Please try to avoid telephoning or visiting the surgery to discuss anything else between 08:30 & 09:30 each day, so the telephone call queue can be attended to by our receptionists as quickly as possible.
