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 nine Wednesday afternoons per year.  During these periods, urgent medical advice is available from the Out of Hours GP Service, by telephoning 111:

  • Wednesday 13th September 2023
  • Wednesday 18th October 2023
  • Wednesday 15th November 2023
  • Wednesday 21st February 2024
  • Wednesday 20th March 2024 

Our 'on the day' appointments become available to book at 08:30 by telephone only (apart from a small number of face-to-face Advanced Nurse Practitioner appointments that are are made available to book online at the same time, which are for one new physical health problem).  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.
