To Cancel An Appointment
To cancel an appointment please call 01270 275949.
We have a wide range of appointment times available.
Seeing the doctor may not always be necessary. Please check the Practice Team page and their roles to see who can deal with your questions best.
Many problems concerning advice can be dealt with over the phone and it may be more convenient for the doctor or nurse to telephone you. If you think this is appropriate please advise reception staff when you call. It might not be your usual GP who will contact you. We will always deal with urgent requests that day.
If you need an appointment with a nurse, please inform the receptionist of the type of appointment required so that adequate time can be made available.
GP appointments are routinely set at 15 minutes and nurse appointments at 20 minutes. If you feel you need more time please mention this to the receptionist when making the appointment.
As the GP’s are very busy we ask for your co-operation in attending the surgery whenever possible.
If you are too unwell or too immobile to attend, please telephone 01270 275949 before 10:00 am Monday to Friday as this assists in the planning of GP visits in the early afternoon.
It is helpful if you can give the receptionist an indication of the problem so that the doctor can prioritise the urgency of the request. Always ensure there is a contact telephone number in case the doctor wishes to speak with you prior to the visit. You may be seen by an Advanced Nurse Practitioner from the Community Team rather than a GP.
Patients recently discharged from hospital, who need nursing follow up will routinely be seen by the District Nursing Team.
Visits take place after morning surgery usually between 11:30 and 15:00.
When we are closed
If you need to contact a doctor out of hours please telephone 111.
NHS 111 has been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services in England. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
Out-of-Hours Services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
