Booking an Appointment

Before booking an appointment, please look at the ‘Appointment Advice’ section of our website – this is also available at reception. It has information about common conditions and who it is best to see. Our nurses can deal with many problems, and if needed refer you on to the doctor. Sometimes it can be helpful to visit the pharmacy first, for advice and over-the-counter medications.

In order to improve access for our patients, we also offer GP telephone consultations and nurse telephone triage.

We can then either deal with your enquiry over the telephone or book an appropriate appointment for you.

All appointments are bookable in person at reception, via our online service, or you can call: 01483 409309 

Please remember to cancel your appointment if you don’t need it, so someone else may use it. If you give us your mobile number when you register, we will try to text you to confirm your appointment and to remind you the evening before. This service is not guaranteed.

Please remember to inform reception if you change your address or telephone number.
