Doctors Appointments


Trying to find an appointment system that suits everyone’s needs will always be a challenge, especially as we have grown to nearly a 10,000 patient practice over the last few years.

After a serious re-think and input from Government Legislation we introduced the system we have now.


Half of all of our doctor’s appointments are pre-bookable up to 2 weeks in advance. The other half are only bookable on the day of the appointment from  08:30 onwards.



If the doctor you wish to see is the duty doctor for that morning/afternoon then he/she will be dealing with all the advice calls and visit requests only and will not available for appointments.

All of our doctors appointments are 10 minute slots, if you have more than one problem to discuss, it may be necessary to book another appointment for another time.

Obviously our doctors do try to keep to time, but sometimes running late is unavoidable if a patient is seriously ill. We are grateful for your understanding at these times.

The pre-bookable appointments are always the early slots for the morning clinic and alternative slots in the afternoon clinic.

Please note:-that Mondays, the day before and the day after a bank holiday weekend are an exception-

These appointments will be book-on-the-day only
This is so we are able to cope with the high volume of patients who will call for an appointment that day.


Emergency cases will be referred to the duty doctor for the appropriate action.


Extended Hours. For Full-Time workers

Extended hours appointments are offered to patients - on  Tuesday & Wednesday  appointments until 19:00. On Thursday & Friday there are early morning appointments from 7:30 am

These appointments can be booked up to 2 weeks in advance with the Health Care Assistant, Nurse Practitoner and GP’s.
