How To See a Doctor

You may make an appointment by telephone, in person or online (see the link on the right).

You are welcome to see any doctor. Please let us know if you prefer to see one of us in particular.

If you require a routine appointment for a problem of a non-urgent nature, please help by giving as much notice as possible.

Urgent cases will be seen on the same day, but not necessarily by the doctor of choice. Even if all appointments have been taken arrangements will be made to fit in urgent cases. Please let our receptionists know if you have such urgent need. The earlier in the day you ring, the more chance there is of our being able to see you.

If you cannot keep your appointment, please cancel as early as possible. Failure to attend prevents someone else from doing so.

We believe that the best way for us to answer your clinical queries or conserns is for you to make an appointment for a consultation. All consultations with the doctors are by appointment. Even in an urgent "fit in" situations, consultations are organised "by arrangement".

Please don't e-mail or fax requests for appointments as we can't guarentee to receive your request in time.

Consultations are available at the surgery throughout the day between 8.00am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday.

Routine consultations are also available for some Extended Hours
