Urgent/Routine Appointments

To request an urgent appointment for today (Monday to Friday):

Phone us on 01626 774656, Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 6pm

When you get in touch, we’ll ask what you need help with. The patient advisor have been asked by the GPs to ask you for a brief description / reason for your appointment. We will use the information you give us to choose the most suitable doctor, nurse or health professional to help you.

The surgery uses a system called ‘Doctor First’ which means appointments are made on the day. When you phone the surgery and have spoken to a Patient Advisor you will be triaged & assessed by a Clinician who will call you.

Alternatively you can fill in the Accurx form if non urgent and will receive a response within 2 working days except on a Bank Holiday weekend which may be longer.

Your appointment

However you choose to contact us, we may offer you a consultation:

  • by phone
  • face to face at the surgery
  • on a video call
  • by text or email

Appointments by phone, video call or by text or email can be more flexible and often means you get help sooner.
