We're passionate about out personal list service. This means we try to make sure you see your own doctor whenever possible. We believe this allows for greater continuity of medical care.
However, please understand that this may not always be possible, we understand if you would like at times to see a doctor of a your own gender, or if you need to see a doctor when yours is on study leave or on holiday, when this happens you will be able to make an appointment with one of our salaried doctors. Your own doctor will be informed of anything which needs following up. This also applies to serious medical problems arising outside surgery hours, if you speak to NHS 111 or you visit A&E.
You can phone in for an appointment between 08:15 and 17:30 on 01249 444343.
This phone line can be very busy during peak times but we will get to you as soon as a receptionist is available.
If needed we can offer urgent on the day appointments, after speaking with reception, you will be triaged by a clinically trained member of staff who will either offer advice or allocate an appropriate appointment with the duty nurse, your own doctor or the duty doctor as required.
The duty doctor changes every day, So we cannot always give you the choice of male or female doctors. However, we are always happy to provide a chaparone when requested.
Please be aware that Blood tests should only be booked if requested by a GP, Nurse or Hospital clinician.
Your SystmOnline login can also be used for booking and cancelling appointments online.
