Appointments

How do I see a GP or Nurse Practitioner?

Our GPs and Nurse Practitioner run Morning and Evening Surgeries daily. You need to make an appointment in advance.

Appointments are for 10 minutes and can be made by telephone, in person or online. We will do our best to book you to see the GP or Nurse Practitioner of your choice wherever possible, but if he or she is not available we may ask you to see another.

If you are too unwell to come to the Surgery and you require a visit at home, please call the Surgery before 10am. Home visits take up much more time than a consultation in the Surgery, so if possible please come into the Surgery to be seen. We will ask you some brief questions to find out about your problem.

How do I see a nurse?

Our nurses run clinics daily in our Treatment Rooms and see patients by appointment only. You can make an appointment either by telephone or in person. Our nurses are experts in managing many chronic conditions and diseases and are key members of our clinical team along with our Assistant Practitioner. Clinics include Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Hypertension and Healthy Heart, Well Woman, Menopause – plus wound care, vaccinations, Baby Clinic and minor injuries.

The nursing team carry out blood and urine tests, dressings, vaccinations, blood pressure checks, ECGs and other referrals from the doctors. We also provide travel advice and vaccinations. Please tell us what care you need when you make the appointment and we will find a suitable slot for you.

Telephone advice

Our doctors, nurse practitioner and nurses are pleased to give advice over the telephone if it is appropriate for your problem. Please telephone and we will try to arrange for you to speak to the right person.
