We offer a limited number of routine appointments outside the above hours to offer flexibility to those patients that find it difficult to make normal surgery hours for routine appointments. These consist of Doctor, Nurse and Healthcare Assistant prebooked routine appointments . The surgery is only open for routine prebooked appointments at these times and they are able to be booked through reception / doctor in the normal way.
For urgent requests a doctor can be contacted throughout the day by ringing the surgery number – 01670 511393. A GP is available for urgent advice by telephone until 6.30pm.
