If you need to speak to us urgently between 08:00 and 08:30 or between 18:00 and 18:30 we are available on the telephone.

We also offer a mix of pre-bookable, routine appointments and telephone consultations outside our core hours as part of an enhanced service up to 20:00 on weekdays. 

On Saturdays and Sundays, the local GP Access Hub offer appointments for GP and nurse care. Please talk to the reception team for more details.

Improved Access to Appointments

We are pleased to advise that we are improving access to appointments from October 2018 with additional appointments available during the evening and weekends via GP Access Hubs.  Please click here for further details.

When We Are Closed

If you need medical assistance outside of normal surgery hours dial 111. Calls to this number are free from both landlines and mobile phones.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.  

NHS 111 Online

111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally. 

Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:

  • Treat yourself at home
  • Go to a Primary Care Centre

If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.
