Appointments

Reception opening hours 8am-6.30pm Monday to Friday

We offer a variety of appointment types and lengths to suit the needs of our patients.

Most appointments take only ten minutes; some patients needs less time, some more and may require a Doctor and Nurse to be present together.

Due to the variety of appointment options, the Reception team may ask the reason why you are requesting an appointment. This is to ensure your appointment is with an appropriate medical professional for the correct amount of time.

GP Led Telephone Call Back Service

Monday-Friday

Not all consultations need to be face to face. We provide a telephone call back service either on the same day, or the option to prebook a call back with a particular GP or a preferred day. If you need to be seen, the clinician may arrange a face to face appointment.
