Important Notice: Late arrivals
Given the demands on doctors' and nurses' time, we cannot guarantee you will be seen if you arrive beyond the appointed time.
If you are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment, you will be asked to re-book your appointment. This is to ensure we provide the best service possible and so that all patients get a fair opportunity to discuss their problems.
Do you need to see the doctor today? You can now get FREE NHS ADVICE and FREE TREATMENT for a range of common ailments from our local community pharmacists without having to make an appointment with a GP.

Appointments not Attended
We would like to remind the 230 patients who booked an appointment to be seen in December 2019 but failed to either attend the appointment or cancel it, that they can contact us on 02920 353020 to cancel their appointment. 27 patients missed their appointment last week.
Patients who miss appointments increase the time it takes for all of our patients to book a routine appointment as they usually rebook the missed appointment.
Patients who persistently miss appointments, without a valid reason, will be asked to register with a different doctor’s surgery.
