Telephone Appointments

If you need advice on a health problem that you feel could be answered over the telephone or you are unsure whether you need to be seen, we offer telephone appointments each day with a GP. Please contact the surgery on the usual appointments number 01273 552212. The receptionist will take your details and the GP will call you back, we are not able to give an exact time for your call. Unfortunately we cannot telephone outside the UK.


Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.


If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
