Appointments System

Appointments can be booked:

  • online by following the link at the top of this page - please note you will need to register online to use this service 
  • by telephoning 01706 335360 (Option 1)
  • in person at reception

Our normal opening hours are Monday to Friday 08:00 to 18:30. Additional appointments are available on Friday mornings between 07:15 – 08:00 and Tuesday evenings 18:30 - 20:00. Appointments can be booked up to six weeks in advance with a doctor or nurse. 

We politely request that patients stick to one problem per appointment or request a double appointment if there are multiple concerns that need to be addressed. 

All patients aged 85 and over are automatically offered a double appointment.


Care Navigation

Your request for an appointment will be dealt with by one of our trained reception staff who will ask some questions to help you to make an appointment with the appropriate clinician or service. You may request to see any doctor, and we do encourage you to follow through your current health problem with the same doctor where possible. Normally, you will be offered the earliest appointment with the doctor of your choice.  If the doctor is fully booked, we will try to offer you an earlier appointment with another doctor.

If you feel you need to be seen urgently please tell the receptionist and we will arrange for the duty doctor to contact you on the same day.


We are a Training practice. We train doctors intending to become GPs and Consultants.  The process will sometimes involve consultations which are video recorded or where a trainee and trainer are present.  In this case your permission will always be requested.

We are also involved in the teaching of undergraduate Medical, Nursing and Physician Associate students.

Cancel an Appointment

It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you regularly fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you of this and you may be removed from the practice list.

Appointments can be cancelled:

  • Replying CANCEL to your appointment reminder text
  • online by following the link at the top of this page - please note you will need to register online to use this service 
  • by telephoning 01706 335360 (Option 1)
  • in person at reception

Extended Access Service

Extended Access is a local service for local patients offering evening and Saturday appointments with GPs, Nurses and Health Care Assistants.  This is not a walk-in service.  These will be delivered by a new provider from April 2022.

The Extended Access Service is available by appointment only. During normal hours your GP practice may book an appointment for you, subject to availability. You can request an appointment outside of working hours by asking for the extended access service.
