Clinics are staggered during the working day and appointments are offered between 08:00 and 18:30. If you are registered for online services many appointments with GPs and nurses are available to book online. Otherwise, please telephone Reception to book an appointment: 01264 351144.
If you need to see a doctor in an emergency outside of our core hours 08:00 to 18:30 Monday to Friday you should call 111.
All consultations are by appointment. When telephoning, please indicate the degree of urgency of your request. Appointments are normally offered for 10 minutes. A 10 minute appointment will typically give time for one clinical issue to be discussed. If you wish to discuss multiple items you should request a longer appointment. We ask this to give you the GP time required and to help provide you with a safer, less rushed consultation.
Our reception team have been asked by the GPs to determine the reason that you wish to see the GP or nurse. This is to help us give you the most appropriate appointment or to direct you to an alternative service such as Minor Injuries or your local pharmacist. For patients requesting to be seen same day, this information helps the GPs prioritise patients on clinical need and in some cases may be critical in saving your life. For nurse appointments, because we have a team of nurses with different skills and rooms with different equipment it is important that we match your need to the appropriate staff and equipment.
Children under 16 years of age should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Enquiries regarding registration can be made by telephone or in person to Reception. Staff will advise on the procedure to be followed.
All emergencies are triaged by the Duty Dr. Your name will be placed onto the list and you will be called back to assess your condition. If deemed necessary you may be required to come into the surgery for further evaluation of your symptoms. Please note that sick notes and on-going care will not be discussed during a triage call to patients.
Appointments for the Emergency Surgery are bookable only on the day of the surgery.
Urgent problems will always be seen on the same day, but not necessarily by your own doctor. Please do not abuse this facility.

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
