Some of these appointments may be outside of the traditional surgery hours of Monday – Friday 8am to 6pm. Please ask at your specific site for further information in regards to extended hours.

The telephone lines are currently available 8.00am-12.00pm & 1.00pm-6.00pm Monday to Friday. Between the hours of 12.00pm-1.00pm patients who telephone the surgery and require urgent medical assistance will be directed to an Out of Hours provider.


On alternate Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12 noon, the telephone lines will be closed and will re-open the following morning at 8.00am. Patients who make contact with the practice will be directed to an Out of Hours provider.


Call back service


Due to patient feedback regarding wait times when phoning through to the practice, we have implemented a call back service on our phone lines. If you wish to use this service, please press option 0 (zero) when prompted and ensure you await further instructions confirming the number you wish to receive the call back before ending the call. When you reach position 1 in the queue, you will receive a call from the practice, please note this does not guarantee you an appointment it purely holds your position in the queue.

If you do not consent into this service then test results can be obtained by telephoning the surgery after 1pm.


You have the right as a patient to express a preference of clinician and where possible we will always endeavour to accommodate this. However, there may be times where we advise for you to see a different clinician, either due to a change in hours or due to staff leave.
