Open Access Appointments
We run an open access clinic between 8am - 9 30am each weekday morning.
This gives you the opportunity to see a GP that day. It is very popular.
The Health Centre does not open until 8am. There is controlled access for those with prebooked appointments in our extended hours surgery from 7am - 8am.
We endeavour to see patients as quickly as possible. Demand for this service can be variable.
You have the opportunity to book an appointment with a GP up to 2 weeks in advance and we offer a range of Practice Nurse appointments. You are also able to book a telephone appointment with a GP or Practice Nurse for advice or to discuss any health concerns.
Patient Self Check In
You can now book yourself in for your appointment with the GP, Practice Nurse or clinic (Midwife, dietician) using the touchscreen at Reception. Just enter your date of birth, confirm your appointment and you will register as arrived. This will allow the GP or Practice Nurse to call you from the waiting areas.
DIY Health Check Area
Waiting Room 1
This uses touchscreen technology and calibrated equipment. It is simple to use and allows you to check your blood pressure, height and weight and answer simple health check questionnaires at your own convenience. There is no need to see the GP or Practice Nurse for these simple tests. The results are communicated to your medical record and you will be prompted to make an appointment if further advice or intervention is recommended.
Drop in to Reception for access to Waiting Room 1 to try this out.
The Health Care Assistant will be happy to provide any help or information.
