Please see 'How to make an appointment' tab above for an update on the changes to the appointment system'
We always try to offer an appointment with the doctor/nurse of your choice. If you require an urgent appointment it will help us to have a general idea about the problem so that we can determine whether response by a GP or nurse (see Nurse Acute Appointments below) would be appropriate.
Patients who fail to attend waste 100 or more appointments every single month; please phone and cancel if you are unable to make your appointment.

Nurse Acute Appointments
Our nurses can deal with a range of conditions which would previously have been dealt with by our GPs. If you ring for an urgent appointment at the surgery you may be asked if you feel the problem can be dealt with by one of the nurses.
The list below is a guide to the conditions they can and cannot deal with.
Suitable for Nurse Appointments:
Children over one year old and adults with
- Earache and acute deafness
- Sore/sticky eyes
- Mouth and tongue conditions
- Rashes, allergic reactions, bites and skin infections
- Cystitis and urinary infections
- Gynaecological infections and emergency contraception
Not suitable for Nurse 'Acute' Appointments:
- Babies under one year old and pregnant women
- Chronic conditions or acute illnesses in patients with complex medical problems
- Medication reviews, sick note renewal or repeat prescriptions
- Mental health problems
- Back pain, muscle and joint problems
- Blood pressure checks, vaccinations, dressings and routine contraceptive advice. (These should be dealt with in routine nurse appointments.)
