Appointments

We will always try our best to get you seen at the surgery closest to your home. To make an appointment please telephone or call in to the surgery.

If you can’t make an appointment you have booked, please let us know so we can give the slot to someone else.

GP appointments are now available in our area during the evenings and at the weekend. This may not be with your own GP. You may be offered these appointments by our Reception Team.

Community Pharmacy Consultation 

When calling the surgery, our trained team may offer you a referral to see your local community Pharmacist. 

You will be referred consultation with a fully qualified pharmacist at a local pharmacy. It involves a clinical assessment and conversation with the pharmacist. This will be in the privacy of a consultation room. 

The pharmacist has the right clinical training to assess you and recommend the best treatment for some common conditions. 

If your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, the pharmacist will help you to get an urgent GP appointment if needed. 

If you don’t need any treatment the pharmacist will be able to provide reassurance. For instance, a minor illness may get better on its own. 

To help with symptoms, the pharmacist may offer to sell you an over-the-counter medicine.

The pharmacist will make a record of the outcome and send it to your GP.
