Welcome to our website


The Practice consists of our GP consulting rooms, Practice Nurse clinic and treatment rooms. In addition there are also facilities for other visiting specialists. 


All GP, Practice Nurse and Healthcare Assistant surgeries run on an appointment system, although provision will always be made for serious emergencies.


Emergencies will always be seen where the doctor considers this is required on medical grounds.



Urgent Prescription Requests 


We appreciate that anyone can occasionally forget to order their medicines. Urgent / On the Day prescription requests place a large burden on the daily workload for all practice staff even if it is for a repeat item.


Due to the increasing pressures on the service we provide it has become necessary to prioritise urgent requests according to medical need. The decision regarding the ‘urgency’ and therefore the supply of the prescription lies with the Duty Doctor.

We thank you for your understanding and co-operation. 



Change to Practice Telephone System


In addition to all the recent changes within the practice we have also had a new telephone system installed.


We now only have one contact number for the surgery which is 01875 810736 and this operates from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. This number rings through to 2 reception desk phones. We would like to make you all aware that when you dial in and the phone rings for a long period of time that we are not ignoring the call but we are currently on the call in front of you. Unfortunately we are unable to get a message added to the system to let you know that you are in a queue but please be assured we will answer your call as soon as possible.


We can only apologise for this and we hope that you understand how busy the phones and reception can be especially when the surgery opens at 8am.




Extended hours within the Practice


Normal Practice opening hours are from 08.00 through to 18.00 but we also offer some early morning and late evening entended hours clinics. These are for patients who are working and require appointments outwith the normal working day.


Please contact reception for more information about this service and details of the next available clinic.




Patients are free to consult any available doctor. However, if you wish to see a particular doctor you may need to wait a little longer for an appointment.
