How to see the Doctor or Nurse

We would like to encourage patients to make an appointment to see a Doctor or Nurse in advance, however we can give appointments on the day if it is urgent. Routine appointments can be booked two months in advance. It is always better if you can tell the receptionist why you need to see the Doctor or Nurse, so she can ensure you get the right appointment and the right amount of time.

A Doctor is available each weekday morning and afternoon by appointment or for emergencies ring between 8:30am -11:00am, on the day.

At 4:00pm each weekday afternoon we run a surgery for children only up to 11 years of age. Please arrive by 4:00pm. This is for children with acute illnesses only. Any long standing issues should be dealt with by appointment.

Appointments for the Nurse

We operate a booked appointment system for all clinics. When booking your appointment please let Reception know what your appointment is for, so that they can advise you when would be the best time for you to come and the length of appointment you require.
