Practice Hours & Surgery Times

We are open Monday to Friday from 8.00am until 6.30pm. However, for the benefit of those patients unable to attend during normal surgery hours we operate an extended hours surgery from 7.30 to 8.00am Monday, Thursday and Friday and from 6.30 to 8.00pm two evenings a week, usually Monday and Thursday.

We close at 1.00pm on the second Wednesday of every month for staff training.

We operate an advanced access appointment system, enabling patients to book on the day. However, if you prefer to pre-book your appointment, each GP has a number of pre-bookable slots which can be booked in advance.

Please let us know if you are unable to attend for an appointment at least 30 minutes beforehand so that it may be offered to someone else who needs it. Patients who repeatedly fail to attend for appointments may be removed from the practice list.

The practice offers morning, afternoon and evening surgeries at various times throughout the day. Please ask at reception for current available times.
