How to use your Doctor

You are free to see any Doctors at the surgery and are not restricted to your registered Doctor named on your NHS card. We find it helps with continuity if you see the same Doctor for each episode of illness.

At the surgery, consultations are mainly by appointment via the telephone. The doctor may ask you to come down to see them face to face at a mutually convenient time for up to 15 minutes. Patients should arrive in good time; the Doctor reserves the right to cancel any appointment that is 10 minutes overdue. We make every effort to deal with urgent problems on the same day.
