Routine appointments

If you need to book a routine follow up appointment with the GP or nurses you can make an appointment up to six weeks in advance.

Please phone after 10:30 to avoid busy times. Many routine appointments are for patients who have a long term or chronic condition that needs monitoring on a regular basis. We will let you know when your next appointment is due with the practice nurse or doctor either by post, text message or telephone.

If this time is not convenient, please telephone reception to re-arrange it. It is important to continue your regular check ups, even if you are feeling well.

Routine appointments are available during normal surgery hours with the practice nurse and/or doctor. We hold regular clinics for asthma, diabetes, COPD, hypertension and heart disease. Please visit our Clinics and Services page for further information.
