The Surgery is open from 8.00am to 6.30pm every weekday.
We also offer late appointments, after 6pm, on Mondays (Dr Meader), Thursdays (Dr Banfield) and alternate Tuesdays (Dr Macready). We offer early appointments before 8.30am on a Wednesday morning (Dr Corke)
Please telephone reception or attend in person to make an appointment. Please state which doctor or nurse you would like to see and we will oblige if possible.
Standard appointments are 10 minutes long. However some things are better suited to a longer appointment and examples include insurance and HGV medicals, smears or even if you feel that 10 minutes will not be sufficient. If in doubt ask the receptionist.
We will always try and see urgent cases on the same day.
Late appointments are available after 6pm, every Wednesday, Thursday and alternate Tuesdays.
Please note children under 16 years of age should be accompanied by a parent, relative or guardian.
Telephone consultations take place after surgery, if you wish to speak to the doctor please inform reception and your telephone call will be returned after surgery. We prefer not to leave messages on answering machines unless specifically asked to do so by the patient.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 11:00
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
Our experienced practice nurses Mrs Kath Williams, Tracey Badham and Angela Bennett, are ably assisted by health care assistants Mrs Jean Barnes and Mandy Newland. They offer:

Immunisation clinics are held weekly at the surgery.
Child health surveillance - all children are seen at six weeks by the doctor and at eight months by the health visitor for developmental assessment.

All children will be invited for a vision check at 4 years old.
