Choose Well - Useful Information


All consultations are by appointment only

Please ring the Surgery for an appointment with the GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner the same day or the following day. If this is difficult please inform the staff as we do offer pre-bookable appointments. We do encourage patients to use the online service for booking GP appointments to prevent delays when trying to contact the surgery by telephone.

To help us to ensure that the system runs smoothly it would be appreciated if you:

  • Arrive on time. If you are late you might not be seen
  • Cancel any unwanted appointments
  • Question if you need to see the doctor or would the nurse be more appropriate

Our Nursing Staff are virtually always in attendance, and the Doctors may consider it appropriate to use their expertise to deal with your problem.

Telephone 01538 753771.

Extended Hours

We open at 7am on a Tuesday and Thursday. On these days a nurse will start surgery at 7am. In addition to this a GP will start at 7.30am on a Thursday.

When referring you to a consultant, we will hopefully be able to give you an idea of waiting list times. If you wish to see a consultant privately, we can tell you their charges and provide you with their private rooms' telephone number.


This service allows you to make a telephone appointment with the doctor instead of having to visit the surgery. These are limited to 2 per GP per day.
