We offer an extended hours service for routine appointments only. Appointments are available on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings up to 19:00. We also offer Saturday morning appointments from 08:00 to 11:20
Please note, we are unable to offer an emergency service on a Saturday morning and patients will be referred to the most appropriate NHS service e.g. Walk-in Centre, Out of hours service, pharmacy or A&E.
On Saturday the reception desk is open until 12:00 but the telephones will not be answered.
If you require urgent medical assistance that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please dial 111. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles.
