Urgent Appointments

Call the practice or use the SystmOnline portal at 8am or 1pm on weekdays to book a same day appointment with a GP.

Same Day Appointments

Every day at 8am and 1pm a series of instantly bookable appointments open up for patients to see a GP regarding more urgent health concerns.  These appointments should be reserved for health problems that are deemed to be more urgent.  Please use routine/pre-bookable appointments for ongoing health issues, sicknote requests or medication reviews.

Once these appointments are all booked then the surgery is full.  Patients would be advised to wait until the next appointments open or to contact 111 if the health concern cannot wait.

We have used data from the last 12-24 months to determine the number of same day appointments we should be providing.  This is a new system designed to improve patient access to seeing a Doctor for urgent health matters, whilst ensuring that GP workloads are safe.  Feedback regarding the new same day appointments system has been positive so far and if you have any feedback regarding this then please email the practice at [email protected]

The receptionist will ask you for a brief summary of your problem. This allows us to make sure you are safe, occasionally we might suggest another service such as minor injuries or A&E. We understand sometimes things are personal so of course, you have the right to decline to tell the receptionist.
