  • Weekday evenings between 6 p.m. & 8 p.m.
  • Saturdays 8 a.m. & 6. P.m.

To book an appointment either in the evening or at weekends please talk to our receptionists, these appointments which are outside normal surgery hours must be pre-booked, this is not a walk in or acute service, for any acute illness please continue to contact 111.

When booking an appointment the receptionist will ask if you consent to sharing your medical records with a clinician at another surgery. Once consent is gained only the clinician you see will be able to access your medical records (for 28 days from your initial booking). If you do not consent then you will not be able to book an appointment.

For help in an emergency after the surgery is closed, ring 999.
