Extended Hours

One evening a week we offer appointments from 18:30 to 20:00. These appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance. Reception staff can provide you with dates of when these evening appointments are available. However, please note limited reception services are available during these extended hours.

Consultation Times

In addition to their usual consultation times, 5 clinicans including doctors, nurses or healthcare assistants will sit on one evening a week from 18:30 to 20:00 to offer out of hours appointments. We hope that these evening appointments will allow our patients who have commitments during the day, a more convenient option for attending an appointment. Reception staff can provide you with dates of when these evening appointments are available. However, please note limited reception services are available during these extended hours.

*Times below are subject to alteration.

Bringing samples to surgery

Please can we ask that routine samples are brought to the surgery before 12pm on a Friday. Those brought after have to be kept over the weekend and this can cause a false result. If however, you have urinary tract infection symptoms please do still call us and we will advise best course of action.
