How to make an Appointment

01905 772389 and press option 2 to book a nurse appointment / clinician telephone call. 

You have these when making an appointment:-

  • to speak to a member of staff during 08:30 to 18:00 Monday to Friday
  • using Patient Access you can book a routine appointment with your usual doctor TEMPORARILY POSTPONED 

First decide which member of staff may deal with your problem.

It is possible to make appointments with our Clinical Pharmacist, Practice Nurse, Health Care Assistant or a Doctor. The practice staff can help if you are unsure. Please note when booking an appointment or telephone practice staff will ask for the reason for the appointment. 

We have five different types of appointments (telephone calls)  to offer to see a doctor:-

  1. Pre-bookable routine TELEPHONE CALLS with your usual doctor available 6 weeks in advance.
  2. Appointment with any doctor (48 hour appointment), if you cannot wait for your usual GP.
  3. Urgent appointments for the same day in the Emergency Clinic. As of March 2019 Please note we cannot we accept personal or private as a reason when booking an emergency appointment
  4. Extended Access which are pre bookable routine telephone appointments available with individual doctors outside their normal working hours for patients convenience. At present these are available late evening Monday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings 09:00 to 11:00 with some of the doctors and the nursing team. We would hope that these appointments would help people who find it difficult to get to surgery during the more traditional practice hours.
  5. Telephone Consultations - a telephone consultation with a doctor or nurse may be appropriate. Our staff will able to help and advise you. Your name and phone number will be taken for the clinician to return your call. Telephone consultations will most likely be returned before 19.30.

Patient Access

We have introduced Patient Access, an online facility allowing patients to book, view and cancel appointments with our practice using the internet.

Patients need to be registered to use this service. You will need to come to the surgery with 2 forms of ID, of which one must be photographic i.e. a valid passport or valid driving license. Once you have registered for Patient Access with the practice, you will be given a unique registration (PIN) number that will enable you to register at Patient Access where you will need to create your account.  Please note the practice does not have a record of your password or your security questions. 12.03.2020 due to the Corona Virus we have currently disabled the option to book appointments online - to book an appointment / telephone call please telephone the practice on 01905 772389 option 2. 

Missed Appointments & Lateness

Patients who are unwell appreciate being able to use cancellations. Please let us know if you are unable to attend, so that someone else can be seen in your place. 

The practice has the facility to send appointment reminder texts to your mobile phone. If you would like to use this service please provide the practice with your mobile number. Appointments can also be cancelled via this text.

It is the Practice policy that if you are more than 10 minutes late you may have to re-book an appointment.


All Patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they consider one is required. The chaperone may be a family member or friend but on occasions a formal chaperone may be preferred.

If possible, patients are advised to ask for a chaperone, if one is required, at the time of booking an appointment so that arrangements can be made and the appointment is not delayed in any way. The Healthcare Professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations.

Training Practice

We are a Training Practice and Dr S. Panton, Dr Steven and Dr Fitton are our GP Trainers. Trainee doctors are with us for a period of 6 months and Trainee Registrars are usually with us for 1 year. It is possible that you will see one of the trainees during the time that they are at the practice.

We occasionally record consultations for teaching purposes and may ask for your written consent for this to be done. This is to assess the doctor’s performance only. If you do not wish to have your consultation recorded please let the doctor know. If you prefer not to have your consultation recorded please be assured it will not affect your treatment. These videos are kept in a secure place and are erased as soon as their teaching role is finished.

Extended Access


As part of the move to make our Practice more patient friendly, we have signed up to the Extended Access scheme. This means we are offer appointments outside of normal surgery hours. At present we offer the following.
