On the day appointments are available from 08:30 Monday to Friday.

We close on approximately eight afternoons throughout the year for staff training. NHS 24 covers emergencies at this time.

Saturday Morning Appointments

As part of the Government led extended hours initiative we provide a nursing service as well as GP appointments on a Saturday morning.

The surgery is open for pre-booked appointments ONLY. Please ring the bell to alert staff.

Please be advised that the following are NOT available on a Saturday morning:

  • Prescriptions
  • Telephone access to the Practice
  • Results
  • Blood tests

Appointments for a Saturday will be pre-booked and, as there will be no telephone access, cancellations will need to be done in advance, or by a note posted through the door. 

As before, in a life-threatening emergency dial 999 for an ambulance.  For other problems that cannot wait until the surgery reopens please contact NHS24, or go to your local pharmacist for some advice.

The appointments office is open Monday to Friday from 8.30 am - 6.00 pm when we will be very pleased to help you.

When we are closed

An emergency service operates 24 hours a day.

  • Between 18:00 and 08:00 and at weekends, call NHS 24 on freephone number 111.
  • Between 08:00 and 18:00 on weekdays, call 01968 672612.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
