Many medical problems and minor illnesses are effectively dealt with by our practice nurses, ie. colds, flu, coughs, cystitis, diarrhoea and vomitting (although we ask you ring and do not come into the surgery), dizziness, ear ache, emergency contraception, fevers, fungal infections, head lice, missed pills, mouth problems, nappy rash, nose bleeds, rashes, the morning after pill, thread worm, warts and verrucaes and sore throats. In order to book the most appropriate appointment for you, with either the doctor or nurse, it is helpful if you tell the receptionist what your problem is.
Appointments can be booked over the telephone or on line. Please speak with one of our receptionists who will be happy to issue you with on line appointment booking details.
Same day appointments are offered Monday - Friday, please call as soon as possible after 8.00am for a same day appointment.
Please remember to cancel appointments made in advance and subsequently not needed.
