Opening Times

The Healh Centre  is open from 8.30am – 6.00pm, Monday to Friday and closed at weekends

We are aware that some patients have difficulty attending the Surgery during our normal opening hours, often due to work commitments, and we are considering the best way to help.

We have a variety of appointment times available outside our usual hours. These will be staffed on a rota and will include some weekday evenings (18:30-20:30), Thursday mornings (07:30-08:00) and a Saturday morning (9:30-11:30) once a month. 

They are for patients who cannot attend the Surgery at other times, due to work commitments, and must be booked in advance, via the Receptionists, in the usual way. These appointment times are for routine matters and not for urgent medical problems which happen when the Surgery is closed.

As usual, if urgent problems arise outside normal working hours, OXEMS, our Out of Hours Service will be available to help and may be contacted by telephoning 111, the new NHS emergency number.



People are seen by appointment by our doctors and nurses.  This is to enable each person to have a more relaxed consultation and to cut down on waiting.  Delays are bound to occur sometimes, but remember, it could be you who needs that extra time.



Doctors Appointments

We offer some appointments with the doctors daily which can be booked in advance, and also some which must only be booked on the day, to ensure we can always see people with urgent problems.  If your problem is more urgent than the time you are offered please explain that to the receptionist who will try to offer you an earlier time.

An appointment can be made via our online booking service, or by telephoning the Health Centre on 01865 244428.

All our doctors work part time and have their own surgery times, with appointments available between 08:30 and 17:15.


Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.

The surgery is lucky to have an Health and Research Assistant who is also trained in important tasks such as checking blood pressure readings, taking blood samples as well as giving health advice.
