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 ailments and you may be seen more quickly. Our practice nurses hold surgeries every weekday morning and afternoon. They can help with immunisations, blood tests, travel advice, ear syringing, removal of stitches and the treatment of warts and verrucas etc.
To make an appointment with one of our practice nurses, please call 01271 314236 between 08:30 & 13:00 or 14:00 & 17:00 or you can view, book and cancel routine appointments online. It is a simple and easy system to use, and especially useful during those times when the telephone lines are busy or the practice is closed. If you wish to sign up for this service you can either:
(1) visit the surgery and ask for your online appointments login details, or
(2) click here - then in the green box, click "Register" and follow the instructions on the screen.
If you feel the nurse can help you with advice over the telephone please speak with the receptionist who will ask for your contact number and take a brief message. The nurse will return your call at a convenient time.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible on (01271) 329004 to allow us to give the slot to someone else.
Please ring for results after 11:30, as results are not received at the Medical Centre until later in the morning.
