Non-urgent advice: Having Problems?

Telephone Advice

If you feel your problem can be dealt with over the telephone rather than by attending the surgery all of our doctors and nurses have telephone appointments. Please give the reception staff as much information as possible so that the doctors can be better prepared to deal with your problem when they call.


If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

Ways to cancel:

Over 270 appointments are wasted every month by non-attenders which obviously affects our ability to provide prompt access to the local community. This is the equivalent of 10 days worth of appointments for one doctor.

Patients who fail to attend two appointment without prior notice will receive a warning. A third failure to attend (and more) may sometimes result in removal from the practice list.

Please note that in order for us to reuse a cancelled appointment at least one hours notice of cancellation must be given.
