To see a GP during this time simply come to the surgery where you will have the option to choose which GP you are seen by (subject to availability). In addition we also run an afternoon appointment system. Afternoon appointments can be made by phone or in person (Tel: 761120 between 8.00am and 6.30pm (closed 1.00 - 2.00pm). If you feel you need to be seen urgently please let the receptionist know as we run an emergency surgery every afternoon where you will be advised and seen the same day if necessary by the most appropriate healthcare professional.
