To help us deal with your enquiries efficiently, please use the correct option when you call. The telephones are at their busiest in the mornings, especially Mondays. There are several incoming telephone lines which cannot all be answered at once.  You will be in a queue so please be patient if your call is not answered immediately.

Our appointment line (option 1) is closed every working day between 12:00 - 14:00.

General enquiries line (option 2) is available from 08:00 - 18:00 every working day.

GP Extended Opening Hours

We would like all patients in our community to be able to see a local GP or nurse when they need to. We have set up a network of GP Practices within your community offering extended opening hours for pre-bookable and same day routine extended access appointments. 

The GP extended opening hours service operates between 18:30 – 08:00 on weekdays and 08:30 – 12:30 on weekends and allows patients to be seen within a network of GP Practices at a convenient time and location, depending on availability. 

Please note these appointments may not be at your own surgery or with a clinician that works at your registered practice.  To book an appointment please call the appointments line for availability.
