If you would like to make an appointment with a doctor or nurse following your registration, please click here to find out how to book appointments or request home visits.

Students registered with us who are at home on holiday can still book consultations with us by using our online consulting tool  to avoid the need to register as a temporary patient. We are only able to do home visits to your registered address.

All patients are allocated a "usual GP" on registration.

As part of the GP contract Patients aged 16 to 74 who have not needed to be seen in the surgery for three years or more can make an appointment for a consultation regarding their general health. Patients aged 75 and above who have not needed to be seen in the surgery for 12 months or more may also make an appointment for a consultation regarding their general health. Patients who have attended the surgery will have the opportunity to discuss their general health with a GP, Nurse Practitioner or Nurse.


Named Accountable GP

All patients registered at the practice have been allocated a named GP who is responsible for your overall care at the practice. If you wish to know your accountable GP please contact the practice. If you have a preference to which GP should be your accountable GP we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request. If you do not wish to have a named accountable GP please contact the practice to let us know.
