Non-urgent advice: About

Appointments may be made online, by telephone or in person. Please make one appointment for each member of the family who needs to be seen. We try to keep to time but please be patient if someone before you takes longer than planned. Appointments are normally ten minute slots and so if you have a complicated problem, or more than one problem, please ask for a longer appointment. It is practice policy to allow patients to choose whichever doctor they wish to attend in the practice, but this may delay in you seeing a doctor.

We offer book-on-day appointments from 07:30 each day to those who have registered for online booking. We encourage all other patients to ring at 08:30. We also have limited pre-bookable appointments which are available up to two weeks in advance.

Practice Nurses

  • 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 conditions and you may be seen more quickly.

Please help us

  • If you are not able to attend your appointment please let us know in time so that the time can be used for someone else. If you are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment you may be asked to re-book.

Urgent appointments

  • If you feel that your problem is urgent we can fit you in to see a doctor on the same day. The receptionist may put you in touch with one of the doctors so that your condition can be assessed.

Telephone access

  • Doctors are available for telephone advice – during office hours on 0113 221 3510. Telephone advice is still time with the doctor so is the same as if you were to attend for a face to face appointment. Telephone appointments do need to be booked and these can be done in advance or on the same day.

If you have a dental problem

Unfortunately we are unable to help if you have a dental problem and so we will ask you to see your dentist. If you are looking for dental care the NHS website can help you find a NHS dentist. For urgent Dental Care please call 111 for the NHS 111 service.
