You will be offered a GP appointment the same day for an urgent problem. However, if you wish to see a specific doctor for a non-urgent appointment it may take a little longer.
Surgeries and clinics normally start on time on time and we aim to see you within 20 minutes of your appointment time. Delays are sometimes unavoidable but when this happens we will try to keep you informed.
Mrs Veronica Payne is the practice manager and is responsible for the overall management of the practice. Please contact her with any general enquiries. She would be pleased to hear any suggestions you may have about the service offered by the practice.

Our Practice Nurses run surgeries by appointment to carry out baby immunisations, travel advice and immunisations, blood pressure checks, dressings and removal of stitches, ear syringing, new patient health checks, smoking cessation advice, Pill checks, and Warfarin testing. They also run clinics to monitor asthma, diabetes, chronic obstructive airways disease and heart disease.
We occasionally teach Hospital Doctors on a 4 month placement to gain experience of General Practice, and also St George's Hospital final year medical students. As part of their training they find it very valuable to sit in on clinics. However, if you would prefer for this not to happen in your consultation, please let us know.
Counselling can be arranged but you will need to be referred by a Doctor. Private counselling is available; you can make an appointment without seeing a Doctor first. Please ring Nicky Brown on 07736 678349, Evelyn Nathanson on 01483 283289/07883 065697 or Alison Paice on 07931 403043.
