We are currently open.
We also offer appointments on Thursday evenings between 6:30pm-7:15pm and Wednesday mornings 7:15am-8:00am. These appointments are now run by the doctors and are generally for commuters or patients who look after their elderly relatives during the day.
Out of Hours Service – NHS 111
If you urgently need to see a doctor and the surgery is closed, call NHS 111 for health advice or a doctors appointment.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

When you call NHS 111, a team of fully trained healthcare advisors supported by clinical advisors is here to help you.
They will ask you questions to assess you and can also give you fast and easy access to a range of clinical staff if required, including GPs, nurses and prescribing pharmacists.
