Before you make an appointment we would ask you to take a moment to ask yourself whether you really need to see a doctor. Many illnesses are short lived and self limiting, and only require commonsense remedies to relieve symptoms. Advice is readily available from your local chemist.
Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Please be aware if you have been receiving dental treatment and you have a problem that is linked to that whether it be a infection or pain. The GP will not give treatment for this. You must attend a dentist appointment for follow up treatment. If your dentist does not have any emergency appointments left. Please call 111 who can direct you to a Emergency dentist locally.
Please remember the following points:
- Please try to arrive on time for your appointment.
- Please let us know if you are unable to attend.
- Please try not to save up multiple problems for one appointment. If you require a longer appointment please ask when booking.
- Please remember to make a separate appointment for each person needing to see the doctor: one appointment = one person.
