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. We have a small number of appointments availabe for Practice Nurses during our extended hours surgeries on Wednesday or Thursday evenings.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
