Whilst we’ve received information that all 50-64 year olds may be eligible for a free flu vaccination as part of plans to protect more people against seasonal flu, these free vaccinations will be subject to vaccine delivery later in the year.

This allows us (GP’s and community pharmacists) to focus on those who are in an at risk group, such as pregnant women and people with long term health conditions. They will be given priority and offered the vaccine first; if you are in this category you will be contacted.

If you are aged 50-64 and not in one of the at risk categories you will be made aware in the coming months if you will be able to attend for vaccination. If the programme is extended this is likely to be November or December.



Appointments can either be conducted by telephone or face to face. Each appointment is 15 minutes. If you have a lot to discuss please ask to see if a double appointment is available. As continuity of care is really important, please ask to talk to or see your ‘usual’ doctor if possible.

  • Routine appointments - for routine matters. Some doctor and nurse practitioner appointments are available up to two weeks in advance. Nurse and HCA appointments are available up to 6 weeks in advance.
  • Same day appointments - for when you need to see or talk to a doctor or nurse practitioner within 24 hours. For problems that cannot wait. We also have some ‘same day’ phlebotomy appointments available.

    GP appointments are now available in your area during the evenings and at the weekend. To book an appointment, contact your practice.


Training and Research

From time to time you may be asked for consent to have medical and nursing students observe your consultation or to take part in research. This is of course always optional. On occasion your notes may also be used in research but all personal details are removed.


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. If you are running late please call and let us know as soon as possible. If you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment the doctor or nurse will not be able to see you. If you miss your appointment we will write to you to explain that persistent missing of appointments will result in removal from our practice list.
