Save time and book online – no more queuing on the telephone. Just click on the askmyGP logo above.

  • Available daily between 8:00am – 18:30pm, Monday to Friday.
  • We will usually get back to you within 2 hours (after 4:30pm it might be the next day).
  • You can request a particular Doctor or Nurse (so long as they’re working).
  • You can choose to be contacted by the surgery by telephone or secure message.
  • If we need to see you we will usually give you an appointment the same day.
  • You will need to register the first time you use askmyGP, but this can be done without any paperwork.
  • AskmyGP is available to all our patients, and you can use it to ask about your children or other people you care for (if they are registered with us).

Covid-19 Update

From Monday 19th July 2021, we can confirm that all staff at the Surgery will continue to wear masks and PPE beyond the 19th July during face-to-face consultations.

We kindly request that all patients attending the Surgery also continue to wear a facemask or covering (unless clinically exempt) until further notice.  We will continue to operate a social distancing model on our premises. We have made this decision in line with Government advice on maintaining the use of masks and face coverings in health settings. 

Complying with our policy will ensure the ongoing protection of clinically vulnerable patients and staff, and will also mean that we can maintain open access to our services while reducing the risk of transmission to our staff and the impact this would have on our ability to operate.

We thank you for your cooperation and support


We provide a full range of general medical services and all members of our team are dedicated to providing the best service possible which meets our patient's requirements. With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organizations.

We also have a very proactive Patient Participation Group, if you would like to know more about this, please click here.
