Appointments and Fees

Appointments

The Practice is open from 8 am – 6 pm Monday to Friday and from 8.00 – 12 noon on Saturday.  Routine, non-emergency matters, are dealt with on an appointment system. You may telephone, fax or call in at time during opening hours to make, or change an appointment.

If you have a medical emergency please tell the staff at the time you ring.  We do keep some appointments for urgent matters only each day.

If you feel you may need a longer appointment, or procedure, please let the staff know when making the booking. A separate appointment is usually needed for each member of a family. Please inform staff at when booking appointments if more than one family member needs to be seen.

New patient appointments and six-week check ups for mothers and babies require a double appointment.
