Emergency Care 

When the Surgery is closed please phone the new NHS line - 111 for urgent medical help or advice but not a life threatening situation.

For life threatening situations please dial 999.

Home Visits
Telephone 01579 335320 – The doctors do home visits when clinically necessary; it is helpful to request visits before 10.00am, then a Doctor will return your call.  This call from the Doctor is not available if your telephone does not accept calls from "number withheld" callers. 

Cancel your Appointment
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.

Telephone Call Back

Please telephone 01579 324242 to book a Telephone Call Back from Doctor.  All calls are now being recorded and monitored for patient care and training purposes.


Please allow three working days for prescriptions to be processed. There is now a box to enter your patient number on the patient detail page of the Repeat Medication Manager.
