How to Contact Us
We do not accept enquiries regarding your health via email or fax. If you need to enquire about health matters you should make an appointment to see, or speak to, a GP or Nurse.
You can book appointments either using our on-line booking system, or by telephoning reception.
Telephoning the surgery
Our telephone number is 01256 479 747 (this is shown at the top of every page on our web site)
Our telephones are staffed by reception from 8:30am to 6:00pm Monday to Friday. Monday is our busiest day. It is usually much easier to telephone the surgery in the afternoon.
If you wish to speak to someone other than Reception, they will put you through.
Calls to the Practice when we are closed will be handled by our automated telephone service which will advise you who to call if you require assistance.
