If you wish to contact the practice we are open from 08.00 to 18:00 Monday to Friday with receptionists on duty throughout each day to help with any enquiry which you may have. In addition we run late surgeries on a Monday evening which must be pre-booked, as well a small pre-booked surgery on Saturday morning for patients who are unable to see us during the week.
Doctors are available on site almost all day although many are out on visits or at meetings between 12:00 and 14:00. We have an on-call doctor who is always available to deal with urgent problems.
“Doctor First” explained
We operate a system called “Doctor First” in which most appointments to see a GP are booked following a brief telephone discussion with doctor.
Dr Harvie, Dr Lavelle and Dr Lord use Dr First for all their appointments. Dr Ferrer and Dr Cooper have some face to face appointments which can be booked direct.
We also offer appointments to pre-book on-line. All of these are telephone call-backs and the doctor will arrange any face to face appointments which are needed.
The practice provides appointments outside of “normal” working hours to offer access to those patients who have difficulty attending during those times. Appointments will be made following discussion with the doctor, our Extended Hours sessions are: -
- Monday 18:30 to 20:.30
- Saturday 09:00 to 11:00
Please ring reception on 650430 to arrange a GP call back so that an appointment can be made.
