Consultations with a doctor or nurse are by appointment for both morning and afternoon surgeries. A routine appointment will be offered within 24-48 hours; genuine emergency consultations will be available on the same day.

Please note an appointment is for one person only. If other members of your family need to be seen you will need to make separate appointments.  

Practices are working in partnership to provide additional GP appointments between 6.30pm ‑ 8pm during the week and also over the weekend, If you need access to an evening or weekend non-urgent appointment, please call and speak to the receptionist at your registered practice during normal opening hours.  

Your appointment may be with another practice in the area and may not be at your registered practice.

Telephone Advice

If you require telephone advice from the doctor please call 0121 525 9257 and the receptionist will put you through to him as soon as he is free. Please note it may be necessary to ask you to hold or phone back if the doctor is busy with another patient.

Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.


If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
