Doctors

Patients are free to make appointments with the doctor of their choice and are encouraged to see their usual doctor for continuity of care. However, they should be aware that emergency appointments will be made with the duty doctor on that day and there may sometimes be a longer wait for a routine appointment with the doctor of their choice. The majority of doctors€™ routine appointments made by telephone are available from 8.20 am to 11.00 am and from 3.00 pm to 5.30 pm. Please note telephone calls into the surgery between 8am and 10.30am are for emergency appointment booking only  subject to availability.
