Please remember: Emergencies will always be seen on the same day.
To save queuing at the counter, please use the touch screens to book in when you arrive for your appointment.
You will find the nurses on one side of the waiting room and the doctors on the other. If you are not sure before you set off, please ask at reception. It is a long way round if you head off in the wrong direction.
Each doctor has telephone triage slots which may be allocated to you if you ask for an appointment. A doctor will then ring you back and offer the most appropraite outcome e.g. an appointment or medical advice.
A triage nurse is also available most mornings between 08:30 and 11:00. To access a triage doctor or nurse please call 01636 702363.
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.

GP visit recommended:
GP visit may be useful:
GP visit is not usual:
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
