We have been offering the same number of appointments to the same number of patients for many years – and yet demand is increasing constantly. We cannot currently meet the demand for appointments and we would like to take this opportunity to point out that we see many patients a week who do not need to be seen.
Unless you are under 2 or over 75, it is very unlikely that you need to be seen for a diarrhoea/vomiting bug, sore throat, cough or earache (and certainly not within the first 3 days of any of these conditions). Please use the information on our website to find out about self-care information before booking an appointment at the Surgery. This information can be found on the home page.
