Telephone Consultations:       02890 865402  9.00 am - until all slots are filled



We deal with hundreds of calls per day, which are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.

We have direct telephone line numbers to help us deal with specific calls from patients.


We would appreciate if you could contact us by using the appropriate number.

Reception staff can only deal with one person at a time on each line number. If you get an engaged tone, this means that someone is on the line.


Our telephone lines are extremely busy first thing in the morning; you may find that if you need to speak to a receptionist for a non-urgent matter that telephoning after 11.00 will make it easier to get through.


Please only use the answering machine for repeat prescription requests 


Please do not email Reception to request an appointment. 




What happens if I need a sick line? 


Telephone Enquiries: 11am - 12pm & 2 - 5pm


If you require a sick line you must certify yourself for the first 7 days, you do not need a sick line from the Doctor.


forms available at reception or by clicking the following link:




It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work,  A medical certificate, now called a "Statement of Fitness to Work" from the doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and should be accepted by your employer.


Please make sure that you book your appointment in sufficient time if you feel that you need a continuation line, the Doctor cannot leave another line without seeing you

The doctor does not need to see you or issue a signing off line, if you feel that you are fit to go back to work, this can be discussed with your employer

to tell you how you will be informed of your results.
