Please note our weekend clinic is the Urgent Care Unit, designed to take pressure off nearby Accident and Emergency departments. No appointments are needed and we can serve anyone from the area, including non-patients.
For more information on the Urgent Care Unit, please click the link at the bottom of the page.
We also offer evening surgeries on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays by appointment only. We do have to prioritise those who can only come to the surgery in these extended hours, however - eg. those working a long distance away.
Minor Injury Clinic
We provide an all day (weekdays only) minor injury clinic for acute injuries. You will be assessed on arrival and your injury will be treated by a trained nurse or doctor if appropriate. In some cases we may need to refer you on to the nearest Accident & Emergency unit.
Minor Injuries Clinic operates from 8.30am to 6.30pm Mon - Fri. It should not be confused with the NHS Walk-In centres and is only for minor injuries not illnesses.
When We Are Closed
The surgery closes for training on the second Thursday afternoon of every month.
However any minor injuries, physiotherapy patients or deliveries please report to the dispensary window and ring the bell for assistance.
The GP surgery is closed on all major Bank Holidays including:
Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
However the Urgent Care Unit remains open from 8am – 6pm on all major Bank Holidays unless otherwise specified.
