Extended Hours

For the convenience of all our patients the surgery offers extended hours on Tuesday AND Wednesday evenings between 18.30 – 20.30.

The Surgery’s extended hours appointments are aimed at accommodating our patients who are commuters and those who have difficulty attending the surgery in the daytime.

We also offer an evening &  weekend service via our Extended Hours Hub.  Different local GPs work on a rota basis providing cover and so you may not be seen by your own GP.

This excludes:

  • Long-term, ongoing conditions, for example diabetes, asthma, etc.
