Doctors Surgeries

Doctor’s surgeries, in the morning, start between 7:30am and 9:15am depending on the Doctor concerned, and typically run for 2 and 3 hours, again depending on the Doctor in question.

Evening surgeries generally start between 3:30 and 4:30 and are slightly shorter than morning

From 2009 the practice has been running late evening surgeries on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, offering appointments for patients who may have difficulty attending during the daytime. The latest bookable appointment is usually 7:15pm.

On Thursday and Friday there are surgeries running in the lunchtime/early afternoon period.
