- Pre-bookable appointments
We offer a number of pre-bookable appointments that are available 6 weeks in advance.
We make a number of urgent appointments available every afternoon (Monday to Friday). Please ensure that you only request these appointments for treatment of conditions requiring same day medical attention.
You may also request a telephone consultation with a GP if you feel that your problem can be dealt with without being seen by the GP.
In addition to the Practice's normal opening hours and additional Surgery opening times, you can also book an appointment to see a local clinician in the evenings or on a Saturday or Sunday across South Worcestershire.
GP Practices are working together to provide extended access appointments to our patients. This means that your extended access appointment might be with a different GP or nurse or based in a different location or Practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only. These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the Surgery during our opening times - when calling please ask for an extended access appointment and our Receptionists will help you to find a convenient appointment.
Outside of Practice hours you can contact the Extended Hours Team on 01905 789061
