The University has introduced Pay & Display around our car park at the back of the surgery. Patients attending the surgery for 90 minutes or less can park without charge in the car park area closest to the surgery.
All patients have a named doctor and you will be informed who that is when you register for the first time. However we have an "open list policy" which means you are welcome to see whichever doctor you choose but we would strongly advise trying to see a consistent doctor, especially for long term health conditions. Please see here for more information.
The surgery is open to take telephone calls from 08:45hrs in the morning.
Our telephones are staffed up to 17:30hrs in the evening; after that time, if you call us you will receive a recorded message telling you of the nearest available medical support.
A few appointments are available over lunchtime on some days and tend to be very popular.
