The surgery runs an appointment system. Appointments may be made:

– In person by calling at the reception desk.
– By telephone. It is possible to make an appointment at either site on either of these numbers.

Unfortunately, except in cases of genuine emergency, you can not expect to be seen by a doctor or a nurse if you do not book an appointment.

Opening times for both surgeries may be viewed here for The Guildhall Surgery or The Barrow Surgery
Times of clinic for individual doctors may be viewed here


To book an appointment to see a practice nurse, please telephone the above number. Generally, it is not possible to specify a particular nurse as their availabilities vary and who you see will depend, to some extent, on what service you need. For example, our hypertension clinic is run by only two of our practice nurses. Please indicate to the receptionist what service you need at the time of booking.
