You may now register or log-on to book appointments to see the doctor - click here. To activate this facility, you will need to complete an application form and take it to the surgery with proof of identity. You will then be issued with unique login details and a password for you to access EMIS on-line.
Please note doctors do not carry out smear examinations - these will need to be booked with a nurse.
Appointments with our nurses are not available to book on-line. If you would like an appointment with one of our practice nurses, including smears, please phone reception to book this.
A portion of our appointments are available the morning or afternoon you request, allowing us to respond to your health needs as they arise. Other appointments are available to book up to six weeks in advance.
Each appointment is booked as a 10 minute slot and each consultation is designed to deal with one problem. If you have more than one problem, or a medication review and a separate problem then please book more than one appointment or else book one of the longer appointments that are available on request. Your fellow patients in the waiting room will appreciate you being realistic about how many problems can be dealt with in a single 10 minute appointment.

Telephone Appointments The doctors are now pleased to offer telephone consultations for suitable problems as an alternative to a face to face consultation. There are a limited number of appointments and these are available at 8.30 am on the day. Our receptionist will confirm an estimated time when the doctor will phone you and so it is important that you leave at telephone number where you can be reached.
We have a "smart" phone system that allows you choices between the appointment line, results and other enquiries.
Out-of-Hours Medical Care
Should you need health information or advice at any time of the day or night, call NHS Direct on 0845 4647
NHS Direct is at the forefront of 24-hour health care - delivering telephone and e-health information services day and night direct to the public. Although the organisation started out in 1997, it has been growing and changing over that time, most noticeably since April 2004.
It is now far more than a telephone health line - NHS Direct has an authoritative health website, and 2004 saw the addition of the NHS Direct digital TV service - one of the largest interactive services in the UK. Over two million people now access NHS Direct every month.
The Warwickshire Healthline is also available to offer help and advice and can be contacted on:
