Appointments can be booked by telephoning reception.
These are booked as 10 minute consultations and you can be seen by any GP, but we would encourage you to see the same GP whenever possible.
Your GP/ANP appointment is 10 minutes. We want to make this 10 minutes as effective as possible so please only discuss one issue at each appointment. If you have more than one problem, you must let the GP/ANP know so that you both can plan how to address these over the course of one or more appointments. For more information, see the leaflet Getting the Best from your GP Appointment

Our nurses offer a wide range of healthcare services, for the following; Contraception, Weight/Diet, Dressings, Diabetes, Asthma, Ear Syringing, Removal of Stitches, Blood Pressure Checks, Cervical Smears, Smoking Advice, Urine Tests, Immunisations and much more.
In addition to this we run a minor illness clinic. This is a clinic for straight forward problems of short duration that can be dealt with by a nurse. This is not for on-going health problems so if you need to be seen quickly they will take care of you, and sort out any prescriptions you may need
Our senior nurse is qualified to prescribe when required, and she can help with ailments such as Sore Throat, Coughs, Cold, Chest Infection, Urinary Tract Infection, Fever, Abdominal pain, Diarrhoea, Skin disorders, Minor Injuries, Earache and Bites/stings.
Our healthcare assistant and phlebotomist perform valuable healthcare services such as: Blood/Urine Tests, ECGs, Blood Pressure Checks, Weight Management, Toe Nail Cutting Service, New Patient Checks, Patient ABCs (Annual Birthday Checks) and NHS Health Checks.
In the event of sudden onset of your illness, it may be possible to book an urgent appointment at the surgery. You will be asked the nature of your condition and the doctor may also wish to speak to you directly. You may not be able to see a doctor of your choice and could also be advised to call 999 if the doctor feels it is life threatening i.e. chest pains.
In a life-threatening emergency such as sudden severe chest pain, loss of consciousness or severe bleeding - dial 999 before ringing the surgery.
Sometimes it may be possible to resolve problems over the telephone without visiting the surgery. If you think this may be helpful, please ring the surgery, preferably before 11:30 and we will arrange for a doctor to return your call.
Telephone Between 8.00 and 9.30 am to access the Triage Clinic
During the above times patients will be able to access the triage service and will receive a call back from our Advanced Nurse Practitioner or the GP who will assess symptoms and arrange for the appropriate follow up actions, which could include a same day appointment at the surgery.
For periods outside of the times above the triage lines will be closed. Reception are unable to book patients into the triage service outside of these times, however there will be clear advise for patients and access to the appropriate care paths outside of these times.
This operational change is essential to ensure we continue to deliver high quality care to our patients.
If you have any questions around the above changes please do not hesitate to contact the surgery.
We are no longer running the drop in clinic on Wednesday mornings.
There will be timed appointments for clinically acute on the day problems that can be booked on the day and will be signposted to the appropriate clinician by our trained reception team.

Opening hours are:

This is not a walk-in service. Appointments are required and are bookable through GFMC reception.
As part of our on-going efforts to improve patient access to appointments we offer the following additional service:
If you are too ill to come to the surgery or are house bound please telephone before 11:00 (except in an emergency) so that the doctors can plan their visits. The doctor may ring you back to discuss your symptoms before visiting. Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Home visits usually take place between 12:00 and15:00.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
For more information see the DirectGov website (where this information was sourced).
Each year, thousands of patients miss their appointments simply because they forget when it is. Text reminders have been proven to substantially reduce the number of missed appointments and is a FREE service which started in February 2009. It is hoped that this will help to reduce the number of missed appointments and therefore improve appointment availability for patients.
If completing the form below please ensure you complete all the questions marked *
We recommend you double check the Mobile telephone number entered to avoid text messages potentially being sent to the wrong recipient.
