We offer additional appointments, outside our usual opening hours in order to improve access for those of our patients who have commitments during the normal working day which prevent them from being able to attend routine appointments. We try to ensure that these appointments are only used by those people who really can’t come in at any other time, and we would ask for your co-operation in this—If you can get in during our normal opening time please leave the weekend appointments for those who cannot.
These appointments are available on alternate Saturday mornings - see our opening hours. Please contact our reception on 01208 269988 for full details of dates and times, or check via our online booking service.
If you feel you have a need for an appointment at a weekend and have difficulty attending appointments during the weekday working hours please contact the reception on 01208 269988 or follow the link to book online.
