We have often have last minute spaces in our vaccine clinics for either the same day or next day. If you are aged 35 or over, please call our dedicated vaccine booking line - 07515 287765 - to be put on the list. We usually have 2 or 3 clinics on every week.
Changes to our booking system
We would like to make our patients aware of some changes that we will be introducing to our current appointment system. This is to ensure the safety of our patients due to ever increasing demand on general practice, and these changes will come into effect from Monday 3rd May.
Our opening hours will remain the same, but the surgery and telephone lines will now close between 13.00-14.00pm, for staff to deal with urgent on the day patient administration. The emergency line will still be manned if you feel you have a genuine medical emergency during this time.
Another change to the system will be how our urgent calls are dealt with. Once all the appointments have been allocated for the day, we will then each morning release some additional urgent appointments for specific patient needs, and will then release more urgent appointments after 14.00pm. Our Healthcare Navigation trained receptionists may need to ask you a few more questions to ensure you are directed to the most appropriate person to help you.
We realise that changes to familiar systems can seem unsettling for our patients, but as demand increases, necessary changes have to be put in place to ensure we maintain safe and effective ways of working.
The Partners and staff here at New Road Surgery would like to thank all our patients for their continued support, during what has been a challenging period for everyone.
Monday - 8am to 8pm
Tuesday - 7am to 6.30pm
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday - 8am to 6.30pm

The way we are working has changed considerably following government guidelines designed to reduce the transmission of coronavirus. We continue to offer consultations, but, where safe to do so, we are dealing with patients by phone or video consultation. This means reduced numbers of patients in the surgery, making it safer for the patients who do need seeing. All first contacts are by phone or online but, where necessary we will see and examine you face to face. We have had a lot of positive feedback that you think our system is working well.
We want to be certain that patients who need our help do not avoid the surgery because they fear it will put them at increased risk of Covid 19. We can reassure you all that our systems are in place to protect you (and us) at all times.
The surgery remains open 08:30 – 18:30, Monday to Friday. Please be assured we will do our best to manage all your important health needs despite the additional problems created by the Covid 19 pandemic.
You can arrange an appointment with a doctor or nurse:
1. By telephoning in the usual way.
2. By using the online consultation facility.
You cannot currently book online.
Our doctors and nurses are seeing patients every day. Many of these appointments are pre-booked several days or over a week ahead following initial phone or online consultation. However we also have the facility to see more urgent cases on the day.
Patients who suspect they may have Covid 19 should, however, contact NHS111 in the first instance (see below)
Please note that all clinicians will be wearing personal protective equipment during your consultation and you will be asked to wear a face covering and avoid touching anything.
There are a few other new rules in place which are solely designed to keep you safe. These are set out below:
1. Please attend your appointment ALONE or if the appointment is for your child only one adult should attend with the child.
2. You will only be permitted to enter the building if you have a pre-booked appointment – we are unable to offer any walk in services at the current time. Please use telephone or online consultation for initial contact or any queries.
3. Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your appointment time. Please be prepared to wait in your car until the clinician is ready to see you. This is to limit the numbers of people in the building at any time to reduce the chance of transmission. Winter is approaching and we do not want anyone to have to stand outside in bad weather waiting to be seen.
4. We are unable to offer toilet facilities at the current time as they pose a cross infection risk.
