Appointments

To make an appointment please visit our digital Consulting Room or call us between 08.00 and 18.30.  When you are booking an appointment a day or more ahead it is better to ring when the telephone lines are less busy, after 10:30 in the morning.

Telephone Consultations

The doctors are very willing to offer telephone consultations. Please see our Telephone Consultations page for more information.

Extended Hours

The extended hours surgeries between 18:30 and 19:15 on a Wednesday and 07:15 and 08:00 on a Thursday are intended for those patients who work and therefore find it difficult to get to the surgery during normal working hours.

Teenager Appointments

Teenagers may make appointments on their own with either of the doctors or the practice nurses about any health-related matter including contraception, smoking, drugs and alcohol. As for all patients, confidentiality is guaranteed.

If you have been asked to make another appointment by the doctor or nurse please do this before leaving the surgery. You can book with any GP.

You have a right to see any GP but we suggest trying to maintain continuity of care whenever possible by coming back to see the GP who arranged tests or treatments needing review and making these appointments before you leave the surgery.

Health Visitor or Midwife Appointments

Appointments with the health Visitor may be made by calling 0300 247 0090 or by visiting their drop-in clinic on the 1st Tuesday of the month at the Nadder Centre in Tisbury from 10am – 12noon. Appointments with the midwife may be made through the surgery or by direct contact with the midwives at Salisbury Hospital on 01722 425185.

Quality of Care

We aim to provide you with care that is high quality, easily accessible and with continuity (seeing the same person). We are continually reviewing what we are doing to always give you the best possible care.

Quality is difficult to define but our patient surveys on this site show what you think of us and we have won a number of local and national awards for quality.

We offer same day access to a GP, irrespective of the medical urgency, with telephone and face to face consultations including the ‘never full’ surgery at 11:30 every morning.  We have late evening and early morning surgeries for working patients, and you can book appointments for months ahead.

Our nursing hours are double the local average with longer appointments so urgent cases, including minor injuries can be seen almost immediately.  We also dispense medicines to most patients.

We have three GPs with a female clinician (GP or nurse) available every working day. You can choose who to see but we like patients to see the same person during any episode of care. The GPs discuss the best way to help their patients on a daily basis and we all work in similar ways in line with national best practice.

We aim to do as much as we can with just one visit to the surgery building and whenever possible will provide the care ourselves to save our patients long trips elsewhere.

Out of Hours

Outside surgery hours and on weekends and Bank Holidays, emergency cover is provided by Medvivo.  Calls to the surgery will be automatically redirected to 111 who triage all the emergency calls and direct the request to the right provider.
