Routine Clinic Times

Monday – Friday
Mornings – 9.00 am to 12 pm
Evenings – 3.00 pm – 5 pm


All surgeries are by appointment only. We will always see you on the same day if your problem is urgent. For routine matters please book an appointment as far in advance as possible and always cancel if you cannot attend by calling us or using our online consultation tool.

Test Results

To obtain the results of tests and investigations, please telephone personally after 2pm. Some results require clarification and you may be asked to telephone again, speak to the doctor or make an appointment. You can also use the NHS App.

Home Visits

If you are too ill to attend the surgery please telephone for a visit before 10.30am. Our doctors typically see four patients in the practice it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the practice if at all possible. Lack of transport is not a reason for requesting a house visit. We visit housebound patients whenever possible.

Emergency Out of Hours services

Should you require an emergency doctor when the surgery is closed (6:30pm – 8.00am Monday – Thursday and 6:30 pm Friday – 8.00am Monday, we are closed at Weekends.) your telephone call to the surgery will be automatically diverted to the out of hours service. The telephone number for the Out-of-Hours service is now 111. Your call will be handled by someone who will take your details and one of several things may happen:

  • If it is very urgent an ambulance may be called
  • For the majority of problems which only require advice there will be a doctor available
  • Should you actually need to see a doctor, a time will be arranged for you to attend either the local Primary Care Centre at Hereford
  • On occasions a home visit may be necessary for those too ill to attend the centre and a visit will be arranged.

The minor injury unit at Ledbury Community Hospital is for accidents and injuries and they can be contacted on 01531 – 632488. Should the nurses based at the unit be unable to deal with your problem you may be asked to attend the Out of Hours Centre at Hereford or be transferred to the County Hospital in Hereford.

For RNID typetalk text phone users if you need to contact the Out of Hours Service the number is listed in the ‘Disabled Patients’ section of the leaflet.

Seeing a Doctor

Expressing a preference – providing you have been accepted for inclusion on the practice list, you may express a preference to receive services from a particular doctor or nurse, either generally or in relation to a particular condition. If you wish to do this, please write to the practice manager, who will ensure that your preference(s) will be recorded in your records. We will endeavor to comply with your request but there may be occasions when we may not be able to do so.


10 minutes is the NHS general practice standard. This is very, very difficult for the clinicians and for you, the patients, especially if there are complex issues. We do limit appointments to one problem – this can be frustrating but if we rush, we’ll make mistakes. One of the most problematical statements a patient will make at the end of a consultation is, ‘Just a quick question, doctor…’ It never is. 

Please when booking try and remember “one appointment, one problem”. If you need a longer appointment, we can arrange this, you’ll just need to ask for this when booking your appointment if you’re wanting to discuss a few issues.
