Welcome to Lockwood Surgery

Appointments can be made online, over the phone, in person. Routine appointments with the Doctor are usually of 10 minutes duration.  Practice Nurse appointments are of variable duration dependent upon the reason for the appointment. Appointments can be made for face to face or telephone consultations.

It's very helpful if you discuss the reason for your appointment with Reception as this will help to ensure you receive the right service with the right person at the right time. Same day appointments are available every day if your medical problem genuinely cannot wait until the next available routine appointment.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ALL INCOMING AND OUTGOING TELEPHONE CALLS MAY BE RECORDED FOR TRAINING AND MONITORING PURPOSES.
