The reception office in Stroud is open Mondays - Fridays from 08.00 - 18.00 for telephoning and from 08.45 - 18.00 for face to face contact.
We have a range of morning and afternoon appointments available in Stroud and Tuffley.
If you feel your case is urgent and you need to be seen on the day please call as soon after 08.00 as possible. You will be put onto a list for the doctor to call back. The doctor will then telephone you. Depending on the nature of the problem they will either give advice on the phone, book you into an appointment later in the day or ask you to make a regular appointment.
We currently offer extra appointments outside of our normal working hours in an attempt to make it easier for working people to see a GP or nurse. These are on Wednesday mornings between 07.00 and 08.00.
Get the right treatment
It may not always be appropriate to see your GP. NHS Gloucestershire has published a guide to getting the right treatment, available here

The receptionists in Stroud will arrange all appointments for patients with doctors, practice nurse or midwife at both the Stroud and Tuffley surgeries.

For all therapy appointments, please contact the therapist directly.
If no appointment space is available but you feel you need to be seen immediately, the doctors will always fit you in during, or at the end of, surgery.
If you are too ill to come in to the surgery and feel you need a home visit, please telephone the reception before 10.30 am. The doctor will then contact you directly.
