What do I do in an emergency

If you need urgent medical advice during surgery hours, please phone the surgery on 01634 573020. Please be prepared to give some information to the receptionist. If you need to see a doctor urgently when the surgery is closed please phone the surgery and listen to the recorded message providing you with out-of-hours information.

NHS 111 is a service that has been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

Whatever the day or time, if you or someone else experiences severe chest pain, loss of blood or suspected broken bones, go to your nearest Accident and emergency department or call 999.


Dr Ranweer Silhi MBBS DTD
I am a married male physician and surgeon. I now have two wonderful children. They are doctors qualified in this country. I was first registered in November 1970 at Nagpur in India, and serving the NHS in England for over 40 years.

Make the most of our Services

Please read notices posted inside the surgery and below.

Make sure you:

...are familiar with the opening times of the surgery
...find out how to arrange home visits, repeat prescriptions and urgent appointments.

  • You may not always need to see a doctor, ask what services the nurse can provide.
  • Take a list of questions with you when you see your doctor or nurse and ask appropriately to your doctor or nurse.
  • Take a friend or relative with you if necessary.
  • Interpretation services are available.
  • Tell the receptionist if you require more time to speak to the doctor so they can arrange a longer, double appointment.
  • Think twice before making an appointment - do you really need to see a doctor? Have you tried simple home treatments first?


People aged over 75 are invited to participate in an annual check-up facility. Visits may be organised for those unable to travel.
We also offer a three yearly check-up for adults aged under 75 either with the doctor or the practice nurse.


If you wish to have a chaperone present at the time of consultation, please ask at the reception desk or with the doctor in consultation.

Mobile Phone Policy

We operate a strict no mobile phone policy - please turn off mobile phones before entering building.
