Before booking an appointment with one of our clinicians, it may be worth taking a look at our self-referrals to check if a surgery appointment is needed for the service you require.

In both Yorkley and Bream we operate an appointment system for all consultations. You can make an appointment at either surgery.

How to make an appointment

You can make an appointment in the following ways:

If you wish to call the practice to make an appointment, please contact the surgery between 08:30 – 13:00 and 14:30 – 17:00.

Some extra early morning and evening doctors surgeries will be available for those who find it difficult to attend the surgery during the day.

Due to latest Coronavirus (Covid-19) advice we are changing the way we are working

We are no longer booking routine appointments for the foreseeable future and the daily walk in emergency clinic has been changed.

If you feel you need to see a doctor or a nurse please do not come to the surgery until you have spoken to a doctor or nurse over the phone and they have agreed that it is safe and sensible to do so.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this difficult time.

Emergency Calls

08:00-18:30 weekdays ring 01594 562 437, option 1.

Improved Access/Extended Hours to GP And Nurse Appointments

Did you know that there are now extra GP and nurse appointments during normal hours and additional appointments at one of the Forest of Dean surgeries between 18:30 and 20:00 on weekdays and also on Saturday mornings?

This is part of the Improved Access/Extended Hours Scheme organised between the Forest surgeries.

Please contact reception for appointment times or visit for more information.


If you are unable to keep an appointment please let us know using our online triage as soon as possible, this may enable someone else to be seen.
