Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
Your GP practice is open and if you need to see your GP please ring us at 8am for URGENT appointments and 2pm for NON-URGENT appointments. Our opening hours are 8am-6.30pm Monday to Friday.
You can also call NHS 111 or go to the NHS 111 website, Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment. If you are waiting for a check-up, please be assured we will be in touch.
Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, you are required to wear a face covering as per government guidelines. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
If you would like a chaperone present during your consultation, please advise the receptionist when booking your appointment or you can inform the GP or nurse before the consultation commences and they will arrange for a chaperone to be present.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. Every month in excess of 100 patients fail to attend their appointments.
