Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how we are running appointments will be different. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
Four ways to seek healthcare advice from a GP
- Call reception to discuss a face-to-face or virtual (telephone or video) appointment
- Visit eConsult to fill in a confidential online form to receive a response before the end of the next working day
- Call NHS 111 or go online to seek advice
- Download the NHS App to order repeat prescriptions, book appointments and check your symptoms
You may be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what appointment would be most appropriate for you. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
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.

You may speak to whichever doctor you prefer, but it is normally best to speak to the same doctor for on going problems as this helps continuity and avoids you having to tell your story several times to different people.
Working within our current staffing capacity we are doing our best to ensure that you have access to additional appointments outside of these hours. As a result you may be offered an early morning or evening appointment. If this is something you would prefer please ask about availability when booking an appointment
The surgery has excellent transport links, and getting to the surgery is patient’s responsibility. There are good bus links to the health centre and also Dial-a-Ride can be accessed to provide transport.
If you cannot keep an appointment, please let us know as soon as possible, as wasted appointments prevent other patients from being seen. It is also important that you try to arrive on time for your appointment.
