We are now offering eConsultations. You can use eConsult to request GP advice without the need for an appointment. You can ask us about your health symptoms, conditions or possible treatments. You can even request things like sick notes and fill in our long term condition reviews such as asthma and hypertension. You will need to complete a simple form about your problem or request, your GP will then decide on the best treatment for you, the practice will then respond with advice, a prescription or an appointment.

We are currently operating a total triage system for appointments due to the current Coronavirus outbreak and have changed the way we make appointments. Any patients requiring a face to face appointment will be triaged and screened via telephone usually in the morning. If a face to face appointment is necessary this will be arranged for the afternoon.
We are now offering video consultations at the doctors discretion, initially we were using Qdoctor but found it to be slightly tricky to navigate. We are now using accuRx, to join a video consultation all you need to do it click a link which will be sent via text message. To find out more information on how to do this please click here.

The doctor will visit you at home if you are unfit to travel to the surgery. Please try to call before 10:00 am so that the doctor can plan his rounds. It would be greatly appreciated if you could come to the surgery whenever possible as the doctor can see three or four patients at the surgery in the same time it takes to make one home visit.
You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
Cancel an Appointment
It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment by phone, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have defaulted from your appointment. Persistent defaulters maybe removed from the list.
