COVID-19 IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Following advice from NHS England, we have taken the precaution of limiting visitors to the practice and are no longer offering face to face appointments. All appointments booked will be telephone calls from a GP or nurse, and if they decide you should be seen, this will be arranged for you.
If you are asked to visit the surgery, please ring the bell on arrival.
In order to limit footfall and encourage as many as possible to stay at home, we are no longer accepting repeat medication requests in paper format Please phone us for details on how to register for on-line access and order your medication electronically.
Please consider using eConsult to contact your GP - information available below.
In some cases, your GP may wish to conduct a video consultation using AccuRx which is easy to use and does not require you to download an app. We will send you a text message with a link to click - you just need to enable your microphone and camera.
We would like to thank all our patients for their kindness and understanding during this uncertain time. Our phone lines are very busy - please bear with us and we will answer your call as soon as we are able.
