COVID UPDATE

We still ask that you do not come to the surgery unless you have a pre arranged appointment with one of our clinicians. At the moment we are still unable to offer routine face to face appointments however we are able to offer phone appointments for on- going, routine issues. Please note that you may have to wait a few days, especially to speak to a specific doctor.

If you require urgent medical advice please call the surgery at 8am to arrange a call back from the GP that day. Our reception team will ask for a brief description of your symptoms this is so we can prioritise those with more urgent need. They may also direct you to another clinician or your local pharmacy who may be able to deal with your issue quicker and appropriately.

All GP and physio appointments will be triaged via telephone and you may be asked to email in pictures or arrange a face to face or video consultation, Please use the link below if you are given a video consultation.      

Our nurses and health care assistant's are now able to offer most services so please call the surgery to arrange an appointment if you had your appointment cancelled or postponed due to the outbreak.

Please do not attend surgery for any reason if you have any coronavirus related symptoms instead call 111 for advice.

Finally we do ask that if you need to attend the surgery you wear a face covering unless exempt, Our reception team will ask you to wear one please follow the instructions given by them. Those who do not comply may be asked to leave.
