You can use our online services for ordering medication and for getting medical information. It is not possible to book appointments online at the moment as you have to be telephone triaged first - this is for your safety and ours and to ensure you are booked appropriately.
Please do not book a face to face GP/ANP appointment or attend your GP Practice if you or anyone in your household have symptoms associated with COVID-19.
The practice is now offering in excess of 50% of all GP/ANP appointments as face to face
If you need urgent medical assistance when the surgery is closed please call 111 who will advise you accordingly.
Our telephone team are instructed by the GPs to ask you for the nature of your problem to establish who best to book you with or to re-direct you. This is to make best use of the services & appointments that we have available and not to be deliberately obstructive. It is part of a National Programme called Care Navigation - click here for more information.
