ADJUSTED PROCESSES DUE TO COVID 19
Due to the continued Covid 19 infection threat we are changing how the practice is accessed.
Telephone Triage. Every request for a consultation will start with a telephone/video call from the GP or Nurse. The receptionist will take your details and the clinician will phone you back.
If you have a rash, wound or the symptom is visible, it can be very helpful to the clinician to see a photograph of the problem. If you are happy to, you can email a photograph before the telephone consultation to the clinical inbox at: email@example.com. (DO NOT USE THIS EMAIL TO CONTACT THE GP/NURSE)
Please include in the email your name, date of birth and the clinician the photograph is to be forwarded to.
Please note: on receipt of your photograph(s) your email will be forwarded to the clinician dealing with your problem and deleted from clinical inbox. Your photograph will also be saved to your electronic medical record. If this is not acceptable to you for any reason then please do not send a photograph.
Only medically urgent calls after 16:45. Due to increasing demand at the Practice if you require clinical advice please contact the practice as early in the day as possible. Any calls that are not medically urgent, received after 16:45 will be asked to call back the following day.
Text messaging service. Using text messages to contact you is increasingly important and useful to the way in which we are now working. Please consider signing up for this service. Further information is available here.

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
There are two parking spaces reserved for disabled people and the surgery consulting rooms are all on one level.
Off-street parking is available for patients on surgery grounds.
