The GPs are working differently to avoid unnecessary visits to the surgery. GP’s are triaging patients first by telephone, if a face to face is needed the GP will arrange.

We also offer routine telephone/video consultations in the evening and at weekends  via PushDoctor.

You can get in touch using an Online Consultation (eConsult) and you will be contacted by the surgery within 2 working days of submitting your request. If you need a sick note please request one via eConsult or email/writing to the practice with full information.   

Stay safe.
