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.

Where a complaint is by a third party, and the complaint or enquiry is related to someone else, the written consent of the Data Subject (patient) is required. Where this is not possible full justification must be given.

All complaints will be acknowledged within 3 working days, and a response provided within 21 days.

If you remain dissatisfied following our response you may contact The Health Ombudsman and ask them to review your complaint.
