Practice Information

Contrary to some recent misleading media reports your GP surgery has remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and remains so.

However, we ask that you do not turn up at the surgery without an appointment. Your request for an appointment will be assessed via telephone or on line by a senior clinician to assess what may be the most appropriate way of dealing with your problem. Face to face appointments have always been available if necessary.

We have extensive measures in place to ensure your and our safety and pre screening appointments is an integral part of this. If you are asked to come into the surgery we would ask that you wear a face covering and santise your hands on entering the premises.

Please call us if you need an appointment or see information on our page about our e-consult service.
