Easter Bank holidays - during this crisis the practice will be available Friday 10th April and Monday 13th April to treat medical emergency problems.  


Telephone Consultations:

As of 17 March 2020 the practice has moved to on the day telephone consulting appointment system. This means you will now have to call the surgery to request to speak to a GP or nurse.  The clinician will call you back the same day. Please note there are no pre-book appointments to see the GP. The receptionist will ask you for a brief message for the clinician and will ensure we have the correct telephone number, the GP will ring you back on the same day. Sometimes the GP will invite you into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment. 


New patients welcome.
