If you have symptoms COVID 19 please do not attend the practice.

You DO NOT need to see or speak to a GP or Nurse to confirm this diagnosis but, should arrange a test either online at or by calling 119.
Patients are advised to stay at home for 10 days and self-isolate. 
You are likely to get better with self management but, if you feel worse or do not get better then you should visit NHS 111 on line or phone 111.
ONLY COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU HAVE BE ASKED TO DO SO BY A CLINICIAN. Telephone and video consultations are available for patients with clinicians and if a patient needs to be seen they will be asked to attend the surgery and given clear instructions on how to do so safely.

GP Appointments

We encourage our patients to see or speak with their own GP. When contacting the surgery you will be asked for some medical information by the Care Navigation team to allow them to sign post you to the most appropriate service. Your GP can offer both face to face and telephone appointments. The majority of clinicians appointments are 10 minute duration. We ask that you try to observe the "one appointment, one problem" ethos. We strive to deal with each medical problem to the highest standard and this proves to be impossible if we are asked to deal with a number of problems in one appointment slot.

Nurse Appointments

Our Practice Nurses are qualified in specific specialist areas.
They offer appointments for Asthma, Diabetes, COPD, Sexual Health, Travel & Contraception. Practice nurses complete annual reviews, diagnose conditions and offer further appointments to help you manage your care.

Clinic Appointments

We are expanding our multi- disciplinary team and are proud to offer our patients appointments with a range of new specialists such as our Back & Joint pain clinic with our Chiropractor, Hearing Services with an Audiologist and Social Prescribing with our Social Prescriber.
Please speak to our reception team for more information.
