Winter pressures and routine appointments

Due to the current Winter pressures coupled with the well publicised Strep A outbreak and also rapidly rising Influenza cases GP practices have been asked to prioritise urgent care.

We have therefore taken the decision temporarily suspend the booking of routine appointments until after Christmas to ensure urgent cases can be seen quickly. Routine appointments already booked will still go a head as planned at this time but, this is under regular review.

Please make sure you cancel any unwanted appointments.

We are unable to deal with routine healthcare requests via email at this time.

If you feel that your problem requires urgent attention, please contact the surgery to speak to our care navigation team.

We will review this decision regularly.

If you have concerns over Strep A you can get advice via the links below or contact the practice during our usual opening hours.
