ONLY contact NHS111 if you feel you cannot cope at home with your symptoms/your condition gets worse/your symptoms DO NOT get better after 7 days.

Covid-19 (Corona Virus) and Online Consultations using Engage Consult

To ensure that we delay the spread of Covid-19 as effectively as possible, it's ESSENTIAL that we limit face-to-face consultations to only those patients who urgently need them.

We urge all patients to contact us FIRST using Engage Consult, our online consultation system. You can give us as much detail about your problem as you feel comfortable with. If you create an account straightaway, we can also get back to you online. No more hanging on the telephone.

If you have any concerns that you may have the virus, you MUST stay at home and contact us via Engage Consult (between 07:00 and 11:00), by phone, or NHS 111

Try the new NHS App

If you're a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.

You can use the NHS App to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.

If you already use Patient Access you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.

Please be aware that, due to the current situation, it is taking longer than usual for you to be registered for this service. Please allow up to 48 hours for your registration to be completed. Thank you for you patience.

PLEASE NOTE: GP appointments are 10 minutes in duration.
