In view of the increased concern with COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) we will be changing our appointment booking systems with immediate effect. This is to ensure we reduce the risk of transmission and maintain a safe environment for all patients and staff associated with the practices.

We are now moving to a telephone first system for those requesting an ‘on the day appointment’. Patients will be triaged by a clinician BY TELEPHONE. If patients need to be seen in the practice, an appointment will be arranged by the doctor or nurse. This may not be at your usual practice, but the clinician who sees you will have full access to you electronic patient record. If you are asked to visit the surgery please ensure you wear a face mask or have face covering to use, this is to protect yourself and others who may be in the surgery at the same time.

If you wish to make a routine appointment for a matter unrelated to Coronavirus

  • PLEASE REFRAIN FROM COMING TO YOUR GP PRACTICE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT IN PERSON
  • DO contact the GP Surgery via telephone of use our eConsult service via the above link. Please tell the reception teams whether you would like a telephone consultation, video consultation or a face-to-face consultation. The team will be asking patients a set of questions prior to making appointments to ensure patients are directed to the appropriate healthcare professional or service.
  • FOR TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS Please contact the reception team to discuss.
  • FOR FACE-TO-FACE CONSULTATIONS, due to the need to answer questions prior to making an appointment, online booking has been suspended for the time being.
  • FOR ONLINE ACCESS TO HEALTH RECORDS AND ONLINE PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS, there is no change from previously. Please contact the reception teams for information how to register for online access if you do not already have this.
