Our team of GPs, Nurses, Management, Reception and Admin are here to help you.  We understand this is a difficult time for people and we want to continue to offer safe and efficient care for all our patients.  Please Help Use so we can continue to Help You. 

You can do this by:


1. Wear a Face Mask when attending the surgery (unless medically exempt).  We are doing this to help protect our staff and other patients in the surgery.  Our Receptionist does not need to wear a mask when at reception desk as we have installed perspex screens. 


2. Understanding that our telephone lines may be busier as more people are calling then coming into surgery.


3. Only call before 10.00 am Monday-Friday if you call is for a on the day urgent appointment request.  For anything non-urgent please call after 10.00am. 


4. Please give as much information as possible to our reception team when they ask you what the problem is when booking an appointment.  All of our reception team have received Care Navigation training to ensure you are signposted to the relevant team.  Our GP Partners have asked our team to triage the problem when booking appointments. 


5. Think before calling, is the GP Surgery the correct place.  Could it be something that could be treated at the pharmacy?  You can submit an

E-consult via our website for further information.

Thank you in your co-operation.
