We appreciate your patience and understanding at this difficult time.

We understand that everybody has had to make significant changes to the way they live and work.

  • Until further notice, ALL initial appointments with the GP or Clinical Practitioner will be carried out by telephone.
  • You can still book a routine appointment but please DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT. Please PHONE FIRST and speak with a member of the care navigation team. 
  • If the GP or Clinical Practitioner then feels you need a face-to-face assessment, this will be booked during your telephone appointment.
  • Some appointments will still need to be carried out by a face-to-face appointment. However, please PHONE FIRST to book one of these appointments and do not attend the surgery without a confirmed appointment.

Face-to-face appointments will include:

  • Blood tests 
  • Wound dressings 
  • Immunisations 
  • Cervical Screening 
  • Face-to-face appointments that the GP or Clinical Practitioner decides AFTER speaking with you on the phone
