On contacting the practice , you will be offered a telephone triage appointment in the 1st instance . If a face to face appt is required following this telephone consultation , this will be arranged by the clinician.  Minor Illness, Practice nurse & Phlebotomy appointments will be face to face. 

Should you be experiencing respiratory symptoms including ear/nose/throat, if possible please perform a same day Lateral Flow Test before contacting the surgery. This is to ensure that if you are offered a face to face appt that same day, we are not taking patients with Covid into the building where other patients who may be vulnerable & our own staff are unnecessarily exposed. This is a decision made by the GP Partner Team in conjunction with the Nurses for very sound clinical reasons.  

All prescriptions will be issued directly to your chosen local Pharmacy unless you specify you wish to collect from the practice. Results will continue to be obtained via the surgery results line.

Appointments telephone number is 0345 337 1150 - Option 2
