Telephone answering times are currently long – we are working on this and we thank you for your patience. Please continue to bear with us. We are facing huge levels of demand, whilst also having staff members who are sick or isolating. Please explore the website and the app to see if what you need can be requested online, such as fit notes and prescriptions.

In line with the Government’s announcement, the NHS is aiming to offer every adult the chance to book a COVID-19 booster vaccine by the end of the year. This means our practice is now prioritising the booster rollout.

As part of this, some of our routine services may be stood down temporarily to allow us to focus on protecting as many patients as possible.

We are still there for anyone who may need care for an urgent need, but would ask for patience as we support this key national priority over the coming weeks.. Please be mindful our staff are doing their best to offer high quality patient care in very challenging circumstances and we ask that you please treat us with courtesy and respect at all times.  We hope to be able to stand back up any services as soon as possible and will update this page as soon as we know more.

Please don’t forget there are many services available for you, depending on your condition and you can get advice and services related to many of these on this website.

We also ask that you consider:

  • Self-care – This is the best choice to treat minor illnesses and injuries such as hangovers, coughs, colds, grazes, small cuts or sore throats. Many of these can be treated at home, simply with over-the-counter medicines and plenty of rest.
  • Pharmacy – Pharmacists can give advice on and treat a range of symptoms. They can support you with things such as diarrhoea, earaches, painful coughs, sticky eyes, teething and rashes.
  • NHS 111 – You can access 111 online or via the telephone. This is for any urgent but non-life threatening health concerns. They will be able to signpost you to the relevant service and provide advice where appropriate, or book you in to an Urgent Treatment Centre.
  • A&E / 999 – You should only attend A&E or dial 999 in a life-threatening emergency such as severe bleeding, breathing difficulties and severe chest pain.

Disabled Access

We have step-free access, wheelchair access and a disabled WC.  There is a lift to the first floor consultation rooms. We also have an induction loop, Braille translation service and a signing service available.

Parking

Please park in the adjacent public car park which operates a pay and display system. On-site parking is only available for staff and unauthorised parking will result a parking charge notice. A camera controlled system operated by ParkingEye uses automatic number plate recognition to capture details of vehicles entering and exiting the site.

Missed Appointments

If you are unable to keep an appointment, please contact us as soon as possible so someone else can have your appointment.
