Please do not visit the GP practice without an appointment or by prior agreement– unless you are visiting the dispensary

 

Instead please telephone the Practice or use the eConsult link below

You can speak to a GP or nurse over the phone or have a video consultation if appropriate

If a doctor or nurse does need to see you in person then you will be given an appointment to attend the Practice.

The Doctor's phone-in times are as follows:

  • Monday to Friday 8.30 to 9.00am and 3.30 to 4.00pm
  • Saturday 8.30 to 9.00am

Please come on time to your booked appointment and come alone if possible

Please do not come into the surgery if you think you may have Coronavirus, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.

Face coverings

To help limit the spread of infection we are asking for all patients aged 12 and over to wear a face covering when they come into the Practice.

Thank you once again for your support and understanding as we all adapt to a new way of working.

Clare Stickland - Practice Manager

Accidents and Injuries

If you are unlucky enough to have an accident of any sort it's always a good idea to phone us here at Surgery. The Doctors and Nurses are happy to assess injuries and give advice. We can treat most minor trauma injuries saving you a trip to Accident & Emergency and perhaps a long wait.

We are also happy to assess and see if you need an x-ray if you think you may have broken something.
During our opening hours, there is always a Doctor available. Speak to our Receptionists, and they will be pleased to help.

What to do in an EMERGENCY

During Surgery opening hours:  Ring the Surgery on 01305 848333 

Out of hours:  Always ring 111.  This is the new NHS number for all urgent calls. Calls are free from landlines and mobiles.


The links on this website all come from trusted sources but if you are unsure about any  medical matters please contact your doctor for advice.
