Services from the Practice

We are still open and here for you. We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are prioritising delivering of care and services based on clinical needs.

Telephone appointments are available on the day and released at 08:00. When you contact us you will be asked to provide some information about your healthcare needs.  If the clinician feels after speaking to you that there is a medical need to see you face to face they will arrange an appointment for you.

If you are invited into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery. If you have a disability or condition which means you cannot wear a face covering or cannot communicate with someone who is wearing a face mask, or require other adjustments before your appointment, please let the surgery know ahead of your arrival.
