Practice Noticeboard

Non-urgent advice: Appointments Notice

Please call us if you need an urgent appointment and use our online form for anything else.

We will ask for some brief details about what you need help with and arrange for a member of our clinical team to phone you back to discuss it. Most appointments are carried out by telephone or video where safe to do so.

Telephone appointments are convenient, we can help more patients quicker, and many patients say they prefer it. You will always be offered a face to face appointment if there is a clinical need.

Non-urgent advice: COVID-19 Notice

Please continue to wear a mask if you are asked to visit the practice for an appointment and keep a safe distance from others. This keeps other vulnerable patients safe and ensures our practice team stays well and is here to help you.
