Getting the help you need

Some consultations are over the phone and via video but will assess your situation and invite you into the practice if needed.

We can arrange same-day appointments if you need urgent care but please don’t visit without an appointment. Appointments will be held in the best way to keep you safe from COVID.   

You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice – including if you have concerns about your COVID-19 symptoms. 

Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies. 

Please help reduce infections, protect the NHS and keep each other safe by following the latest rules

Online Services

You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.

Online consultations are used to contact the practice about a non-urgent medical or admin request

Get Started

You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices

Out of Hours and Emergencies

111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

In case of a life threatening emergency, please dial 999
