Your GP practice is open and if you need to see a GP, please telephone us on 01702 339865. Appointments to see the GP are by invitation only following a telephone triage consultation. You can also call NHS 111. Please do not come to the Surgery unless you have an appointment. If you are asked to come to the Surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Thank you.

We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 15th July 2020. Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money. You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now. Read more about EPS on the NHS website.

From Monday 15th June 2020, patients who are attending the surgery will require to wear a face mask. We would ask that you ensure you have your own mask before entering the surgery, as we are unable to provide face masks to our patients 

Local NHS changes to how we prescribe over the counter medications for short term illness and minor ailments: please ask your local pharmacist before making an appointment; buy over-the-counter medicines for minor problems and don't forget you can call NHS 111 for health advice 24 hours a day.

We have a new Patient Participation Group area in the waiting room. Please have a look at the information and fill in the form if you would like to join the group or you can submit the website form or speak to reception to show your interest the PPG.
