Routine Appointments with a GP

If you need a routine appointment, you can call the surgery reception and book a routine /telephone  consultation with a GP but this will be at least two weeks  in advance or you can book a telephone consultation online using the nhs app . If you are unable to wait this length of time please complete an eConsult (on-line consultation), which will allow the practice team to triage your request and handle your query or problem in the most effective time appropriate manner. 

Urgent Appointments

For your appointments, you will be asked to complete an online consultation (eConsult). This will allow the practice team to triage your request and deal with your query or problem in the most effective time appropriate manner.

Online Consultation – eConsult
