Please see links below that may help you decide if you need to book an appointment

To update you (16th March 2020)-we are offering  telephone consultations  in preference to face to face appointments. We are also developing the ability to do video consultations. Our receptionists will be asking about cough or fever. If you feel you need to be assessed face to face a clinician will speak to you before making the appointment. These measures are for the protection of our patients and staff. We are continuing routine bloods tests for medication monitoring for now but will keep this under review. Thank you for your understanding - our staff are working hard to adapt our service to meet our patient’s needs during the current dynamic situation. We wanted to let all our patients know that as from this morning- the 11th March we will be calling all patients who request a same day appointment. This is to reduce the risk of exposure to Coronavirus to our patients and staff. We are also moving to telephone consultations where at all possible for routine appointments. Messages will be going out to all patients with a booked appointment to offer to convert this to a phone consultation. Please note that due to the way the system is currently configured you will still get a reminder text. We will try to change this moving forward.
Please do not ‘walk in’ requesting an appointment and make sure only well people collect regular medications. Thank you for helping us maintain the best service we can under the current circumstances.
