Important information for patients about GP appointments.

To protect our patients, staff and local community we are changing the way patients access our services.  Patients with internet access please use the eConsult function below and we will be in contact with you by 6pm the following working day.  For more urgent queries please call the practice. You may have to wait a long time on the telephone. If you have an emergency you should still call 999.

Prescriptions. We are not taking prescription requests at the practice.  You can use your local pharmacy, or online access to make requests for current repeat prescriptions. Medications which have not been ordered routinely for some time will not be issued via your pharmacy and should be requested via eConsult so that they can be properly reviewed.  Just-in-case medications will only be issued in exceptional circumstances.

Fit Notes. Patients should continue to self certify for the first 7 days of any illness.  We will only issue fit notes for patients who have medical symptoms. Patients self isolating for 14 days, who cannot work from home should use the https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note service to obtain a note for their employer.  Patients should discuss any sick pay concerns with their employers.
