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.

Disputes with employers. We cannot give opinions on whether or not is safe for employees to return to work - this is a matter for you and your employer.  The NHS does not provide occupational health services for employers.
