Out of Hours

Your GP out-of-hours services are the responsibility of the Clinical Commissioning Group. If you or your family need urgent medical care when the surgery is closed, please phone 111 for the out-of-hours services.

Home Visits

If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit. A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to see a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.


Urgent Appointments

If you have a problem which you feel needs attention urgently on the same day and cannot await a routine consultation, please phone the Receptionist, who will take your details and ask a clinician to phone you back, and they will then deal with your problem in the most appropriate manner.


Distance Selling Pharmacies


We have a number of patients who use distance selling pharmacies, such as Pharmacy2u, to order their medication.


Where this is the case, we send the prescription on to the distance selling pharmacy when requested by post as we do not do the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS).   Should medication then not be received from the distance selling pharmacy, this needs to be taken up with them directly.  Your surgery will not be able to help at this stage.


 Please note that distance selling pharmacies like this are only allowed to deal with patients by post, telephone or internet, not in person.


If you or any members of your household have symptoms of Coronavirus please use the NHS 111 online tool in the first instance to check for relevant advice:

If you are unable to access the online service, please call 111.

We have made changes to our appointment system to try and minimise the impact of the virus on vulnerable patients and on our staff. 

Please do not come to your surgery unless you have first spoken to us on the phone or are collecting medication or a prescription. ALL appointments are now telephone appointments in the first instance.

If you do need to come the the surgery please ensure that you have a face covering with you as you will need to wear one.


We are making further changes to our appointment system as of 3rd August 2020 in order to start accommodating more routine or pre-bookable appointments as lockdown eases. Please see details: 3rd Aug 2020 Appointment changes.



The flu vaccination programme is going to be more difficult to deliver this year due to social distancing requirements and therefore we will be running things quite differently. Significant planning and additional resource is required.
We are working through high priority patients first. All patients  require a booked appointment rather than our usual drop in clinics. We are inviting patients in via letter or phone call.
Therefore, if you are eligible for a flu vaccination please await your invitation (which may be via phone call or post), where you will receive further guidance on booking your appointment.
The government has announced that this year over 50’s without any health conditions that would usually make them eligible for a flu vaccination are eligible for vaccination this year. The extra vaccines to cover these additional patients are being sourced centrally and are only likely to be available for use by late November. Therefore if you are between 50 – 64 and not in an 'at risk' group, please do not anticipate being invited for your vaccination until later in the year.

ARE YOU REGISTERED WITH THE PRACTICE - do we have your correct details?

Sometimes we need to contact our registered patients, so it is important that our records are up to date. Please can patients let their surgery know if their telephone number or address changes.
