IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - Due to unprecedented workload pressure, we are unable to accept any new registrations until further notice. We would also encourage all of our patients, wherever possible, to use the local services available: Community Pharmacy for minor ailments, NHS 111 and Local Minor Injury Units.

PHARMACY FIRST - Almost all pharmacies now offer the Pharmacy First service, giving advice and, if needed, NHS medicines to treat seven common health conditions - and all without the need for a GP appointment. Ask your local pharmacy for more information about this free NHS service.


Home Visits

If at all possible we prefer to treat patients in the surgery but are happy to visit those who are too sick to attend the Health Centre.

If you feel you need a doctor to visit then please try to telephone by 11.00am with your request The doctor may want to phone you back, as it may be possible to deal with your problem over the phone.

We will always visit:

The terminally ill, the truly bedbound (where travel to the surgery by car would cause a deterioration in the patients condition or result in unacceptable discomfort or pain) and anyone with severe breathlessness or pain.

Local guidelines state that a visit is unlikely to be required in the following cases:

Common symptoms of childhood: fevers, coughs, colds, earache, headache, diarrhoea/vomiting and most cases of abdominal pain.

Adults with common problems of cough, sore throat, ‘flu-like’ symptoms, chronic back pain, dental problems, and lost prescriptions/tablets.
