Please do not attend the surgery if you have any Covid symptoms you need to stay home and book a Covid test. You must do this even if you have been vaccinated.

As we navigate out of the pandemic and adapt to the new normal the surgery will continue to a operate a telephone triage service. This is to manage the current high demand and to facilitate the timeliest response for our patients. If after talking to the Dr they feel or you feel that you would like a face to face consultation the Dr can arrange this with you.

We have a number of pre booked appointment slots which will allow you to book a routine, non urgent appointment with your Dr (usually within 2/3 weeks). The majority of our appointment slots are on the day slots which we open at 8.30 each morning. Due to the current high demand these are often filled very quickly when our phone lines open each morning. We also offer next day appointments to facilitate those patients who were unable to book an on the day slot but again these fill up very quickly.

We like to keep our patients informed and believe that communication is key. We would like to share the information below to highlight how extremely busy the practice is and how hard everyone is working to provide the best service to our patients.
This information has been gathered over the last 3 months:

On average each week between our Drs, Nurses and Practice pharmacist over 920 telephone consultations and over 510 face to face consultations are carried out.

Our reception team answer over 1400 calls, send over 1500 text messages to our patients and issue over 1600 scripts for the Drs to authorise and sign.

This is just part of the work that is carried out each day by the surgery team but hopefully gives an insight into the current high demand and reassurance that we are working hard to try and meet the demand.
