Contacting us during the Covid-19 Pandemic

The best way to contact the practice is by telephone. The phone lines are busy but the whole team is here doing our best to deal with patient requests. Information given to any member of the team is completely confidential.

Visits to GP practices are more limited due to the risks of transmission of Covid 19. We are doing as much as possible via telephone and video consulting.  However some people will need to be seen by a member of the clinical team and arrangements have been put in place to do this safely.

If you are asked to come in, please arrive as close to your appointment time as possible. We can only have 5 people in the waiting room at any one time.  Come on your own. Only children and disabled patients can be accompanied. Remember to wear a mask and observe 2 metre social distancing at all times. Help us to keep you safe.
