To maintain a safe service and adhere to social distancing rules access to both sites is restricted. Access to waiting areas are via intercom system and are for pre-booked appointments only as we need to control the footfall within our premises due to social distancing rules.  

From Monday 16th March all new appointments booked with a GP will be telephone consultations. Should a clinician feel you need a face to face consultation an appointment time will be given.  As we are experiencing a higher volume of calls, if you are unable to reach the Practice via telephone then please use our eConsult system. 

Fitnotes are not required for the first 7 days of absence from work. If you need an isolation note for your employer these can be obtained from
