From 29th May 2020, the Surgery will be introducing an online consultation service so you don't always need to come into the Practice to get our medical expertise. Why not save time and try our new online service. You can input your symptoms online and will receive a response from the Practice - usually that day, if a request is received within the online consultation daily request times. You will also have access to reliable and trustworthy self-help generic information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that may help you to avoid an appointment altogether. You can also use the system to request test results, sick notes, referral letters and medical reports.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY MESSAGES BEFORE THE 29TH OF MAY, AS THESE WILL NOT BE ACTIONED
