Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak the practice doors are currently closed and you should contact us by phone, during our usual opening hours, if you need medical assistance. A telephone consultation with the most appropriate clinician will be arranged for you in the first instance.
The receptionist will ask you for a brief detail of your symptoms and a call will be arranged with the most appropriate clinician. All calls are prioritised.
Please refer to NHS Inform for information on COVID 19 including how to book an appointment or have a testing kit sent out to you.The website can be translated into various languages.

If your symptoms are severe or worsening and you require medical attention please contact NHS 24 on 111.
We are no longer taking prescription requests over the phone.
Anyone requiring dressing changes, staple or stitch removal will be given an appointment with the practice nurse as normal. Please call reception for an appointment.
There will be no open access for blood tests and injections. Please call reception and request a booked appointment.
