To use Online Consult to contact your Doctor and get health advice: 

Appointments - To ensure that our patients and staff are not put at any unnecessary risk we are assessing all pre-booked 'face to face' appointments.  You will be questioned before entering the building (our inner door is locked) but you will be able to speak with staff via the reception hatch.  If you are asked to attend the practice you will be given a mask to wear during your attendance and will also be directed to enter by a different door.

We have suspended all online face to face appointment bookings; you can still continue to book a telephone consultation on-line.   Please ensure that you have given us your up to date telephone details.


Prescription requests – we are taking telephone prescription requests from those that have self-isolated or are in the announced vulnerable risk groups. Please ensure that you have an allocated pharmacy to process your prescription. We still recommend online requesting and email requests too.


Please also be aware that we will be sending text messages to those that have pre-booked appointments and you may also receive further details via text messaging. Please ensure that we have your up to date telephone contact details.



Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back

  • a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

Read the NHS advice about staying home, including how long to isolate for.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

  • your condition gets worse

  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Use the 111 coronavirus service

Contact NHS111 on-line services , stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.
