Although your first contact will be via a telephone consultation or econsult the practice is seeing patients face to face and patients will be booked in to see a GP face to face if needed when reviewed by the health professional during the triage call.
Please note that if you wish to be seen face to face please tell the health professional during the triage call. Many thanks

Please do not turn up to the practice unless you have been told to do so. If you have been told to come to the surgery you will be asked to wear a face covering. The front doors will be locked and will be opened by a receptionist as needed. Please be patient with our receptionists. It is important to turn up at your appointment time. as in line with social distancing rules the surgery must limit the number of patients in the waiting room.
The government recommendation from the 15th June is that all visitors and outpatients must wear face coverings at all times. From 15 June 2020 we request that all members of the public when attending practice premises wear a face covering. A face covering may be anything from a mask to a scarf or anything suitable to cover your nose and mouth. The practice will not be supplying face masks and you will be required to bring your own.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
