Face coverings when using NHS services
All patients and visitors to NHS services must wear a face covering at all times. This includes hospitals, community clinics and GP services. Evidence has confirmed that face coverings can help reduce the risk of transmission if you are suffering from coronavirus, but not showing symptoms.
You can now use the NHS App to submit an eConsult. By using the App your personal information will be automatically filled in, so you don’t need to do this for each eConsult. Find out more and download the NHS App here: www.nhs.uk/app

Please be advised we are currently not registering patients at the Surgery. If you wish to register you can print the froms from our ‘New Patients’ section and post to us with a copy of the relevant ID, also found in the New Patients’ section under ‘New Registration Checklist’ on the website.
We are concerned that patients seeking information on coronavirus are being directed to call 111 rather than use NHS 111 online. NHS 111 is experiencing very high call volumes.
If you require general information on coronavirus please use this url:
For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances. These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19.
