***ONLINE CONSULTING UPDATE (19/10/20)***


Please be aware that the question in the Medical Request section:



DOES NOT mean you will have a call from a GP within 1-3 days especially if your report sent overnight or over weekend.


It is the time taken FOR US to process your report, although often this is done in 1 day


On the day reports and calls are dealt with on that day

The surgery is currently involved in providing free NHS Checks to our patients between the ages of 40 and 74.

Everyone with this age group, who has not already been diagnosed with heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes, will be invited (once every five years) to have a check to assess their risk to developing these conditions and will be given support and advice to help then reduce or manage that risk

For an appointment please contact the surgery.

If you are keen to quit, ask at your local Pharmacy and they will be happy to help
