Due to the current COVID 19 crisis we have been forced to run services differently to protect patients and staff.
The surgery is still open but the doors are closed to allow controlled access and online booking of appointments has been suspended.
All appointments will be by telephone or video consultation initially with follow on face to face appointments arranged only if absolutely necessary.
Please do not attend the surgery if you do not have an appointment.
All prescriptions will be sent to your nominated chemist. Do not come to collect them from the surgery. Sick lines will be posted to you.
For information about video consultations see below
Advice for patients with symptoms of Coronavirus or queries about Coronavirus
The symptoms of COVID are a high temperature above 37.8, a new cough (usually persistent and dry) and breathlessness
All patients with queries or mild symptoms of Coronavirus should go to NHS Inform website where all the relevant advice is available.
If you need a sick line to self isolate this is available direct from this website you do not need a GP sick line. Click here for direct link
Patients who are more unwell with symptoms of COVID should contact NHS 24 on 111, day or night rather than the GP surgery.
Callers to the 111 helpline will be assessed and, if necessary, transferred to a local community hub staffed by clinicians from across the healthcare system to ensure patients get the best possible advice.
Depending on their assessment, patients may be given advice to help them continue self-isolating at home or be given an appointment to attend a local assessment centre for further treatment.

You can connect ahead of time to check that everything works by clicking on the link above - the system will test your connection speed, camera and mic.
You will need to give your name and a contact phone number and will then be directed to a virtual waiting room and the doctor or nurse will connect to you when they are free.
