To prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVD-19), we are  moving all requests for appointments to a telephone triage system.

After the doctors call, patients who need to be seen in person will be given a face to face appointment at the surgery.

Alongside telephone, video, face to face appointment we now have online consultations.
