Accessing General Medical Services

If you wish to make an appointment with the surgery please contact us by telephone.

Receptionists will ask for some information in order to direct you to the most appropriate professional.

Due to Covid-19, all requests for an appointment with the GP will receive an initial Telephone call.  Following this telephone call, the GP will decide as to whether you need to be seen Face to Face or not.  

When you request an appointment with the GP, our receptionists will ask you for a brief reason as to why you need an appointment.  This is so that they can direct you to the appropriate person within our team which includes GPs, Practice Nurses, Physiotherapist, Social worker or Mental Health Practitioner.   Or they may give you information about services or self-care options that you could access for your symptoms eg. the Minor Ailments service at the local pharmacy.

Please order your repeat prescription 7 days in advance of when it is required.

This is to allow the GP practice and Community Pharmacy time to process your prescription, to ensure you do not run out of your medicines when the GP practice or community pharmacy is closed.

Please do not order an increased supply of medicines if you do not need them. Only order a prescription for the medicines you actually require.

Acute Scripts ordered before 11 am will be ready at Reception Desk or Chemist after 2 pm on the same day.

Acute Scripts ordered after 11 am will be ready at Reception Desk or Chemist the following day after 2 pm with the exception of Emergency Prescriptions.
