Contacting the Surgery by Phone - a Polite Notice

We have received a number of comments about the length of time our patients are having to wait on the phone to get through to the surgery.

We have, at our patient's request, removed the 'number of estimated minutes' that you will be in the queue from the answer announcement, as it is impossible to get this absolutely accurate.

We have increased the number of receptionists answering the phones, and do not close the telephone lines at lunchtimes.

The volume of calls into the Practice has increased significantly over the last few weeks, as have the length of telephone conversations we are having due to the necessary information that our team has to confirm, during the pandemic

In addition, we are entering the flu season and the new University term, and we are doing everything possible to keep our patients and our staff safe and well, and maintain the excellent patient care that we are known for

We would ask that you please remain patient Patients.

Thank you

Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

                             With immediate effect for the safety of patients and staff all appointments will be telephone only - if your GP feels you need to be seen face to face, they will arrange that with you.

The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of patients and staff which may mean your patient experience is subject to change.
The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is to stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
• a high temperature or
• a new continuous cough
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or a hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
• you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
• your condition gets worse
• your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
Stay At Home advice can be found here.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
Information remains subject to regular change and updates. More information can be found on the NHS website here

Delivering the highest quality care to our local community.


DoctorLink is our new online service where you can undertake a symptom assessment before booking an appointment.

The symptom assessment will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.

The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether self care; a pharmacy; a nurse; emergency care or your GP.

If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at your GP practice, you simply click on the 'request an appointment' button.

Once the request has been submitted, you will be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment if appropriate within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker). 

The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment. You will need to register and create an account.
