Unfortunately we have a GP and our Practice Manager out with Covid today and our ANP out with urgent family responsibilities.

We will do our best to provide an appointment to any patient who's need is urgent and must be consulted today.  Please help by being patient on the phones, in reception and ensure you arrive on time for any appointments.

It might be that following the triage process we are unable to offer you an appointment today.  We understand this might be frustrating but, please help us to manage the most urgent needs today by accepting the care we can offer.

Thank you for your understanding,
