Urgent Medical Problems

If you need to be seen urgently and there are no appointments available, please speak to a receptionist who will arrange for you to be seen or spoken to as appropriate. However, without an appointment this may mean you have to wait longer to see a doctor.

There is no "drop in" surgery and walking into the Practice will not guarantee you an appointment.


Self Care

Minor ailments such as cuts and grazes, sore throats and coughs can be dealt with at home


Your Local Pharmacy

Your local pharmacist can provide advice and over the counter medicines when you are suffering from a common health problem such as a cough, cold or upset tummy


Medical Help that is not an emergency

If you need medical help but it's not an emergency call 111

  • loss of consciousness
  • acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

In a serious medical emergency always call 999 or go to A&E
