Our practice aim is to respond to all NON-clinical or administrative queries within 48 - 72 working hours wherever possible however due to safe working guidelines this may not always be possible.

Our online triage system is in place to enable patients with digital access to submit an online triage request requesting advice from a healthcare professional as an additional way of contacting the practice.

Patients who do not have access to the internet or feel unable to complete the triage form are encouraged to continue to contact the surgery as normal where a member of our team will be happy to either assist you to complete the form or complete on your behalf.

Our online e-consultation service will let you seek advice and guidance for routine medical enquiries, arrange FIT notes.  Download the NHS App to review your recent test results and investigations and consultations.
