Urgent advice: IMPORTANT NOTICE

From Monday 22nd April the practice will be CLOSED between 12:30pm and 1:30pm each day.

We want to reassure you that this causes no loss to our weekly appointment numbers offered. We have simply moved things around in the day. The emergency GP will still be available to contact on the mobile number if you have an urgent health concern that cannot wait until we re-open at 13:30.

All teams will still be working hard. The GPs will be completing home visits for housebound patients, onward referrals, checking and analysing of results and all other administration associated with managing the healthcare of our patients. The nursing team will be carrying out the administrative side of chronic disease management, such as diabetes, COPD and heart disease. The administrative team will be processing prescription requests, dealing with all incoming and outgoing communications from hospitals, carers, and third-party sectors as well as actioning requests from the GPs to and on behalf of patients.

This time will also allow us to receive regular training and communications as a team, to enable us to continue to deliver the best possible care and service to our patients.

Please call the practice after 1:30pm when we will be happy to help with your enquiry.

When we are closed during 12.30pm-1.30pm each day, if you have a medical emergency, please call 07762 461164 or if you have a life-threatening emergency, please call 999.

When We Are Closed

Out-of-hours services are provided by NHS24 on 111. The service is available when the surgery is closed.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
