Where necessary, if technology has not provided a resolution we have invited patients to the practice to further assess their condition in a Covid safe enviroment.

If you struggle with technology please telephone the practice and we will be happy to discuss how yours needs will be met by the practice.

We want to keep patients safe and as far as possible manage your problems remotely.  GPs need to minimise the footfall in their premises to ensure that as far as possible we do not put any of our staff or patients at extra risk.

You should contact the practice to regarding any concerns you have, do not ignore any ailments.
