Social prescribing

Social prescribing is a way for local agencies to refer people to a link worker. Link workers give people time, focusing on 'what matters to me' and taking a holistic approach to people's health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.  Please call the practice to find out how you can be referred to this service.

Pharmacy Services

For certain conditions, we can refer you to the community pharmacy scheme, please call the practice to arrange a referral. The pharmacy will contact you within 2 hours with an appointment time.  If you do not pay for your prescriptions, you will not pay for your treatment if you have a community pharmacy referral made by the practice.

Practice Services

Appointment Requests

Demand is increasing for appointments, to provide a safe service to our patients you will be asked questions about your medical condition and the reason for your appointment to enable our GPs to prioritise and you may be referred to other services or team members suitable to your needs. 

Extended Access 

We now have an extension of our current services from 6:30pm. You may be offered one of these appointments for an ANP, GP or Nurse.  

Online Consultation 

An online consultation is an online form you can submit to the practice for non urgent issues.  The form is then reviewed by a member of the team and dealt with by the most appropriate person in the practice.  Your issues (clinical or administrative) may be dealt with over the phone, via a text message (referral to services, presciptions etc.) or in some cases you may need a face to face appointment. 

Face to face appointment 

Face to face appointments are a traditional way of having contact with a clinician.  These appointments are reserved for those who require a physical examination.  Appointments are given out based on clinical need and clinical priority. 

Telephone appointment 

Telephone appointments are used for patients who do not need a physical examination or for review/triage purposes. 

Video appointment  

You may be offered a video appointment if you have access to a smart phone.
