Please be aware we are experiencing a very high volume of calls at 8:00 every morning, especially on a Monday.
If you are calling regarding a routine matter that doesn't require medical attention on the day( Blood tests results, booking routine appointments like GP follow up appointments or annual reviews), please call us after 2pm. If you require medical attention on that day, please wait to talk to Reception.
This way you can help us to direct you to the right person and get medical attention when you need it. Thank you for your understanding.

Electronic Prescription Service
Please be aware we use the Electronic Prescription Service to send prescriptions electronically to local pharmacies. To enable us to process all prescriptions this way, please:
•nominate a local pharmacy
•register for online services to order repeat prescriptions, or
•use the NHS App
If you order your prescriptions online, you no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from the surgery. Instead, if the repeat prescription is pre-authorised, you can go to the nominated pharmacy to pick up your medicines or medical appliances.
Introducing the NHS App
The NHS App is the first app from the NHS for people across England.
It can be used to book or cancel appointments, view your medical record, order repeat prescriptions, check your symptoms, register to be an organ donor or choose how the NHS uses your data.
You can find more information about the NHS App on the following links:
