Appointments - please see our coronavirus and latest news pages for current information
All consultations are by appointment only. You can express a preference for the doctor of your choice, and every effort will be made to accommodate that.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Our nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
We aim to promote self care wherever possible. It may be that visiting the pharmacy is your best option where over-the-counter treatment is available as well as practical advice.
If you are unable to keep an appointment for any reason, please telephone the practice to cancel as soon as possible so that the appointment slot can be offered to someone else.
If the clinician requires photographs from you, our patient adviser will provide you with the email address to send these to. Please note that this is a no reply service.
Do not send any photographs of intimate areas and only send photographs if asked to do so.
By sending your photographs to us you are giving consent for these to form part of your medical record.
Guidance on taking photographs:
Use a plain background
Include a tape measure or 10p coin to give an idea of scale.
Avoid using camera flash or zoom functions.
Provide a maximum of 4 photographs (minimum one distance shot and 2 close up)
Ensure photographs are in focus (not blurry).
Indicate in your accompanying message:
Patient date of birth
Location of area photographed
