Telephone Triage

We now offer telephone triage.  Triage just means deciding what, if any, treatment you need and which clinician you need to be seen by to get this treatment.  Offering telephone triage means that you will be able to speak to a clinician on the same day and either your problem dealt with over the phone, if appropriate, or an appointment offered if the clinician feels you need to be seen.  We hope this will work well and help improve access to appointments. 

You are only able to order your prescription over the phone between 2pm - 5pm.  You can however order online or by calling into the surgery at any time.  Please allow 2 working days before collection and make allowances for weekends and public holidays.


If you have returned from a country affected by Coronavirus within the last 2 weeks and are experiencing any of the symptoms or have been in contact with someone who have had a confirmed case of Coronavirus please stay at home and ring 111. DO NOT ATTEND YOUR SURGERY OR HOSPITAL.
