Problem with our Telephone Lines
We are currently experiencing issues with our Telephone Lines. This is an ongoing problem, which we are trying to solve.
We apologise for any problems that you may have when attempting to contact the Medical Unit, we hope to resolve this issue as soon as possible.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Before Booking a GP Appointment
Before booking an appointment with a GP, ask yourself these three questions:
- Use NHS Choices or similar reputable websites/resources
- Seek advice/treatment via a pharmacist
When attempting to book an appointment to see a GP/Nurse Practitioner, you may have our receptionists ask you questions in an attempt to signpost you in the right direction to avoid any unnecessary appointment bookings.
Often patients ask for an appointment with the GP/Nurse Practitioner when sometimes another Health Care Professional or source could deal with the problem more appropriately.

Depending on the reason for your appointment, and if you are in agreement, it may be suitable for you to see an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, instead of a GP.
