However, BEFORE you click the link to access AskmyGP we would be very grateful if you would consider the following.  General Practice alongside the NHS as a whole is under significant strain at present.  Every single request which is made on askmygp is dealt with by your Practice Team.   Hence, please spend a moment considering the choices of other services which might well be equally or better able to assist with your current issue.  For example:

Your local pharmacist can advise on many minor ailments and medication queries

The NHS website has excellent information and guidance. Go to NHS.UK

If you still think that we are best placed to help you will be delighted to do so

Our staff may also continue to wear face coverings in clinical settings or based on personal preference.

At this time please do not go to the surgery, unless you are advised to do so by a member of the Practice team. Please wear a face covering and observe social distancing when attending the surgery.
