Update on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Please don’t call or message the surgery regarding booster vaccines. We currently have the same information that you do and we cannot currently book you a vaccine appointment.
Please keep our phone lines clear for patients who need medical assistance.

What test do I need for COVID-19?
The rules about whether to arrange a lateral flow test or PCR are confusing.
The first question to ask is are you doing this as a routine test, or do you have symptoms?
The quick answer is:
- If you have symptoms, you do need to arrange a PCR.
- If you do not have symptoms, do a lateral flow test

Helpful Online Tools
Want advice from your doctor, self help information or have an administrative request (such as a sick note or test results)
eConsult and get a response before the end of the next working day or sooner for a clinical online consultation and within 3 working days for an administrative request.
Can we please remind patients that you must NOT attend the surgery unless the GP or Nurse has asked you to do so.
We are here for pre-bookable and medically required same day telephone appointments and should the GP feel they need to see you in person you will be given a time to attend. Patients can also book in with the Nurse for procedures such as smears, annual reviews, NHS health checks and much more, if unsure please contact reception.
Can we also ask that a face covering is worn at all times when on the surgery premises and that you sanitise when entering and leaving the building.
