Please refrain from requesting a home visit unless absolutely necessary. This is to reduce the impact on other patients.
Our GPs are allocated time slots throughout the week for telephone appointments. Please speak with reception if you require an appointment with a specific doctor.
Patients on long-term medication may obtain repeat prescriptions without seeing the doctor. These prescriptions are held on computer, which helps us supply the prescription rapidly and keep accurate records.

We are happy to post your prescription back to you if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope. Alternatively you can make your request online – Please see our ‘Online Services’ Section.
