While we are all staying at home it can be difficult to know what to do if you need medical help or advice, your local NHS continues to be here for you
If you think you need to see a GP or nurse, please contact the practice using the eConsiult service below or by calling us. Please note our phone lines can get extremely busy .
Following an eConsult or telephone call a Clinician will contact you over the phone or by video consultation.
If the Clinician needs to see you face to face they will arrange this with you and advise you on the process of attending the practice.
Some appointments may be at other locations depending on the appointment.
If you have a high temperature, a continuous cough and think you may have coronavirus, please do not visit your GP practice, pharmacy or hospital. The most up to date advice on treating symptoms is available on the NHS website www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19. If you need further support, please visit the 111 online coronavirus service or call 111 if you can’t get help online.
If you need medical help or advice when the practice is closed, the NHS 111 service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can get in touch online at 111.nhs.uk or by phoning 111 and the team can find the right support for you, including mental health support, out of hours GP services and emergency dental support.
In a serious or life-threatening emergency, such as loss of consciousness, severe bleeding that can’t be stopped, signs of a stroke, chest pain or major trauma you should always call 999 or visit your nearest Emergency Department.
We know it can be difficult not seeing family and friends and the coronavirus outbreak is impacting us all differently, so it is really important we take care of our wellbeing.
