Appointments & Home Visits

We ask that patients use the eConsult programme for non urgent contacts. This is available via this webpage.Please complete a clinical eConsult and a Clinician will respond by the end of the next working day. We do not offer Face to Face appointments unless a clinician has asked a patient to attend. Parents can complete on behalf of their child. The eConsult system will be available Monday – Friday 8am-7pm but not during Public Holidays.
A number of routine telephone appointments are available to book in advance with GPs and ANPs. We also have some extended access, bookable in advance routine telephone appointments with our ANP’s. These are available at 8am for those people who are working.
Please use an admininstration eConsult for test results, fit notes, admin requests and messages for Clinicians. We are unable to take telephone requests for these items before 11am each day due to the telephone demand for triage.
New, urgent on the day issues can be taken over the telephone between 8.30am and 10:30am only and they will be triaged by a Clinician. Be prepared to give brief details and a contact number.

Repeat Prescriptions

Telephone requests for repeat prescriptions can be taken after 11am.
As part of our website, we also provide an online facility for ordering your repeat prescription. This is available 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. If you order at a weekend we will not receive your request until the next working day so it will be a further 7 days for collection at the pharmacist.
Prescriptions will be sent directly to the chemist of your choice. Please allow 7 days for collection at the pharmacy (excluding weekends and public holidays). If you are on regular medication for a long term condition, contact reception and ask about a SERIAL PRESCRIPTION. If you are suitable for this service, it would mean you no longer have to order your prescriptions and you just collect from the pharmacy every 2 months, but the practice pharmacist has to set it up for you.
