Casualty Attendance

Most Emergency problems can be very adequately managed by our practice and there should seldom be a need to go to A&E.  As you will see we have increased the number of hours that we are open and we offer two late night surgeries to help improve access.  You will also see that we have now developed a website that is packed full of useful health information that you may find useful when you are suffering from an illness. 

We always have appointments on the day available and we also discuss problems on the telephone if that is your preferred choice of consultation.

Out of Hours

If you are unwell in the evening, overnight, on a bank holiday or at the weekend and you are unable to wait to see your GP, please call the NHS Care Service on 111. Calls to 111 are free from landlines and mobiles.
