Who should I see?

If you think you need to be seen by one of our GPs, the Practice Nurse, physiotherapist or other health professional at the surgery, please contact us using the askmyGP service. See our appointments page for more information on this service.

Before you contact us, please consider whether you can use any of the following alternative sources of support.

Self care

If you have a cough, cold, headache or other minor ailment try treating yourself at home first. Find out more about treatments for common minor ailments.

Please remember that self-care for common conditions can help free up our GPs’ time, making it easier to get an appointment when you have a more serious condition.

Your pharmacist can help too

Pharmacists are highly trained health professionals and can give you confidential health advice for a range of common illnesses and complaints.

Don’t wait for a GP appointment for coughs, colds, aches and pains. Just give your local pharmacy a call or drop in – there’s no need to make an appointment.

Your pharmacists can also help you decide if you need to see a doctor or nurse.
