During the pandemic the use of our online system Doctorlink increased. It is a great way to get clinical advice for your condition, however, it is worth remembering that each consultation takes a significant of time to review and there are lots of other ways to get advice. Also, you will not get an instant response to these so if it is urgent please call the practice or contact 111.
When the surgery is closed, if you have any healthcare need, please contact NHS 111 by either calling 111 or visiting the website www.111.nhs.uk . As always if you have any medical emergency then please call 999.
