Due to the ongoing pandemic, and to help keep you and our colleagues safe we’re following national guidance and minimising face to face contacts. We will continue to support you through video consultation, telephone consultations and virtual clinics and we’ll see you face to face where this is safe, and the most appropriate way to support you in line with the national guidance.

Accessing Health services

If you need an NHS service, try to do it online first. For example, instead of going to A&E, you could try NHS 111 online first. You should still go to hospital in a serious or life-threatening emergency, or if you feel very unwell.

The NHS website is here to help you take control of your health and wellbeing with advice and information on self-care, conditions, treatments and medicines.

You can contact your GP surgery by phone or online. You may be offered an appointment by phone or video call with a GP or practice nurse. You can order your repeat medication without needing to go to a GP surgery or pharmacy using the NHS App or GP online services. You can collect a prescription yourself, or ask a friend, relative or volunteer to collect it for you. You could also speak to your pharmacy about delivering your medicine to your home.
