IMPORTANT INFORMATION - STATEMENT OF PRIORITISATION
Due to the increased pressures the NHS is experiencing as a result of the COVID pandemic, GP practices have been advised to prioritise clinically urgent (High Priority) matters and postpone non-urgent routine work.
- If you have a request which is of an urgent nature, please do not hesitate to contact us. The best way to do this, is via econsult. To access eConsult, please click here.
- Please continue to attend tests, vaccinations and screening when invited.
- We kindly ask you to take the above into consideration. You may be advised to re-sechdule your consultation or postpone your request if it isn't deemed to be clincally urgent.
Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine has been approved in the UK and is now available to priority groups.
Vaccinations are being delivered according to priority groups.
The Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) will be administering the vaccinations. The vaccinations may not take place at your GP practice, but rather a local vaccination service (led by GPs, practice nurses and community pharmacists) who are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in your community.
When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation to come forward. This may be via the phone, or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system.
We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we are asking people not to contact us to get an appointment as you will not be able to get one until you are contacted.
For further information regarding the COVID-19 Vaccination, please click here.
To access GP appointments you will need to complete an eConsult.
For GP advice regarding health, request for sick notes, administrative forms such as referrals and letters, you will need to use eConsult – You can do this by clicking the eConsult banner below.
Appointments for nursing and vaccinations are still bookable via telephone.
We aim to address eConsults submitted before 15:00 on the same day. eConsults submitted after 15:00 will be addressed before the end of the next working day.
Please remember - You do NOT need an account to submit an eConsult
