Social prescribing available

Did you know we have a social prescriber here at the surgery who you can speak to about your social, emotional and wellbeing needs?

They can help you to identify support you may need and link you in with support to help you manage your mental wellbeing, support to manage your finances, support to look for work or training, support for long term health conditions, support to find local groups and hobbies and much more.

Please speak to a member of reception or your GP who will arrange for a referral to be sent.

Please use eConsultation for NON URGENT problems

An online consultation or eConsultation is a form of digital triage. Patients go online an submit information about medical or administrative requests to their own doctors. This request is sent to the GP practice to decide on the right care.

eConsult is the most widely used online consultation platform used in the NHS. eConsult can be accessed from our website. eConsult collects the information about your request and sends it to us securely. Practice staff will then triage (sort) each patient so that everyone gets the right care as quickly and as safely as possible.
