Face Covering Update
You no longer need to wear a face covering when visiting our surgeries.
However, we do ask patients presenting with respiratory symptoms to continue to wear a face covering, if tolerated.
Patients can continue to wear a face covering if this is a personal preference.
Our practice offers an eConsultation service which currently operates Monday to Friday.
Please note it will NOT be in use on bank holidays.
The usual hours of eConsultation as of 31/10/2022 are 08:30am - 11:00am. However, due to the extremely high use of this service alongside staff holiday/sickness we may close this earlier each day.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BEFORE SUBMITTING AN ECONSULTATION
- If you are using the service to request a fit note, please ensure you select the 'I want administrative help' option and provide as much information as possible.
- eConsultation service should NOT be used for unwell children, as they are not responded to immediately. Please always contact the practice for an unwell child. We will always make allowances for same day emergency appointments for unwell children.
- This service is in high demand and cannot be used for routine appointment requests, changing appointments or cancelling appointments. We appreciate that phone lines are busy but this would be unfair to other service users.
- We cannot accept HRT or contraceptive pill requests via eConsult as these require a practice nurse appointment.
If you require a medication review please follow this link to complete: eConsult Medication Review
eConsultations are reviewed by our care navigators and allocated accordingly to the most appropriate clinician. An eConsultation does not mean a GP will telephone call you, often the clinicians provide responses and the practice will respond to you via your email or mobile number. If you are unwell, we would advise contacting the practice by telephone and not by submitting an eConsult. There is a direct link to online NHS self-help advice available, click 'GET STARTED' below to find out more. Thank you.

COVID/FLU Vaccination Clinics
We are currently operating as invite only clinics for our winter COVID vaccinations and flu vaccinations as we work through the eligible cohorts. Those eligible will be contacted either via text message or letter. The clinics are being held at Victoria Medical Practice
The NHS Healthier Together app has been designed to allow you to access care for your child much more easily. If your child is unwell and needs to be seen by a healthcare professional, instead of having to call your GP surgery, your surgery may offer you the option to use the app to directly inform them about your child’s symptoms. They will then contact you to decide what needs to be done. And if you are seeking help when your GP surgery is shut, it will direct you to NHS 111. Lots of other parents have already downloaded it and have found it extremely useful.
