Who should I see?

We try to keep our GP appointments for patients with more serious health problems.

Before you book an appointment to see a doctor please consider whether an appointment with a practice nurse might be appropriate. They can help you with a wide range of medical problems.

Our receptionists can help you decide which is the right person for you to see.

Children’s Symptom Checker

Please use this link to check a child’s symptoms on the trust website. It will guide you on the best course of action for your child’s condition.

Self care

If you have a cough, cold, headache or other minor ailment try treating yourself at home first. Find out more about treatments for common minor ailments.

Please remember that self-care for common conditions can help free up our GPs’ time, making it easier to get an appointment when you have a more serious condition.

Your pharmacist can help too – Pharmacy First

Pharmacists are highly trained health professionals and can give you confidential health advice for a range of common illnesses and complaints.
