Please do not let concerns over COVID19 stop you from contacting medical services.

COVID-19: The way that general practice is changing
Over the last couple of weeks, you are likely to have noticed a marked difference in the way things are being done in general practice as we manage Covid-19. Thank you for adapting so quickly to these new ways of working.
To limit the spread of Covid-19, we have worked to reduce footfall through practices by using online consultation systems like e-consult, telephone appointments and video consultations to ensure we continue providing you with the care you need.
Please note any digital image submitted as part of an online consultation, will be stored within your clinical notes.
Our top priority is to keep our patients and staff safe whilst ensuring patients get the care they need.
