Emergency Care 

Please phone the new NHS line - 111 for urgent medical help or advice but not a life threatening situation.

For life threatening situations please dial 999.

Home Visits
Telephone 335320 – The doctors do home visits when clinically necessary; it is helpful to request visits before 10.00am, then a Doctor will return your call.  This call from the Doctor is not available if your telephone does not accept calls from "number withheld" callers. 

Cancel your Appointment
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.

Telephone Call Back

Please telephone 01579 324242 to book a Telephone Call Back from Doctor.  All calls are now being recorded and monitored for patient care and training purposes.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
