Seeing a GP is not always necessary. We are lucky to have a large, well-qualified team, including, Pharmacists, a Mental Health Nurse and an Urgent care team. We also have access to the local Pharm-refer service that enables us to organise a consultation with local Pharmacist for minor ailments.
When you telephone, our team will need to ask a series of questions in order to ensure you are seen by the most appropriate person to suit your needs.
