Our Nurse Practitioners consult daily and can both diagnose and prescribe. They confer with the duty doctor if they feel it is appropriate.
Due to changes in the NHS Guidelines and the recent introduction off GDPR, patients will no longer be able to translate for other family members at a consultation unless in emergency circumstances. If you need translation for your appointment please advise reception who will organise a translator for you and arrange a 20 minute appointment with your clinician. Patients who do-not have a translator may be asked to rearrange their appointment.
We operate a pre-bookable appointment system for up to 4 weeks in advance.
Urgent appointments are available the same morning with one of our Nurse Practitioners.
Doctors are available for telephone advice. If the doctor is busy the receptionist will take your details and ask the doctor to return your call.

Giving Consent for Treatment
You have the right to accept or refuse treatment that is offered to you, and not to be given any physical examination or treatment unless you have given valid consent. If you do not have the capacity to do so, consent must be obtained from a person legally able to act on your behalf, or the treatment must be in your best interests.
Your valid consent (agreement to the course of action) is needed for the treatment that’s offered to you before any physical examinations or treatment can be given. If you haven’t given your consent, you can accept or refuse treatment that’s offered to you.
It’s important to be involved in decisions about your treatment and to be given information to help you choose the right treatment. When making treatment choices, you’ll often discuss the options with your doctor or another healthcare professional.
