Staff Shortage: eConsult will be turned off

Due to a temporary period of shortages of staff, including the medical, nursing, and administrative/reception team, we have made the decision to turn off eConsults from Friday 13th August at 4pm until Monday 6th September 8.30am.

Until Monday 6th September we need to concentrate on clinically urgent issues. We ask that patients please do not call the surgery unless it is essential you speak to someone on that day.

The administrative/reception team have been trained to assess each case and guide patients to the most appropriate service.

We urge patients to visit their local pharmacy or visit For minor injuries, such as bites and stings, minor eye or head injuries or sprains and strains, please visit the Urgent Care Centre at the New QE2

We ask that you please bear with us and try to be patient during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience.
