Three steps:

1. Please phone the practice on 01373 301301 to speak to one of our Care Navigators who will ask you for a brief reason for your call.

2. They will then book you for a telephone consultation with one of our health professionals at an agreed time on the same day.

3. One of our health professionals will return your call. If you need a follow up face to face consultation this will usually be booked for you later that day.

You will always be seen if needed.

Our Care Navigators will ensure you are connected to the right care at the right time with the right health professional.
