Chronic Disease Recall Notice: We have introduced a new annual review recall system grouping chronic conditions together into one letter where possible and calling for patients alphabetically. For this year only you may receive your recall letter earlier than you would expect to attend, but we would still like you to make the required appointments. Through introducing this new system we aim to reduce the amount of letters/correspondence we send you, reduce multiple and unnecessary blood tests and save the amount of time patients take to attend the surgery for multiple reviews.

NHS 111

NHS 111 is much more than a helpline – if you're worried about an urgent medical concern, you can call 111 to speak to a fully trained adviser.

Depending on the situation, the NHS 111 team can connect you to a nurse, emergency dentist or even a GP, and can arrange face-to-face appointments if they think you need one.

NHS 111 advisers can also assess if you need an ambulance and send one immediately if necessary.

Ask NHS Phone App

A simple to use free mobile app that provides improved access to NHS 111 and your local NHSservices. 'Ask NHS' is provided in partnership with NHS.
