GP appointments

From 19 July 2021 onwards, our Covid-19 safety measures remain in place. We’ll still be limiting face-to-face contact wherever possible to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

All GP appointments will now be via telephone, with the potential of becoming a video call or face-to face-appointment, if appropriate.

Guidance and advice 

The elderly and chronically ill are particularly vulnerable to this virus, so we urge everyone to strictly adhere to the guidance on self-isolation to help protect everyone.

It’s important to think carefully about the NHS services you use, as the NHS is busier than usual due to the pandemic.
