Self help and self referral

There are many conditions that can be managed without a doctor. On the NHS page, you can find a list of conditions and the best approach to dealing with them. 


Also, there are many other services to support you. Please visit our Self referral page to know more about them.



If you need an appointment, please telephone us or use the NHSApp. 

Please speak to our admin team if you do not yet have online access. 


Prescription requests do not require an appointment, but requests must be made online (via Patient Access or the NHS App) or through your pharmacy for clinical safety. If you are unable to use any of these methods, you may submit a written request.


BP checks - For routine hypertension reviews, please complete the template via an electronic consultation. You will need to submit a blood pressure reading using a home monitor or our surgery 'Pod' by reception. Our pharmacist will then contact you for review.


Ongoing problems should be dealt with by the same doctor whenever possible. You can request a specific doctor when using electronic consultation, but please keep in mind that it might not be possible at all times.


Home visits are provided for those who are housebound if the doctor thinks it is medically necessary - if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00. We do not provide home visits for ‘out of area’ registrations.


Community nurse/health visitor - You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.


Interpreter - If you require an interpreter for your appointment, please notify the receptionist.  We are able to access a language line service for this.


Care Navigator - You may be referred to a Care Navigator who will be able to assess your home circumstances and signpost you to any appropriate services.
