Your GP practice

If you are not registered with a GP practice, we recommend you do so as soon as possible. Click here to find out how to do this.

If you are registerd, contact your GP surgery by phone or on-line using E-consult via the GP website if you have a condition that has:

  • not improved after caring for yourself or seeking help from a pharmacy
  • to report urgent conditions that are not life threatening
  • to report a deteriorating chronic condition

Practices generally operate between the hours of 8am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday. However, we advise you to check your practice website as times may vary.

Whilst lockdown restrictions are easing, and Covid-19 infection rates may have reduced, general practice still needs to maintain a covid-secure environment. Because of this, practices continue to assess patients remotely before offering face-to-face appointments. They are working hard to increase their face-to-face capacity in a covid-secure way, whilst retaining the flexibility of offering online and telephone access where these are preferred.

For minor aliments or illnesses, GPs may also book you an appointment with your local pharmacist.
