Pharmacists

You can visit or contact your local pharmacy, where you can be given advice for common illnesses and the best medicine to treat them.

Please note all reports of contact with patients during out of hours services are faxed to the surgery the next day so that we can update patient’s records.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
