Please note that booking an appointment with a doctor may not be the most appropriate way to deal with your problem. We encourage our patients to take responsible action to care for themselves, where appropriate. You can find information about common conditions that normally resolve without the need to see or speak to a doctor or nurse on the self-care page of our website.
We now offer the opportunity for our patients to self-refer to some services without the need to see a doctor first. You can now access care directly for physiotherapy, foot care, counselling & talking therapies, audiology, citizens' advice, weight management, stop smoking, family planning and drug & alcohol services. Please see our self-referral page for full details.
