Please be aware, from 1 September, 2021, patient data will be extracted from GP records to support health and care planning and research in England; this national initiative is known as General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR). The aim of this is to help find better treatments and improve patient outcomes for everyone. However, we recognise that you may wish to opt-out of having your information shared and additional information on how to do so is available here.
**Coronavirus update (COVID-19)**
If you have concerns that you may have been exposed to or become infected with COVID-19, please access NHS 111 online for guidance. DO NOT attend your GP practice or hospital emergency department.

If you require urgent but not life-threatening medical assistance that cannot wait until your GP practice re-opens, please call 111. Following a telephone assessment by NHS111 you will be provided with information about the appropriate service for your health problem. If you are unsure which health care service you need to visit, NHS 111 will signpost you to the most appropriate care for your condition - GP, local pharmacy, walk-in-centre, emergency department or an emergency ambulance response.
If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, please dial 999.
Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles (pay as you go phones need to have at least 1p of credit, although no charge is made).
You may be advised following a telephone assessment to attend one of our eight urgent care treatment centres, as listed below.
A leaflet to help you choose the right service for your health care needs is available here.
