We are now providing video consultations with the leading online GP provider, Push Doctor. This means there will be more availability for our patients to access NHS GPs via video appointment, with the option to receive prescriptions, sick notes and referrals from the comfort of your own home and at a time that suits you.
The practice remains open as normal for telephone and face-to-face consultations; video appointments are simply an additional, complimentary service for those who would prefer to be seen from home, and are usually available quicker than face-to-face appointments.

You will receive an SMS message to book a virtual consultation with a GP to the mobile number we have on your medical record. It will look similar to this.
Please note that this link will expire after 24 hours.
Once you have clicked the link, you will be directed to the Push Doctor website where you can create an account and enter the information required.
Book a consultation by following the online prompts and select the appointment most suited to you.
If you are using a mobile phone or tablet, you will need to download the app to your device and use this to consult with the GP at your chosen time. If you are using a laptop or computer, this can be done via the web page.
You can access the virtual waiting room up to 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.
IMPORTANT: You will need to provide a form of ID at the start of your consultation.
