Guidance on How to Deal with a Cough

Please see below a link to help deal with a cough. Also, some guidance from the Royal College of GP's. More details are also on our patient information page. Patients are being asked to adopt a new three-step 'mantra' to help relieve pressures on GP services this winter. The Royal College of GPs' '3 before GP' refers to three questions patients should ask themselves before booking an appointment with their GP: Can I? 1. self-care 2. use NHS Choices or similar reputable websites/resources 3. seek advice/treatment via a pharmacist https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/cough/

Our best month ever with 91% of patients happy to recommend us. We had 33 responses this month, with some positive comments for the GP's and reception team, but some concerns regarding appointments running late. We are continuing to work on how best to run the appointments and would hope to see less of a wait as we move forward. Thank you for the feedback.

Monday: 8.40am – 12.00pm and 4.00pm – 7.30pm

Tuesday to Thursday: 8.40am – 12.00pm and 4.00pm – 6.00pm

Friday: 7.15am - 12 pm and 4 pm-6pm

We often offer appointments outside of these times, in particular for our phlebotomist and nurses, for blood tests and other treatment. Please ask for details
