We are currently very short staffed so there may be a delay in answering the telephone and we will only be booking urgent GP appointments. If you need a routine GP appointment please use the eConsult service or consult your local pharmacist. Please ensure you only discuss one issue per eConsult and provide as much detailed information and descriptions about the problem as you can (including how long it has been affecting you) If you have received a text asking you to book an appointment with the nurse, please book as usual.
