Despite lung cancer being the third most common cancer in England, suspected lung cancer referrals remain lower than normal.

  • If you’ve had a cough for three weeks or more, and it isn’t COVID-19, it could still be a warning sign, please contact your GP practice.
  • It’s probably nothing serious, but finding cancer early makes it more treatable.
  • Your NHS is here to see you, safely.

E-Consult and E-Consult Lite

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all GP surgeries have to now screen patients before they come into the practice.

We are now offering a new service called E-Consult Lite. This is where a receptionist will fill in a form for you over the phone if you cannot access E-Consult yourself or are unable to fill in the online form. This form will then be passed to a clinician who will contact you either by email, telephone or text.

If you are calling about a medical problem, you no longer need to request an appointment with the GP or Nurse, you can simply fill in our online E-Consult form which can be found on this website.

Test results, sick notes and prescriptions can also all be requested via E-Consult.

If you are calling about a life threatening emergency please call 999.
