Noticeboard

Are you in need of healthcare advice?

If you have toothache, sore or bleeding gums, troublesome wisdom tooth, tooth sensitivity or other types of facial pain your Primary Choice is a Dentist

If you have problems with your eye health like injuries, pain, swelling, visual loss or disturbance your Primary Choice is an Optometrist

If you have a minor illness like coughs, colds, diarrhoea or headaches or need advice on medications your Primary Choice is a Community Pharmacist

If you call your GP Practice you will speak to the GP Receptionist. They are trained to ask questions about your healthcare needs to help signpost you to the most appropriate person to provide advice or treatment

Your General Practice Nurse is your Primary Choice for wound and minor injury treatment, contraception advice and reviews, immunisations, blood monitoring and chronic illness reviews.

By making the right Primary Choice means your GP can spend time with the most vulnerable, complex and very ill patients.
