Direct access NHS and Care Services


Did you know, there are a range of services and trained health professionals working closely with your GP that might be better suited to help you?

Visit to view a list of services available to you and find out how to access them.

The next time you make an appointment at the practice, you may be asked some questions about the reason for your appointment. Please don’t be offended – this is simply so that we can make sure you see the person who is most suitable to help you.

Of course, you don’t have to do this, but it would help us to help you and ensure you see the right person, first.

Did you know you can access a range of NHS and Social Care services without needing to see your GP? You can even self-refer to some specialist services without a GP referral.
