Anyone staying in our catchment area that needs to speak with a GP regarding medication or a chronic disease must telephone their registered GP.  This will aid the management of your care as your GP will have a full record of your medical history and can also undertake a video or telephone consultation if required.

If you have run out of/lost your medications, your registered GP can send your prescription electronically to a local pharmacy in Mullion or Helston for you to collect.

If you require urgent care then please call 111.

If you suffer from a minor injury, there are two minor injury units locally :

Camborne and Redruth Community Hospital - includes a Primary Care Centre

Falmouth Community Hospital

We appreciate that we are all trying to navigate through these unprecedented times and hope that this will aid better patient care.

FACE MASKS to be worn at all times when attending the Surgery

If you have an appointment to be seen at the Surgery/collecting medications, please wear face covering. This helps to protect you and our Practice Team.  If you do not have a face mask the Surgery do have a supply and will provide you with one on entering the building.

Supplying face mask exemption letters to patients

We are very sorry but - the Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption.  It should be sufficient for you to declare that you are eligible for an exemption direct with the person questioning you.  So we are unable to provide any letters of support at this time.
