Although we are not a Walk-in Centre, if you have a minor injury while away from home we may be able to help you so please contact us for advice before coming to the surgery as we dont always have a GP or a nurse on the premises. If you have a minor illness, the Pharmacy across the road may be able to help with advice and over the counter medications. Our nearest Walk in Centre is provided by Fellview Health Care at Cleator Moor and it is open from 8.00am to 8.00pm and on Sat mornings to treat Temporary Residents. They prefer you to call to arrange an appointment, contact details are:

If you are staying in our area longer, you can be registered with us as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on our practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to register as a permanent patient and Reception staff can help you with this. This will allow the Doctors to access your past medical history and medication to ensure that you are treated safely by our practice.
To register as a temporary patient please contact us or complete the registration form below. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
