Welcome to St James Surgery Website
We aim to help you find all the information you need. Please take your time to browse through our website and you will find lots of useful information about the surgery and the services we can offer you.
Please Note: We no longer have a Fax Machine. Please phone the surgery or contact us via email.
Since the start of the Covid Pandemic our Clinicians have seen, and will continue to see, their patients in Face-to-Face consultations. Consultations with a GP are initially conducted over the phone after which a Face-to-Face consultation is arranged if needed.
But, with immediate effect, we are respectfully asking all patients attending St James Surgery to wear a face covering. Government advice for the general public is to wear a face covering where social distancing is not possible (this does not apply to children under 2, people with disabilities or those with breathing difficulties). Evidence suggests that wearing a face covering may provide some protection for others you come into contact with. Also, if you have a face-to-face appointment, please come alone where possible. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
