As with all services, we have had to change the way we deliver your healthcare over the last few months. We have listened to patient feedback and now launch a new way for you to access your care.
If you are ringing to book an appointment or to speak to a clinician you may wish to try our new online consultation service; a quick, convenient and secure alternative to calling the practice.
This can be accessed now via our website at www.vinemedicalgroup.co.uk. Even if you have an urgent need, it is the fastest way to access care. You will be asked to fill in an online form and we will get back to you the same day with the next steps (during our normal working days).
Our team of 8-12 clinicians will be permanently prioritising your case submissions. You can contact us online whenever and wherever suits you. No need to wait on the phone. All you need is internet access using a smart phone, tablet, laptop or PC.
If you are unable to access our website, a relative or friend can help you, or our telephone receptionists will complete the exact same form with you via the telephone.
We apologise if during this transition phase our call wait is longer than usual, as our team take a full symptom history from all patients.

We would like to advise that sadly we have been made aware of a scam on Facebook where someone if purporting to be a Vine Medical Group GP.
The call is along the lines of:
"We are contacting patients over the age of 70 regarding personal alarm fobs."
The caller then tries to get the patient to change alarm fob supplier.
Obviously this is completely untrue and we can confirm there has been NO DATA BREACH from our records. The caller seems to only know the patient's name and address road name, both of which could have been obtained from the Electoral Roll.
If you have been contacted regarding this, we would advise you contact the police.
