To prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVD-19), we are moving all requests for appointments to a telephone triage system. Please ring us between 08:20 -10:00 am if you need medical advice for acute conditions. After the doctors call, patients who need to be seen in person will be given a face to face appointment at the surgery.
Alongside telephone, video, face to face appointment we now have online consultations.
This health advice can be accessed either via https://www.online-consult.co.uk/org/the-ridgeway-surgery
Or for patients who have an online access, can access it via the "health advice" tab.
If you would like to join the group or find out more about it please email
Next PPG meeting will be on 14th December 2021 via Zoom call
