The Lander Medical Practice is committed to keeping our surgery a safe place to protect sick and vulnerable patients & staff from the risk of COVID-19. We therefore ask that after 19 July patients continue to wear face masks and socially distance in our surgery, unless medically exempt.  Thank you.


All our health services are busy right now, especially our ambulance service and the emergency department team at Truro hospital.


Do you have symptoms that you are worried about? You can now use the NHS SYMPTOM CHECKER which can help signpost you to the most appropriate advice and support.



Did you know you know you can get help and advice by calling 111 or go online at

You may not need to go and wait in our busy emergency department and could be directed to a minor injury unit which will be quicker and closer to home. Only dial 999 for an ambulance in a genuine, life-threatening emergency, for example:


Chest pain / breathing difficulties / heart attack


Severe bleeding

Severe allergic reactions

Severe burns or scalds

Serious head injuries

Major trauma such as a road traffic accident or a fall from height


If you have called for an ambulance, please do not ring again asking for a time of arrival. Only call again if:


The patient’s condition worsens or you no longer need our help.


The call handlers must prioritise speaking to the most seriously injured and unwell patients.


If you don’t think it’s a serious or life-threatening emergency:


Call your own GP. Even if you are in Cornwall on holiday, you could get a phone or video consultation with your doctor at home.

Go online at or call 111 to get expert advice and be signposted to where you can get the best and nearest care for your needs.

Ask a pharmacist for advice – they’re experts in treating minor health issues like colds, urinary infections, stomach upsets, aches and pains.

What is eConsult?

eConsult enables NHS based GP practices to offer online consultations to their patients. This allows patients to submit their symptoms or requests to their own GP electronically and offers around the clock NHS self-help information, signposting to services, and a symptom checker.

Please note: if your enquiry is of an urgent nature, DO NOT use the eConsult facility below.  Please contact the surgery direct on 01872 243 700.
