 Please check our NEWS page for additional up to date advice.

The surgery is open. We have put precautions in place to keep both patients and staff safe: we will limit the number of people in the waiting room at any one time, we intend to keep to the 2m distance rule and seats have been marked to alert visitors where they can sit. We will screen people at the door to check that they are not symptomatic before entry. All doctors and nurses will be wearing PPE when they see anyone. There will be an additional protection screen in reception. 

Please contact us if you need to see a doctor, call the surgery and you will be called back by a GP who will assess you over the telephone. If you need to be seen, you will be given an appointment. Please make sure we have your up to date telephone number. In line with NHS England guidance, anyone attending surgery will now need to wear a mask. If this is difficult for you, please inform a staff member when your appointment is booked. For your convenience, there are exemption cards for you to download and print or screenshot on your phone on the news page of this website.

We are not holding morning drop in clinics at present.

Alternatively, click on the online services tab above and register for doctorlink - this is our online triage service. You will be asked to complete a symptom checker and then be given appropriate advice. If the advice is that you should see a doctor, you will be contacted to book an appointment.

If you have access to online services, you can also book a telephone appointment with the Doctor. Please call our reception team if you do not have access to online services.

You can also use the NHS 111 service to check your symptoms and seek advice. Please follow the link. https://111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19/

CHRONIC DISEASE REVIEWS

Chronic disease reviews like asthma or diabetes will be carried out over the phone. If you already have a review booked, please do not come to surgery, the nurse will call you around your appointment time. Please make sure we have your up to date telephone number.

We will still be performing smears, baby and child vaccinations, wound dressings, urgent blood tests, important health injections, but we ask that if you start to show signs of a new persistent cough, a fever of 37.8 or more or a loss of smell or taste, that you cancel your appointment and follow public health advice to self isolate for 7 days.

Booked appointments with other healthcare professionals, like counsellors or midwives may be subject to similar changes. They will contact you directly if you are going to be affected. We ask that you are responsible and cancel any appointments if you begin to have any of the symptoms mentioned above.

When you order your medications, we request that you allow us to send your repeat prescription directly to a pharmacy of your choice.

We thank you for your patience and understanding with this matter. This new system will allow us to protect both patients and staff whilst still continuing to provide healthcare to our community. 

Thank you for you cooperation.
