    Covid Restriction Update:  13/7/21
    Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.

    From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery - patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE.  We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.  

    In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, by e consult and by video), not counting vaccinating 90% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months.

    The local community has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for ALL patients as we can.

Christmas Opening 2021

 

Over Christmas the Practice is OPEN except for Bank holidays. We will continue to operate a telephone first system for your safety and ours.

 

Please do not attend the practice without an appointment and if you are asked to come in by one of the team, you must wear a face covering.

 

You can help us by considering using our econsult service for queries answered within 48 working hours, and by ordering your medication through the POD service.

 

If you have an urgent problem, please try to contact us early in the day so we have time to arrange a convenient appointment for you. For test results, please call AFTER 2.30 pm to keep the morning lines clear for patients who may need urgent appointments.

 

Consider using a pharmacy for self-care if you can and contact 111 for advice out of hours. 

 

This is one of our busiest times of year so please be patient with the staff team. Thank you for your continuing support.
