Coronavirus (COVID) Information
FACE MASKS ARE MANDATORY
To protect yourself, other patients and our staff, please wear a face mask to any attendance at the surgery. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, please press the buzzer and you will be asked to wait in your car/outside until it is safe to see you.
There are extremely high levels of COVID in the local area so we would encourage everyone to work together to stay safe.
We are sure you are all aware we have strived to keep the surgery as safe as possible throughout the pandemic for patients, staff and visitors. We have remained open throughout offering telephone, video and face to face consultations as appropriate and will continue to do so. All patients have been triaged before entering the practice to reduce the risk to you, vulnerable patients and staff members.
We need your help from July 19th 2021 to continue to keeping you, fellow patients and our staff safe and we will be maintaining our COVID secure measures:
PLEASE STILL ONLY COME TO THE PRACTICE IF YOU HAVE A BOOKED APPOINTMENT OR ARE COLLECTING OR DELIVERING SOMETHING.
We will still be wearing face masks and you must too when attending the practice (unless medically exempt) - this is to help protect you, other patients (including those that may be vulnerable from certain health conditions) and our staff. This is supported by national guidance:
Social distancing - we still require everyone to socially distance when in the building - follow signage for queuing and leaving chairs where they are placed a distance a part.
GP Appointment Telephone Triage - we are still running an appointment telephone triage service. PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE PRACTICE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT. If you need to make an appointment, please ring us and we will book you a telephone call back in the first instance. If on discussion with the clinician it is deemed you need a face to face appointment this will be arranged.
All other contact should be done via the telephone, online access or eConsult.
Please order repeat prescriptions online or through the NHS App. If you unable to access this, then please drop your repeat slip request through the letter box at the front door
Please keep up to date on all practice information via our website. The pandemic is not over and COVID 19 has not gone. Please help us to continue to keep you all safe.
