In line with national guidance, we are operating a reduced access policy to protect patients and staff from the potential transmission of coronavirus. We aim to deal with the majority of problems via the telephone, with only the most urgent consultations on a face-to-face basis.
If you have a routine appointment booked in the coming weeks you will be contacted by the surgery by telephone and you may be called back by an appropriate member of the clinical team.
Routine monitoring of chronic medical conditions such as Diabetes and Hypertension will be at a reduced level and non essential services such as medicals, medical reports & contraceptive services will be cancelled for the foreseeable future to allow our staff to focus on managing Covid 19.
All repeat prescriptions should be made via the prescription line/telephone. Please do not deliver slips through the letterbox or come in person. All prescriptions will be sent to the chemist, please do not come to pick them up at the surgery.
If you have minor symptoms i.e. cough or fever, then you do Not need to call the surgery – please self isolate for 7 days, and until >48 free of fever, before returning to normal activities. Please visit NHS inform for advice on symptoms. If you have worsening symptoms then please contact the practice or 111.
