Noticeboard

Changes to Access as a result of COVID-19.

This GP Practice is currently restricting access for the safety of all patients and staff.

We have at all times during the pandemic been available for our patients and have continued to offer medical care. We continue to offer telephone appointments as the initial contact, but will see you face to face when this is necessary. This helps us keep our practice as covid-secure as possible by limiting the number of people in the building, and helps us manage the current high level of demand for our services. We are sorry that this does not suit all our patients.

The doors remain closed so that we can avoid indoor mixing of patients who are unwell with those collecting prescriptions. Again we recognise that this is not ideal and are very grateful for the support we have had from all our patients since the start of the pandemic. 

PLEASE TRY TO PHONE OR USE THE ONLINE REPEAT PRESCRIPTION REQUEST SERVICE. WE WOULD APPRECIATE NO REPEAT SLIPS BEING HANDED TO THE SURGERY. WE WILL BE CONTINUING WITH OUR DISPENSING SERVICE AS USUAL.

Please allow 4 working days after requesting a prescription before coming to collect it.

SCREENING APPOINTMENTS
