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.

We have now opened our door to patients but ask that all patients read the information on the door before entering the surgery.  There are restrictions in place to continue to keep our patients safe and we ask that you wear a mask on entering the waiting room and request that no more than 3 patients are in the waiting room at a time, this includes patients collecting prescriptions.

Thank you.

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

Cervical screening, breast screening, diabetic retinopathy and bowel screening appointments are now being sent out.  If you have any queries with regard to these screening programmes please contact  NHS inform on 0800 22 44 88 or contact a Screening Centre.

Home Visits

Doctor's bagWhilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling
01463 811200 before 10:30.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
