Covid-19 - UPDATED 19th July 2021

In line with Government Guidelines the surgery is open and we are continuing to offer Doctor telephone and video consultations in the first instance.  If, after your telephone consultation, the Doctor feels that you need to be seen face-to-face you will be offered a face to face appointment either later in the day or the following day.  More face to face appointments are now available, but these are controlled by the Doctor so that we can review how many patients are in the surgery building at any one time and adhere to the social distancing guidelines.

Telephone Did Not Answer Policy

We are still controlling the number of patients in the surgery at any one time therefore if you have a booked appointment please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your appointment time so that we can control the number of patients in the waiting areas.

As NHS settings are exempt from the new guidelines you will still be required to wear a face mask (unless medically exempt) and have to adhere to strict social distancing rules whilst inside the building to protect our staff and vulnerable patients.

For any patients who are concerned about Covid-19 the first thing you should do is visit the nhs.uk website which contains all the latest information, this is updated on a regular basis.  Click on the link below to take you directly to the website :-
