COVID-19 Practice Changes

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 emergency and concerns about the spreading of Coronavirus, we are currently not booking any GP appointments and have moved to a total triage system. Our telephone lines are currently fully managed by our GPs who will answer each call and endeavour to respond to your needs via an immediate telephone consultation or, if more appropriate, video consultation. Due to this, you may occasionally expect a longer wait on the phone, as these calls take a little longer to complete; please be patient, one of the doctors will answer your call as soon as they can.

In rare cases, when clinically indicated, patients may be asked to attend the surgery; please do not come in unless you have been asked to do so.

Please note that all non-essential work is currently suspended also for our nursing team and only clinicians are able to book any appointments when deemed clinically necessary at the time.

Children immunisations are considered essential work and will continue as usual.

Other procedures considered necessary will also continue, including high risk drug monitoring, complex dressings etc. If you have less complex dressings regularly done at the surgery, you may be shown by your nurse how to do it at home if possible.

Please note, you can continue to use the DoctorLink symptoms checker which has been updated in consideration of current NHS guidance.
