Please see the 'Latest News' page for up to date information regarding Coronavirus.
If you develop a high temperature (above 37.8C) or a new persistent cough we advise you to stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days from the start of your symptoms. If you live with anyone else, THE REST OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD must stay at home and self isolate for 14 days from when the first person shows symptoms.
If your symptoms worsen or last longer than 7 days please contact 111 online service: https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.
If you do not have internet access please call 111.
Please DO NOT attend the surgery
The surgery will be closed on Monday 25th May due to bank holiday.
If you have a medical problem that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please telephone NHS 111 or for any medical emergencies please telephone 999.
Suspension of Online Appointment Booking Services
Due to government and NHS guidelines relating to Coronovirus we are temporarily suspending all online direct booking of appointments via SystmOne. This will enable us to screen all appointments before booking, helping to keep you and our practice staff safe.
You can still book an appointment or request medication through our ONLINE CONSULTATION PORTAL
If you already have an appointment with the surgery, this will now be done by telephone with a GP / PRACTICE NURSE RINGING YOU instead of you coming in to the surgery. Do NOT come into the surgery unless you have receive a call advising you to do so.
We appreciate that these changes maybe disappointing for patients, but as part of our contingency planning for Coronavirus we are trying to minimise the number of patients attending the practice as our priority is to keep patients and staff safe. We would like to thank you for your continued support and we appreciate your cooperation at this time
