To help reduce the potential spread of infection, our surgery doors are now closed to the public. Our reception staff will still be here to assist with any queries you may have or if you feel you need to speak to a GP, a telephone consultation can be arranged.
When you ring us, our staff will ask you some questions to determine your condition. Some of the questions may include if you have a temperature or high cough. These questions will help us to determine the best course of action to take, but also helps us protect our staff and other vulnerable patients.
All prescriptions can be ordered in the normal way, please inform reception staff to which pharmacy you would like your prescription sent to, in order to limit the number of people coming to the health centre. Please allow 48 hours for repeat prescriptions to be processed as the pharmacies are extremely busy.
Our Treatment Room is operating a limited service. When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in the car park and ring us to let us know you are here. The nurse will phone your mobile when she is available to take you for your appointment. We ask that you wear a face mask / covering when inside the building.
We thank you for all your patience and cooperation during this challenging time. Please stay safe.
