Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
We most certainly remain open and continuing to care for all of you, albeit in slightly different ways, in these testing times for everyone. All of us at the surgery are continuing to work as hard as we can to deliver the best, effective and safest personal care possible during the coronavirus COVID-19 crisis. This has inevitably meant fewer face to face contacts to minimize the risk of inadvertently passing on the condition in travelling to the surgery, being in contact with other members of the public and from health professionals to the public and vice versa. A huge thank you for adjusting your natural ways of accessing care and not coming to the surgery unless you have been asked to attend by a GP, nurse or member of the practice team.
Please continue to help us help you, by staying indoors and staying as safe as you are able, following the national and local guidance. If you need any medical advice phone us or complete an online consultation by clicking here
We are finding that the majority of issues can be dealt with by a phone or a video consultation but if you need to be seen in person our clinicians will arrange for a face to face appointment.
