During the coronavirus outbreak the surgery remains open but will be operating differently.  We are suspending booking all face to face appointments with effect from 16 March 2020 until further notice.  Please do not attend the surgery.  If you believe that you need to be seen, please request a telephone appointment.  If you already have an appointment booked do not attend the surgery. If it is clinically appropriate the clinician will arrange for you to be seen. Essential nursing appointments will continue as usual for now. This action is essential to maintain your health and the health of your community as advised by the Department of Health.


If your query is about Coronavirus go to 111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or call 111


Anyone with a new persistant cough and/or fever should self-isolate for 7 days; do not call 111 or contact other healthcare providers.  If symptoms deteriorate and you feel you need medical care, contact NHS 111.  Testing will only be done for those in hospital with symptoms



 


 


 

Home Visits

doctors_bag6We do prefer it if you are able to come to surgery as we can examine you more easily, however, if you are too unwell to come to surgery and need a home visit please telephone us as soon as possible after 08:30 on 01235 522379.

Telephone Advice - GP or Nurse

If you wish to book a telephone call with your GP or nurse please phone reception and request a telephone consultation with them. 

Unfortunately it is not possible to guarantee a time that the doctor / nurse will phone you, it is therefore important you provide us with a telephone number that you can be contacted on between 08:40 and 18:30 hrs.  The doctors prefer to have some information before they phone you and so please be advised the receptionists will ask you for details to pass on to the doctor / nurse.

 

We are able to book telephone calls with our nurses throughout their normal working day when their capacity allows, but normally the nurses also return calls at the end of their morning surgery.  Telephone calls with the nurses can also be booked in advance.
