Coronavirus Information

Attending The Surgery

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact your GP surgery will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-face contact where possible and help stop the spread of Coronavirus.

Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients, but you may be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone to assess what would be most appropriate for you. Call the surgery to discuss a face-to-face or virtual (telephone or video) appointment.  This can be a convenient and flexible way to receive healthcare.

Your GP practice is open and if you need to see your GP, please ring us on 01376 512827.  Our opening ours are Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.

Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.

You can also call NHS 111.  https://111.nhs.uk/

Medication Reviews

Due to Covid-19 we are unable to do your medication annual reviews at this time.  We will not be stopping your medications but you will need to request them monthly until things return to 'normal' and you can be seen here in the surgery.

School Exemption Letters

For patients requesting letters to exempt their children from attending school, we understand and sympathise with the concerns around children attending school at this time, especially if a household has extremely vulnerable members. 

As a practice we are very sorry, but decisions about children attending school are not ours to make.  It is not something that we can help with.  We would suggest a discussion between the people involved and the school to decide on the best way forward.
