Visiting the Practice
Although widespread Coronavirus restrictions were lifted on 24 February, as a healthcare setting we still need to maintain strict rules to protect vulnerable patients and all our staff. If we have Clinicians and staff off work with Covid, we cannot provide an effective service to all our patients.
Our doors are open but you should only come in if you have a booked appointment. For all other matters, please telephone us instead on 01223 364116.
If you do have an appointment, please continue to wear a face covering and maintain safe social distancing when attending the surgery. On arrival please use the self check in machine and take a seat. Please do not attend your appointment if you are showing symptoms of coronavirus, have had a positive test or been advised to self isolate’.
We have a limited number of face to face appointments to book in advance. These are to be used by patients that need to be seen by the GP. We are still booking the majority of our GP consultations by phone and you will then be invited for a face to face appointment if needed.
Face to face nurse appointments can be booked a week in advance.
We are following the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings which will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.
Thank you for your continued support
We have now finished our Saturday clinics, but are still holding smaller clinics during the week. If you still wish to have this done please call the surgery on 01223 364116.
Due to a change in the requirements and the increased risk of liability for GPs, we are no longer able to accept requests for approval for shotgun certificates. For further information please click HERE
Did you know…?
We are participating in a new approach to improve access for patients to GP appointments. The aim is to direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional, which may be a GP or a pharmacist.
If your symptoms could be resolved by a booked consultation with the pharmacist instead of the GP, you will be given a same-day referral to a pharmacy of your choice. We think this is a good thing. Once you see how great your local pharmacist is – they are highly trained and skilled clinicians experienced in treating minor illnesses – we don’t think you’ll look back.
This will also help us to free up GP appointments for people with more complex health needs and ensure that everyone gets treated at the right time, by the right healthcare professional.
We are keen to hear what you think and will be listening to your comments and feedback about your experience of using this service.
Please note that we do not issue letters exempting patients from wearing face coverings in public. This is in line with the guidance that we have received from the local medical committee of the BMA. This guidance is HERE. If you feel you are exempt from wearing a face mask you can download a card HERE
GP appointments are only for illnesses and injuries that wont go away. For other problems you might need a different solution
Self-care – there are lots of things that you can do to take care of yourself
Pharmacy – your local pharmacist can provide a consultation area to speak privately so other people cant hear. They can tell you if you need to see your GP.
