03rd June 2020: As a practice we are looking at how we continue our current social distancing measures whilst enabling us to see patients safely at the surgery. We only have a limited amount of space therefore we request patients do not come early for your appointment please arrive on time.

Please come by yourself to your appointment unless you need a carer or are unable to source child care.

Ramandan Information: Please see the attached information for any patient's during the COVID pandemic  Ramadan Guidance

It is important that patients work with us to protect the NHS, not just for unwell patients with COVID-19 but all other urgent conditions e.g. chronic heart conditions, cancer care.

  • DO think before ringing; We do not have the capacity to field minor queries for well patients.
  1. DO NOT use services unless absolutely necessary
  2. DO NOT request Med3s / reports / Holiday Cancellation Letters for COVID-19
  3. YOU MUST follow self-isolation/social distancing guidance
  4. DO use Electronic Prescribing Service to order NORMAL QUANTITIES of repeat medications
  5. DO be patient with all staff – everyone is doing their bit and working flat out

Your understanding at this difficult time for all of us is appreciated.
