Noticeboard

Flu vaccines 2020: We are now taking bookings for flu injections. If you are eligible please telephone the surgery to book into one of our flu clinics. If you do not wish to have the vaccine please could you still contact to let us know so we can take you off our list.

Please be aware that our flu clinics will run slightly differently this year to ensure social distancing is maintained. You may be asked to wait outside or in your car. You will be required to wear a mask unless you are exempt. Please ensure you wear appropriate clothing to ensure the vaccine can be given to you ask quick as possible. A one way system will be in operation at the practice. You will be asked to stand to have the vaccine unless you are unable.

Thank you all for your continued cooperation.

 

We are unable to produce any letters for patients regarding exemptions to wearing a face covering. Please follow the clearly defined government guidelines. Face coverings on Public Transport, Shops and Supermarkets

From 17th July due to an increase in demand if you need to speak to a doctor please call before 11.00am. After this time we will only be able to deal with calls of an urgent clinical need. We are still operating a telephone triage service so please only attend the practice if you have an agreed booked appointment.

From Monday 15th of June in line with recent government guidelines all patients attending the practice will be required to wear a face mask or face covering. Thank you for your continued support.

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. Depending on the amount of patients waiting you may be asked to wait outside or in your car if appropriate. Please come by yourself to your appointment unless you need a carer or are unable to source child care.

This page will be regularly updated with current information about the change in services offered at the surgery with regards to the coronavirus pandemic.

Coronavirus Update 20th April: Practice staffing has been affected by the impact of COVID-19; both self-isolation and the need to protect high risk members of staff. We will therefore only focus on urgent patient need.

 

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.
