Current advice is where possible the practice should avoid face to face contact with patients. Consequently if appropriate you may be offered a telephone consultation. Patients where clinically appropriate will be able to see a GP.We ask patients to be understanding in the current unprecedented situation and consider whether their symptoms could be self manged, or advice taken from allied health professionals in the Minor Ailments pharmacy service. This allows GPs to prioritise their time on patients who are significantly more unwell or complex. Patients should not attend the Practice to make an appointment and should make contact by telephone only to avoid any potential spread of infection.
REPEAT PRESCRIPTION DURING CORONAVIRUS
For safety during the Coronavirus outbreak we are asking all patients to nominate a pharmacy for their prescription to go to directly.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY TO ORDER OR COLLECT REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS. If you already have prescriptions lying waiting to collect you will be asked to wait outside our doors. Please bear with our staff during this difficult time. We are all working additional hours to try and meet requests made, but cannot oblige requests for immediate prescriptions or additional supplies. We need to ensure there is enough medication for all patients.
With patient’s needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
