Dispensary Changes - Please note
Our Dispensary is very busy at present and will be closed between 1 & 2pm to allow our staff to have a lunch break and catch up, we will be closing at 6pm rather than 6.30pm from Tuesday 23 March 2020.
Medication can be collected from the main reception desk and please post any repeat prescription requests at the post box at the front door. Please allow 7 days to collect your medication following your request.
THE SURGERY IS OPEN!
The following changes to our appointments systems have been undertaken to protect our patients and staff, particularly those most vulnerable, on the guidance of Public Health England and NHS England. We continue to review the situation and will keep our patients updated.
GP appointments - you can book an appointment but will be advised that this may be a telephone consultation. The GP will decide if you need to be brought in to the Surgery to be seen face to face. We will contact you if there is any change in our procedures.
Nurse appointments - we are booking limited nurse appointments depending on urgency. These may be changed to telephone consultations.
Blood test appointments - we are currently booking appointments for blood tests. We will contact you if there is any change in our procedures.
If you wish to avoid the surgery, please cancel your appointment by contacting our reception by telephone.
Please DO NOT attend the surgery if you suspect that you may have Coronovirus (COVID-19). This is for the protection of our most vulnerable patients and our staff. We do not have any way of testing for the virus and it could lead to the entire surgery needing to close for full decontamination to be completed.
If you are concerned about Coronovirus, please see the NHS111 page: https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.
Please continue to cover your mouth when coughing and wash your hands regularly.
The situation is changing rapidly and we will update patients when more information is available. This post was correct as of 13th March 2020.
