Heatwave: How to Cope in Hot Weather
Latest advice on how to cope in the hot weather.
South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS)
South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) has declared a critical incident today (11 July) due to current pressures on their services.
We have made the very tough decision to cease Midwife appointments within the surgery. We have been very late to this point compared to other local surgeries, but the pressure on our consulting rooms is now so severe that we have no other choice.
The last day for appointments within the surgery is Friday 29th July and the Midwife will be contacting those patients who are booked in beyond this date.
Appointments will now be at the Horton Hospital and your Midwife will provide you with full information regarding this.
Please be aware that we have not made this decision lightly.
Covid/Dispensary Phone Line
Due to a Covid outbreak at the Surgery and subsequent staff shortages, the dispensary phone line will not be answered.
Please do not call to speak to them as they are unfortunately, unable to take your call. For anything URGENT, please contact reception.
Please continue to wear face masks when coming into the surgery. We would really appreciate it if you could bring your own as each week we are having to give out over 100 face masks to patients who have forgotton to bring one with them and as a surgery, we have to pay for these masks.
As always, thank you for helping us to stay open.
Covid-19 at Surgery
Covid is hitting our Nursing and Dispensary Team at the moment and therefore we wanted to make you aware that we will be understaffed in these areas.
This means that appointments may need to be rearranged and prescriptions will take longer to prescribe.
Please be patient with us as we cope with this latest challenge.
Can we please ask everyone who attends the surgery to still continue to wear a face mask to ensure our all our patients and staff stay safe.
We ask patients to wear masks to protect both themselves and our staff. We have had two outbreaks of Covid recently amongst the staff which then drastically reduces the amount of appointments we can offer.
We now require 3 working days notice between ordering and collecting medication (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays).
This allows us time to order medicines that we do not stock and prepare prescriptions for signing by the doctors before dispensing.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
In order for us to keep the surgery open and ensure that we are doing our utmost to keep you and ourselves safe, there will be times when appointments have to be re-arranged at short notice and you may not see the clinician you were originally booked in to see.
We appreciate your continued support and understanding during these difficult times.
In order to keep our patients (and staff) safe and to keep within national guidelines, we can no longer accept urine samples without an accompanying appointment. Therefore please don’t drop off a urine sample without having made an appointment to see one of our GPs or nurses first.
Urine samples also need to be in the correct container which reception will be happy to give you. This way we know the bottle is clinically clean and has a good screw top which won’t leak!

If you wish to send in a photograph to the surgery, please call the surgery first and we will arrange to send you a link to your mobile in order for you to send the photograph directly to your medical notes.
