As an interim measure and in order to assess patients accurately we are stopping on-line appointment booking access. Therefore please be patient when phone the surgery to book appointments. Please also note that whilst this pandemic continues patients will be telephoned by a clinician to discuss their symptoms before being given an appointment
If you have any reason to suspect that you may be suffering from Coronavirus (COVID-19) , DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY. Stay at home and read 111online 111 Online

Important changes to the surgery during pandemic
Please note we are asking for patients who attend the surgery to wear a face covering - this will help protect both patients and staff
As from 24.3.2020 we have reluctantly taken the decision to change how people can access the surgery during the pandemic
For script collection - please go to the side of the surgery where you will find signs to our reception window, which is fitted with a doorbell to attract attention. We are asking that you attend to collect your medication between 9-1 and 2-5 wherever possible as we have some staff shortages and this would help us.
Our script request postbox is also available through the window.
For people attending to see the nurse and HCA with pre-booked appointments, we ask that you go to the back door and knock to attract attention. We have placed some benches outside but will try not to leave you waiting. Please don’t attend your appointment too early as we cannot let you in until the previous patient has left. Once we know you are here you can wait in your car.
We are taking this action to protect our patients and our staff and ask for your forbearance whilst these changes are introduced and the problems ironed out.
GP appointments remain on a telephone triage first basis
If you get a text reminder for a pre-booked appointment then please attend as usual
