CORONAVIRUS

We are mainly operating telephone consultations during the COVID19 crisis

 

Do not book a GP appointment or attend the surgery if you have a new continuous cough or high fever.

  • If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and have a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days. If you live with other people, they should also stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home.

  • If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do

Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the  online service or can not go online

NAMED GP FOR ALL PATIENTS

NHS England require all practices to allocate a named GP to all patients. For administration purposes you will have been allocated a named GP, however you can still see any of the GP's at this practice regardless of whether they are your named GP or not. If you would like to know who your named GP is, please ask any member of the practice team.

Due to adverse weather conditions it may be necessary to close the practice early as we do have to consider the safety of our Doctor's and Staff. If this happens and you require medical help please telephone 01303 863160 and follow the instructions. Thank you
