CORONA VIRUS- COVID-19

How this is affecting our Practice

Reviewed 9.4.20 -9.30am

STAY HOME      PROTECT THE NHS        SAVE LIVES

In light of the current pandemic issue of Corona Virus, we have changed the way we do things at the practice. This will change over the comings days and weeks and possibly months.  We would ask you to bear with us and be assured we are working hard to do our very best by you all.

  • If you have any NEW cough or high temperature PLEASE DIAL 111.  They will consult with you and let you know if you need to be seen.

  • If you are referred back to the Practice, and we then contact you with a time, you will be required to wait - in your car - in the car park.  Please phone us when you arrive and we will call you back when we are ready to see you. Please follow our instructions, to maintain your safety and those around you.  

  • If, after speaking to 111 you are requested to attend the Community Assessment Centre (located here at the Health Centre) PLEASE FOLLOW THEIR INSTRUCTIONS

  • If you need to BOOK A ROUTINE APPOINTMENT to see a GP, our staff will book a telephone appointment in the first instance.  If the GP then decides that you need to be seen, an appointment will be allocated to you.  When you arrive at the surgery, please take one of the marked seats and your GP/Nurse will come for you.   There is no requirement to use the Self-Check-in screen or ring the reception bell.  Please also ensure that you arrive in time for your appointment.  We don't wish other patients to wait unnecessarily.

  • You must ensure that anyone accompanying you to your appointment,

    does NOT have a new cough and/or a high temperature. 


  • If you need to book an EMERGENCY/SAME DAY APPOINTMENT that is NOT A RESPIRATORY PROBLEM (as outlined above) our staff will book this for you.
