Covid-19 announcement

We will be continuing with our telephone triage appointment system for those patients who require an appointment with the G.P until further notice. You will need to make yourself available to take that call throughout the morning or afternoon (whichever you have been allocated) as due to the high number of calls we are receiving, the G.P does not have the availability to attempt to call patients on multiple occasions. We appreciate this is very different than how we usually operate our appointment system, however we are in unusual circumstances so have needed to adapt our system to permit us to continue to have maximum appointments numbers available. We are now moving to only booking appointments with our nurses that are essential. If you require an appointment with our nursing team please contact the nurse reception to enquire what services we are still offering during this time. We are currently still offering blood tests to prevent our patients needing to attend TLC on a Wednesday weekly. These appointments will only be booked on the day you wish to attend and not in advance If you have any concerns over something you feel you need to discuss with the nursing team we will try and accommodate a telephone consultation with them. Those patients on Chronic disease registers who are due their annual review, we are looking to conduct interim telephone calls for this. Please DO NOT attend the surgery to book any appointments please call the surgery to do this. All the administration and clinical team at the surgery thank you for your support and understanding during this time. We are making decisions based on the guidance we are receiving from Public Health England and minimising the risk to our patients. #helpustohelpyou
