As you are aware the Government has advised against non-essential contact in an attempt to fight the coronavirus outbreak. We will be continuing to provide services as close to normal as possible.
Please DO NOT turn up at the surgery without telephoning first as you may be turned away. We will be carrying out most consultations over the phone or via video link for the time being, and if a GP needs to see a patient to examine them, please be assured that they will be given an appointment.
Anyone attending the surgery for a face-to-face appointment will be asked some routine questions and have their temperature taken prior to being allowed in the building.
All pre-booked routine nurse appointments will be contacted by telephone first, but routine annual reviews have been postponed for the next few weeks or they will be done over the phone. Our Nursing team will still be seeing some patients for routine baby immunisations, dressings and essential blood tests only.
If you require repeat medication, please order the normal amount via online ordering, email or eReception. We will not be issuing bulk medication as this will cause more strain on NHS supplies and is not necessary. If you require more information please contact 111.

Domestic Violence during the lockdown
The government acknowledges that recent measures announced to tackle coronavirus (COVID-19), such as the order to stay at home, can cause anxiety for those who are experiencing or feel at risk of domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse is unacceptable in any situation, no matter what stresses you are under.
If you are in immediate danger, call 999 and ask for the police - the police will continue to respond to emergency calls.
If you are in danger and unable to talk on the phone, call 999, and then press 55. This will transfer your call to the relevant police force who will assist you without you having to speak.
