Coronavirus Update

The current situation – DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY

In line with National (NHS England) guidance to reduce the spread of Corona virus, we will be instigating the following guidance from Monday 16th March. It has been recommended that practices suspend ALL routine appointments for the time being.

How will this effect you

From Monday 16th March we will only be offering urgent ‘on the day care’, with all patients being triaged over the telephone prior coming in to the surgery. Patients with existing appointments will be contacted by the surgery and offered a telephone or video consultation at the time of their booked appointment.

Why we are doing this

This is a precautionary measure to allow us to ask patients questions prior to visiting the surgery. This will help us to identify any possible cases of Coronavirus and help avoid further spread of the virus.

Our primary concern is to keep patients / staff safe and to ensure that the practice continues to be able to operate effectively.

If you have Corona Symptoms

Patients with a raised temperature above 37.8C or a new persistent cough regardless of travel should contact NHS111 via their website www.111.nhs.uk.

How to contact us

Please contact the surgery via our website, by our Get Help for Any Health Problem form or call 01242 226336 if you require urgent ‘on the day care’. We will then arrange a triage call for you from either a Doctor or a Nurse.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
