Please note that during this time we are only seeing patients by request of a GP or Nurse. All routine appointments where applicable are being done via PATCHS, or telephone triage.
If you arrive at the surgery, you will be asked to speak to staff via an intercom system at the door where they will ask the nature of your visit. Please arrive no more the 5 minutes prior to you appointment time, and where possible attend alone.
PATCHS is a great way to speak to a member of staff quickly. There is no waiting on the phone and this can be done from home. We do advise that requests put in late in the afternoon are likely to be picked up by a GP the next day, but please be assured that it has been seen and triaged first.
For medical emergency you can still call the surgery if you feel it can not wait. Our staff will then provide you with the most appropriate information they can.
This year, the way we run our Flu campaign will be very different to previous years due to Covid-19 and social distancing rules.
