Arranging an appointment -updated 15th March 2020

Due to the Coronavirus(Covid-19) we need to reduce the number of people coming into the surgery  so we can  protect our elderly and vulnerable patients and our staff.

From Monday 16th March 2020 and until further notice all appointment requests will be triaged by a GP or Nurse. The receptionist will take some details from you and a doctor/nurse  will telephone you to assess and arrange a same day appointment if appropriate.If they decide you need to be seen they will organise a face to face assessment.
We are in the process of contacting those patients with appointments that have already been booked offering either a telephone consultation or cancelling any non-urgent appointments, 

If you need to contact the surgery, please telephone from 8.00am (Monday - Friday). Please do not come into the surgery.

Stay at home for 7 days ,Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital,if you have either:

a high temperature –  temp >37.8c or, if you have no thermometer, you feel hot to touch on your chest or back

  • a NEW, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly

Please check our Novel Coronavirus page for further information on self isolating.
