Alert

Coronavirus Update

You should only come in to the surgery if you have first spoken to a receptionist, nursing staff or a doctor.

*COVID-19 VACCINE*

You will be contacted when it is your time to have the vaccine. Please do not contact the NHS or the GP surgery to seek a vaccine. It will take the NHS time to get the vaccine to everyone and those most at risk will be offered the vaccine first.

In the meantime, please follow national guidance to help control the virus and protect the NHS.

WEEKEND MEDICAL ADVICE

Due to pressures on the 111 service, during the hours of 8 am till 7:30pm on weekends only we have opened a direct patient line 01895 379302 which is able to help you with virtual consultations for urgent medical problems. If you have COVID symptoms please call 111 or visit www.111.nhs.uk for advice. For non COVID problems you can use this line and speak to a local GP for some advice.

Outside these hours please call 111, or visit the 111 website.

If you have run out of regular medication please remember that the pharmacists are able to issue you with an emergency supply until the practice is open and therefore please contact your pharmacist first.

 

Visit NHS.uk for the latest guidance on coronavirus COVID-19, including symptom checker, self-care and social distancing.

Refer to NHS 111 Online to check if you have coronavirus symptoms. If you have severe COVID-19 symptoms and need further advice call NHS 111 — not the surgery.

Isolation Notes are available online from NHS 111, if you are self-isolating and need a note for your employer.  Help, guidance available from our COVID-19 support page.
