Corona Virus

Staying safe when you need medical care from GP practice
 
  • Do not come in to the surgery for routine care if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 (Cough, high temperature, loss of smell or taste)
  • If you need any medical help or advice contact us by phone and a GP will triage your request. 
If your GP decides that a face to face assessment is necessary, they will book an appointment for you to be seen by the duty doctor in the afternoon. Here is some important information about your visit to help keep you and our staff safe.
  • Come in at your appointment time, not before. This is to minimise the amount of time spent in the surgery and avoid having more than 1 person in the waiting room at a time.
  • Please come to your appointment alone unless you are accompanying a child or vulnerable adult.
  • Stand in the area marked out in the waiting area and let the receptionist know you have an appointment.
  • Please wear a face covering or mask to your appointment. This needs to be well fitted and covering both your mouth and nose. 
  • We have a hand sanitiser in the waiting room, please use this before going through to the consulting room.
  • The GP or Nurse you see will be wearing full PPE this means a mask, apron, gloves and visor

New Opening Hours

Opening Hours

PPG Meeting

We have held our first PPG after relaunching the group this summer. Thanks to those PPG members who attended. We had some really good ideas to improve communication and recruit more PPG members to ensure that we have a diverse group that represents the practice population.  To see the minutes from the meeting click here.

Online Consultations Update 

We have done our first week of online GP consultations and had some brilliant feedback from patients about the service.

Our average response time for queries before 12pm has been 30 minutes

Patients have been able to obtain treatment and advice without coming to the surgery

We have found that patients who consult online but still need to be seen in person by a GP take less time to be seen due the detailed information given online

Keeping in touch.......

Our Summer News letter is available here, in the Surgery or on our

Clinical pharmacist

We now have a clinical pharmacist working at the practice.  As a specialist in medicine, you can see her if you have medication related problems to discuss rather than seeing a GP.  As at reception.  

 

Registration with the practice

PreRegistrationIf you wish to register with the practice this can be done in person at reception. If desired you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.

pdfRegistration Form

When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire for each individual being registered. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. Please bring a copy of your repeat prescriptions if you have these, from your previous GP so we can ensure continuity of your drug treatment.

 

We require proof of address (eg utility bill, bank statement) and photographic identity (eg passport, driving licence) when you register. This is to ensure you are eligible for NHS treatment and to help us combat fraud in the NHS. We will not keep copies of the identification you show us.
