All urgent problems will be dealt with on the day. We might ask to postpone non-urgent items to the new year.
We do still want to talk to you if you are worried about symptoms that could suggest cancer or a heart problem.
All appointments are telephone calls initially. Our clinicians will invite you in to the surgery if necessary.
Do not come to the surgery if you or anyone you live with has symptoms of Covid. We will arrange a call or see you in a dedicated area in the surgery.
Booking an appointment with a nurse
We are offering appointments for urgent blood tests, ECGs, dressings and injections including vaccinations. This includes those where a doctor has asked you make an appointment. We are not offering routine blood tests at the moment.
If you are not sure if your problem is urgent do call the surgery and you can discuss this.
Our diabetes team are available for telephone advice and are still doing reviews over the phone
Attending an appointment at the surgery
Always wear a face mask over your mouth and nose - if you are exempt and able to wear a mask even for a very short time we would appreciate it
Try to attend your appointment alone. All school aged children will be asked if they can wear a mask when attending the surgery. We can give you one.
Please do a lateral flow test before attending the surgery
Tell us if you have any symptoms of covid. We will see you in a dedicated area of the surgery or rearrange if it is not urgent
In order to protect our patients and staff we still expect everyone to wear a mask unless you are exempt, in which case we ask you to remain outside until you are seen. Our waiting areas will be well ventilated and socially distanced.
