Your GP practice is open and if you need to see your GP, please ring us on 01923 224 203 or visit our website – our opening ours are 8am till 6:30 Monday to Friday.
You can also call NHS 111. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.
Appointments are being delivered online and over the telephone/Video consultation. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
PLEASE READ OUR UPDATE ON THE CURRENT COVID-19 PHASE**
Due to the recent announcement that we have entered the ‘Delay’ Phase of the government plan we have made the very difficult decision to close the doors to. This is to protect our patients and staff and will be reviewed daily.
Our phone lines will still be switched on and our Reception team are working hard to ensure that every patient that has an appointment booked in the coming weeks is contacted. The appointments will go ahead as telephone calls or Video calls.
You can request your repeat medication using our online service Patient Access. Please call reception so they are able to set you up on this.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY UNLESS ADVISED TO DO SO
** We are now offering Video Consultations with our patients**
