CORONAVIRUS - Changes to GP Practices nationally
In line with NHS England advice - EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY - we will convert all our appointments to telephone or video consultation. There will be no facility to book direct into a face to face appointment. We MUST limit footfall to the surgery to protect our patients and staff from potential infection. You will receive a call from a clinician who will manage all they can over the phone. After speaking with you, if absolutely necessary, they will offer you a face to face appointment. It is currently still possible to book appointments in advance for nurse-led clinics but availability will likely be reduced. PLEASE do not come to the surgery to manage anything routine.
If you need to order a prescription use online access, email (email@example.com), ask your pharmacy to order or write us a letter. If any patient is not able to order their repeat prescriptions as they do not have online access, during this pandemic, we will take prescription requests over the phone if absolutely necessary. Do not come to reception to order medication.
Please only come to the surgery in person if you have been invited by one of our staff.
