COVID-19 INFORMATION

Coronavirus (COVID-19) 

COVID-19 current NHS England guidance for general practice is that ALL patients should be triaged remotely and that an online consultation system should be in place to support this.

 

Please do not come to the surgery unless you have been asked to a member of the practice team  - all patients seeking medical attention are being triaged remotely.

We are asking all patients who feel they need medical care to first use our eConsult service 

This system will ask you in detail about your problem and support us to safely prioritise our work and provide you with efficient care. In most cases we will respond with a phone call from a GP and where possible this will be your own GP. We also have facilities for video consultation or SMS response and if a face to face examination is essential we will arrange one.

In an effort to help protect the health of staff and patients we are asking ALL patients to wear face protection, covering your mouth and nose when entering the practice. This is after recent government guidance encouraging people to wear face protection in public places. 

If you need to order your repeat medication the easiest way to do this is by setting up an Online Account.  Your Doctor’s secretary or one of our Reception Team can help with this over the phone.

Our busiest time is Mondays. You can help us to manage our workload by avoiding completing eConsults for non-urgent problems at the weekend or on Mondays
