PLEASE DO NOT COME IN TO THE SURGERY
With immediate effect will no longer offer any direct booking of face to face GP or ANP appointments and will move to a total triage system until further notice.
If you already have an appointment booked we will see you as planned unless we contact you in advance.
We have taken this action to protect our patients and staff which is our top priority.
HCA & Nurse appointments may also be changing but activity that cannot safely be delayed will continue for now. e.g. blood tests, dressings, immunisations.
We will not be offering the full range of services that you would normally expect for the foreseeable future.
If you have a new persistent cough or fever you should self-isolate for 14 days (from the start of your symptoms) or 7 days if you live alone. If you are unable to manage at home you should contact 111 or 999 in an emergency.
