What are GPs and the Practice Team doing? Working harder than ever

National guidance, due to the Covid-19 pandemic has meant the way we work has had to change. Please click here to learn more.

NHS Patients, staff and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in GP Practices

We would like to advise that to protect our vulnerable patients and our staff there will be no changes to our current procedures after Monday 19 July 2021 and the easing of Covid-19 restrictions in some environments.

NHS England have advised that GP Practices must continue to limit face to face contact by using methods such as telephone consultations and, where face to face attendance is clinically necessary, face coverings should continue to be worn. We are obliged to follow this guidance. This guidance reduces the risks to our most vulnerable patients, keeping us all safe.

We appreciate your understanding at this challenging time.

3) Using the the AskFirst app.

The Reception team may direct you to another way of contacting the Surgery or another service, please support them at this difficult time. Aggressive behaviour towards any member of our staff will not be tolerated.

If an appointment is necessary, it will be via a telephone/video appointment.
