Covid-19 Coronavirus Update

We would like to reassure all patients that we will continue to care for you in the best way possible during the Covid-19 Outbreak.  In order for us to do this we are making some changes to the way in which we can do this.  From Monday 16 March 2020 we will be moving all appointments with doctors to a telephone based system.  If you are not at risk of having contracted Covid-19 and do not have any symptoms but need to be seen face to face, the doctor you speak to will arrange an appointment for you.  If you have an appointment with a nurse, you will be called to check that you are not at risk of having contracted Covid-19 and do not have any symptoms and if that is the case, you will be able to come in to the the nurse as normal.  

The guidance issued by the Government - if you have a fever or a cough, you should self-isolate and if you are unwell, you should contact NHS111 -  remains the same.

If you do need to come into the surgery, please ensure you sanitize your hands.  If you are bringing in a prescription request, this is a really good time to review how you order repeat prescriptions to avoid coming into the practice.  You can sign up for online access (click here) or contact your local preferred pharmacy to ask them to order on your behalf.

Coronavirus - Booking appointments

We have been asked to switch off patient access to booking routine appointments on line in order that each patient can be triaged in an effort to halt the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19).  If you need to make an appointment please call the practice.  You will be asked 3 questions before the appointment is booked for you.  Please bear with us at this time as we will have an increased number of patients calling us so the phones will be even busier than normal. 

In line with national guidance, if you have symptoms and have either travelled from any of the affected areas of the world or have been in close contact with a confirmed case of Coronavirus, please do not come into the practice, call NHS111 free on 111 for more advice.  Updated guidance on Coronavirus can be found here.

New Patient Registration

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.

If you have moved into the area and wish to register with the surgery, you will be asked to fill in a registration form. All new patients are offered a health check, before arrival of the medical records. It is essential that you keep this appointment.

New patients will also be asked to provide 2 forms of proof of identity i.e. photo ID such as a passport or driving licence and also proof of their address such as a council tax or utility bill. Please contact reception for more information.

As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the doctor. 

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.  Please contact reception for further information.

You may print off a Registration Form -  fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
