For up to date information regarding changes to appointments and prescriptions during the coronavirus pandemic. This may change on a daily basis
DO NOT come to the surgery if you have any symptoms such as a temperature, loss of taste or smell, or a cough, or any symptoms of Covid that have been described as a runny nose, sore throat, headache or sickness, then stay at home, get a PCR test and follow the Government guidelines, even if you have been vaccinated.
This is essential to protect you, our team and others.
A facemask/covering must be worn at all times when attending the surgery.
Due to Covid-19, all requests for an appointment will receive an initial Telephone Consultation with a GP. Following this telephone consultation, the GP will then make a decision as to whether you need to be seen face to face, if you do you will be offered an appointment with the most appropriate clinician on the same day as your call. Alternatively, it may mean that you will be told that you do not need to come and see a GP, and will be given advice over the phone on how to treat your illness.
Please note, online appointments cannot be made due to the current situation.
All repeat prescriptions will be sent to your chosen chemist - no collections in surgery. For further information please click here
For acute prescriptions ordered before 10.30am these can be collected between 2pm and 3pm.
If ordered after 10.30am, these can be collected between 4.15pm and 5.15pm.
Please do not ring the surgery to check if ready - you will be called if the GP wishes to speak with you.
When you request an appointment, our receptionists will ask you the reason why you are calling. If you tell us the reason for your call, the receptionist might be able to give you information about services or self-care options that you could access for your symptoms – for example the minor ailments service at your local pharmacy.
* Receptionists are NOT trying to be doctors or make medical assessments and they are duty bound to respect your confidentiality, in exactly the same way the GPs are.*
When you telephone the surgery to book an appointment, the receptionist will ask you the following question:
- Can I ask the reason for your appointment today?
This is because the receptionist has a number of different options and types of appointments available, and can direct you to the most appropriate option for your specific problem. The best option might be to go to the pharmacy or if you do need an appointment it might be the Practice Nurse, Physiotherapist or Mental Health Practitioner is the best trained person to help, or perhaps another member of our clinical team.
