A quick guide to attending the surgery
All patients will be asked to wash their hands on entering the surgery building and asked whether they are experiencing a new constant cough or fever. Please be patient during this time and help us to minimise the potential spread of infection.
- Cough or fever – call 111 and do NOT attend the surgery. If 111 advises speaking to a GP, telephone the surgery and a GP will call you.
- Same-day GP appointments and questions – if you are unable to complete an eConsult (accessed via a link on our website and responded to within 48 hours) you will be put on a list for someone to contact you. If you need to attend the surgery, we will let you know and arrange this.
- All routine GP appointments – all patients will be telephoned by a GP who will only ask you to come to the surgery if appropriate.
- All nursing appointments – if you do not have a cough or fever, you may attend. If you are unsure about whether you should attend (e.g. you are in a high risk category), the nurse will assess your need to attend by telephone.
- All COVID-19 related questions that are not appropriate for 111, e.g. “am I at high risk”, patients should consult the GOV.UK website (https://www.gov.uk/) and follow the link to Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the first instance. If you do not find the medical information you require, please complete an eConsult (accessed via a link on our website) and you will receive a response within 48 hours.
