Noticeboard

Coronavirus guidance   Do not attend the Surgery if you have any possible symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) the most common of which are a recent onset of a new continuous cough and/or high temperature, even if you have an appointment. Click this link https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 for further information

If you have a face to face appointment with a Doctor or Nurse, please wear a face covering when you attend the appointment. Thank you

If you request a Doctors appointment, the Doctor will phone you back, and decide with you if you need to be seen. Do not attend the surgery unless you have an appointment arranged by the Doctor or Nurse. If an appointment for the nurse has been made in advance, please do not attend if you develop symptoms by the time of the appointment

Due to the increased workload, please allow 72 hours from ordering to collecting medication and please note the front door will be closed between 1pm & 1.30pm for cleaning

With immediate effect we have stopped all drop-in appointments with the nurse. You must have an appointment before seeing the nurse. We have temporarily suspended booking appointments for the Doctor online, so the Doctor can speak to anyone requesting an appointment. Telephone appointments can continue to be booked online.

You can continue to collect medication (please do not order too early) from the surgery but we are relying on our patients to self-isolate and not attend the surgery if they have any cough/breathing/respiratory symptoms, fever or flu/cold like symptoms. If you have any of these symptoms please ask someone else to attend the surgery if you have any medication to collect. If you are self-isolating at home and not leaving your home premises for any reason, then please let us know and we will ensure you have your medication delivered to your property.

ONLINE MEDICATION ORDERING  If you wish to write a message to dispensary when you order medication, please write it in the box on the second page, beneath the list of medication you have ordered, not the first page (as this deletes the list of medication you want). Thank you

Medication reviews. In future on your repeat prescription list, if there is a message in bold print, please take note of it as it will be a message for you personally. (The automatic message has been removed). We are reviewing how medication reviews are carried out and you may note your review date may have been changed.
