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, we have asked our receptionists to ask about the reason for your call so they can book you an appointment with the most appropriate Health Professional and you will be offered either a telephone or face to face appointment. Do not attend the surgery unless you have an appointment arranged. 

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.
