Recent Media Regarding GP Practices
The latest media notification is that general practice will have open doors from Monday 17th May 2021 and that Face to Face Appointments will be available.
The Covid-19 Pandemic is still with us and the Practice will do everything it can to keep patients, visitors and staff members safe. Variants of Covid-19 maybe in the area and we DO NOT want to expose patients and staff to this threat.
The GP Practice has remained open and has been providing safe face to face consultations during the Pandemic. Different ways of accessing GP services remain in place.
The practice will continue to operate in this safe way and no immediate changes will be made to the procedures in place.
We thank you for your understanding in keeping everyone safe.

Attending Surgery - Current Procedure
Current guidance states that a face covering is required prior to any admittance to a healthcare setting.
If the front door is closed please use the intercom at the main door to inform reception staff that you have arrived, the staff will have screening questions for all patients attending and will take your temperature.
The intercom should not be used to discuss any other matters with the receptionist.
If you have an appointment booked in advance, a member of the team will contact you to ensure patients with symptoms are not coming to the practice.
Demand on the telephone lines has significantly increased, therefore please bear with our staff during this busy period.
We thank you for your support and patience in this matter.
