CORONAVIRUS - COVID-19 APPOINTMENTS POLICY: Only patients who have been invited to the surgery by a Clinician will be admitted to the surgery, until further notice. We accept this is a significant step, however we must protect the safety of our patients and staff as we try to delay the spread of the virus. All appointments will be via telephone only. If the Clinician wishes to see you face to face they will advise you accordingly. You may be offered the opportunity to have a video consultation. If you are given a face to face appointment, please note that the main surgery entrance door will remain locked until further notice to minimise the risk of spreading the virus. Please press the Intercom button for attention then proceed to the side door on the left hand side of the building where you will be met by a Clinician. When in the building please observe social distancing rules and maintain a distance of 2 metres between yourself and others at all times.
CORONAVIRUS - COVID-19 ONLINE PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS: Please help to prevent the spread of Coronavirus by reducing paper prescription requests wherever possible.
