Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
If you need to visit the surgery, please be aware of the following changes we have made which will help to reduce the spread of infection.
Wearing a face covering or face mask
Following the Government's new guidance on the extended use of face masks in NHS healthcare settings, all patients and visitors will need to wear a face covering or a face mask when entering the building.
You should bring your own face covering or mask.
This new guidance will be enforced from Monday 15 June.
There may be exceptions such as young children and people with breathing difficulties.
For further information, please speak to a member of staff.
It's important that you wear and remove your mask properly, as this can be a source of infection otherwise.
Please remember that face masks are not an alternative to social distancing and good hand hygiene, which are the most important precautions we can take against infection.
We have installed a number of signs and stickers to reinforce the social distancing regulations.
You must keep two metres apart from other people and should walk on the left hand side of corridors and stairs.
If you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms (a high temperature or a new, continuous cough, fever, chest tightness or breathlessness) please use the NHS 111 SERVICE or contact the practice with your concerns.
Do not go straight to a doctor's surgery or hospital.
HELP STOP THE SPREAD OF GERMS:
To prevent the spread of viruses and infections to and from others, we recommend that patients phone the surgery for all appointments and enquiries.
Our phone system has been changed recently to cope with the demand
