****PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT ACCEPT PRESCRIPTION REQUEST VIA THE TELEPHONE *****
We’ve moved to a new HUB!
We would like to inform all our patients that we are moving HUBS from 1st July 2020.
Our new hub will be located at:
17 Holly Ln,
Appointments at Poplars Surgery must be booked in advance through your own GP practice (Reservoir Road Surgery) and are available with a range of clinicians including GP's, nurses and health care assistants. Please ask a receptionist for further information.
Following NHS guidelines all of our GP appointments are being converted to telephone consultations as of 17/03/2020
If the GP feels that they need to have a face to face consultation with you they will book an appointment to do so.
Prescriptions can be requested online or via email: email@example.com
If you have not yet nominated a pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent to, you may want to consider doing this now. We will continue to provide updates to our patients via our website.
***DUE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) STARTING MONDAY 16TH MARCH 2020 WE WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTING WALK-IN APPOINTMENTS/BOOK ON THE DAY.
YOU MUST PHONE THE SURGERY TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT. WE WILL HAVE 4 LINES IN USE TO ANSWER ALL CALLS. THE RECEPTIONISTS WILL NEED TO FOLLOW PROTOCOL IN BOOKING APPOINTMENTS BY ASKING YOU A SERIES OF QUESTIONS BEFORE THEY CAN BOOK AN APPOINTMENT***
Out of Hours Always telephone - 465 2950. The out-of-hours service is for emergencies only, when the surgery is closed
Home Visits Requests for home visits should be made before 10am where possible, by telephoning 465 2950. The receptionists will ask you for the reason for the visit; this is to allow the doctor to assess the urgency.
Test Results If you have had a blood test, urine check etc, you will be asked to either telephone or come to the surgery for the result. Unless the doctor has told you to call before, please try us after 1.00 pm on 465 2948.

Please ask a receptionist for further information.
Social Prescribing clinics - Fridays from March 2019 -
Please speak to Reception if you can benefit from this.
NHS England have therefore issued guidance to GPs that all non-urgent blood tests should be halted.
Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems will still get one, but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled.
Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.
If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
