Covid-19 Updates

Dear Patients
With the recent rise in covid cases; we would advise any patients attending the surgery and specifically clinically vulnerable or if suffering from any respiratory conditions to wear a mask and to use the sanitisers that are available in reception.
Thank you.

To all our Patients

We remain concerned about the effect of Covid-19 and, although we are pleased to see the restrictions relaxed, we are still mindful that rates of Covid in the community are very high. The demand on health care services remains significant as a result of staff sickness and patient need.  So, we must prioritise the patients who are most vulnerable.

It is important that you continue to put your health first and seek urgent medical help when you need it.

You may have to wait longer than usual for a routine appointment and there may be a delay in accessing some non-urgent reviews.  We are working very hard to get back to normal, so please be patient with our staff.  We are very grateful for your understanding.

Please continue to wear a face mask if you enter the practice, infection control guidance for GP surgeries remains the same and requires us to continue to take precautions.

Before contacting the practice, please do consider self-help and pharmacy options:
