Coronavirus

As of today (16.3.2020) the Practice will be adopting a new system to help reduce our patients and staff being exposed to Coronavirus/COVID-19.

All appointments with any member of the team will be telephone triaged by a Clinician and they will make the decision if you need to attend.  This applies for all appointments and not just GP appointments.

If you feel you need to visit the Practice for anything please call first 01902 305899.

Please use or sign up to online access, this is mainly to request repeat prescriptions.

Repeat prescriptions can also be requested via email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or telephone 01902 305899 at the present time.

We cannot stress enough, do not attend the Practice if you have a high temperature and persistent cough, you are to self isolate for 7 days and if symptoms escalate you should contact NHS 111.

The practice door will be closed and only opened once you have been triaged.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, thank you for your co-operation during this time
