Noticeboard

 Patient Coronavirus Notice


Do not visit the GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you suspect you have Coronavirus.


Why are GPs needing to work differently? Your GP surgery needs your support, so it can be there to support you. We can’t meet this challenge alone. General practice desperately needs help from the Government. Visit www.bma.org.uk/supportyoursurgery to find out more We want to be honest with you. General practice will continue to struggle to meet the growing needs of patients. This isn’t the way we want it to be, but practices are open, and we are here for you when you need us. GPs, their teams, and patients have faced an extremely challenging time during the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite lockdown measures lifting the pandemic is still not over. Face-to-face contact has been limited across all NHS services to protect you and keep you safe from the risk of infection. For more information please go to the link on the right or visit the BMA website as suggested above.

Home Visits

Doctor's bagIf possible please try to telephone reception before 11am if you require a home visit.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
