Wednesday 5th January 2021 - The Practice is extremely short staff due to staff sickness.  We are answering the calls as quickly as possible, but we recognise due to high demand this will increase waiting times.  Please be patient, the staff are working very hard.  Your support and understanding is appreciated.  

We have been asked by the Government and NHS England to prioritise the COVID Booster Vaccination programme, this will no doubt have an impact on routine appointments for our patients.  We apologise for the impact this may cause and ask all our patients to be understanding whilst we help protect our communities against COVID-19.

Our appointment system for GP appointments has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We recommend all patients ring the Practice to arrange an appointment. 

You will be offered a telephone appointment in the first instance.  The GP will contact you and assess you over the telephone.  They may also conduct a video consultation if this is necessary.  If the GP needs to assess you face to face, we are advising patient where possible, to attend the Practice on their own. 

Please do not attend the Practice early for your appointment.  If you are anymore than 15 minutes early for your appointment you may be asked to return closer to your appointment time.  This is to ensure that we can maintain the social distancing which has been recommended by the Government.  Your co-operation during this time is much appreciated.

Following Government guidelines, we recommend all our patients to wear a face covering when entering the Practice. This does not need to be a medical grade mask.

We continue to follow Government guidelines and you may see some changes when you arrive in Practice.  These systems have been put in place to protect our patients and our staff.  Your co-operation is very much appreciated.
