Please note entry into the practice is via buzzer entry, this is to ensure that we can reduce the footfall into the practice
to help reduce the risk of COVID-19 to our practice population and staff. Many thanks for your understanding during this time.
We are currently experiencing extremely high demand due to present circumstances. Therefore you may experience a delay when contacting reception, receiving your repeat prescription etc. We do apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
** Important Information Regarding Coronavirus Please Read **
We understand that with the announcement of a new lockdown there are going to be a number of patients concerned about the situation, especially those in very vulnerable risk groups and also those with children attending educational settings. The current government advice about high risk groups is available here:
Further publication is due Monday, and the Government will be writing to affected patients.
The GPs at the surgery have no additional information above and beyond this and are unable to help with requests for sick notes or other letters in such circumstances.
For people concerned about children attending educational settings; we understand and sympathise with the concerns around children attending school at this time, especially if a household has extremely vulnerable members. As a practice we are very sorry, but decisions about children attending school are not ours to make. It's not something that we can help with. We would suggest a discussion between the people involved and the school to decide on the best course of action.
