Coronavirus update 30 March 2020

Please read the most up-to-date information on Covid-19 (Coronavirus) from the NHS
We are now in the delay phase of our response to COVID-19. Due to the current situation, the directive for GP surgeries is to triage all patients with a telephone consultation in the first instance. Should the GP feel it is necessary to see you face-to-face, they will arrange the appointment themselves. We have also suspended all online pre-bookable appointments until further notice. If you have a non urgent medical query, please use our eConsult service on our website. 

As of Monday 30th March 2020, the surgery will not be accepting any paper prescriptions in the short term due to Covid-19, We ask that all patients register for Systmonline to order your prescription. Please contact the surgery for our team to organise this for you. If you do not have internet access, please contact us and we will try to assist you with your prescription request.

Thank you for your cooperation at this difficult time.
