For the benefit of all our patients and staff from 15th June all patients should wear a facecovering whilst in the surgery. We do not have sufficient stocks of scarce clinical masks to hand out supplies. Any facecovering is sufficient.
Please also limit the number of people attending the practice and only bring a relative/friend/carer into the building if absolutly neccessary.
If you are concerned please do not attend the surgery go to NHS 111 online or call 111 and please see these links for more information:
Message From Dr Justin Morris Senior Partner
These are difficult times and I have asked my reception team to collect additional details from patients when they phone for appointments. This includes symptoms and conditions. We need this information to help us manage the risks to patients and staff.
To minimise the risk to patients please do not come to the surgery at 08.00 to book appointments please telephone. I appreciate that for some this will be inconvenient and I am sorry for any additional delay.
Thank you for your understanding
Covid 19 and Fit Notes
Doctors are not doing sick notes / fit for work notes for anyone who is self isolating.
Please contact NHS 111 online or NHS website. Patients will be required to answer a few questions, an isolation note will then be emailed to them. If you do not have an email address the note can be sent to a trusted family member, friend or directly to your employer.
The isolation note service can be accessed via https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/
as well as via the NHS app.
