In light of the recent media reports over the weekend we would like to confirm we continue to have our doors open as they have been for several weeks now. We would also like to confirm that we will be continuing to offer necessary face-to-face appointments as we have been doing throughout the pandemic. More and more appointments have been naturally offered as face-to-face over the last few weeks as the COVID infection rate declines. However we must all remain very cautious due to the increased risks emerging from the Indian variant (which has established pockets of local infection) and so we must ensure that you are safe when you visit the surgery. We need to continue to limit how many patients are in the building at any one time. This will be achieved by staggering face-to-face appointments throughout the day and continuing to triage some appointments over the telephone. More information on this is available in the attached letter.

Have you asked your pharmacist?
Minor short term illnesses can be treated at home or by getting advice from your local pharmacy. You don't always need a doctor or nurse for:
- Coughs, colds and blocked nose
- Hay fever
- Headaches or Migraines
- Indigestion and heartburn
- Minor pains (aches, sprains or strains)
- Constipation or diahorrea
- Temperature or fever
If your symptoms are not improving after a few days of treatment with over the counter medications, you should contact the local pharmacist or your GP for more advice.
If you do not have access to a smartphone but do have access to a computer you can still access our online services by coming into the surgery with photo identification. We will then give you a username and password to access the same online services as the NHS app. Currently they both have the same information and features, but in future the NHS app will have much more to offer than our services.
For more information on this, please visit the Online services page
