Stay Alert - Control The Virus - Save Lives
As part of safeguarding patients and staff, patients are only permitted to enter the practice building if they are wearing a face mask. Although not a substitute for social distancing the use of face masks by both patients and staff will help to protect and manage the risk of further spread of the virus. The NHS is not able to provide masks for patients who are expected to obtain them themselves before coming to the building. Further guidance on staying safe outside your home and in the workplace can be found on the gov.uk website.
We have now reintroduced the option for patients to make face to face appointments to see a doctor. Some of these appointments can be booked up to two weeks in advance whilst others will only be made available to be booked on that day.
If you telephone the practice for an appointment a receptionist may ask you to consider whether your reason to see a doctor or nurse could be dealt with over the telephone or whether it needs a face to face appointment. If you feel the problem can be dealt with over the phone you will be offered a telephone consultation with either a doctor or nurse.
