In order to maintain the safety of our patients and staff, we are running a telephone triage system for all appointments. A clinician will gather as much information about your problem as is possible over the phone. Some problems can be handled by just a phone call and there is no need to attend the surgery.
If you are required to attend the surgery, the clinician will arrange a suitable time for you, to minimise contact with others. You will be asked to wear a mask if you have one, but we will provide one if you haven’t. All patients will be screened for covid-19 symptoms prior to attending.
Please call 01244 324136 to speak to a Receptionist if you are currently unwell or need medical advice. Your call will be triaged and you will be added to our telephone triage list.
Alternatively you can use the symptom check on NHS App or connect to Patient Triage below. E-consult will not be available to use after 1st April 2021.
For information regarding the COVID19 Vaccine or your vaccination certificate please visit our 'News' Section tab above.
Can we also remind patients of the importance of attending for screening appointments, immunisations and other reviews when they are due. Whilst we understand many patients may feel anxious attending the surgery during these difficult times, we want to reassure you we are doing everything we can to maintain your safety.”
