COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS CONTINGENCY PLANNING
As part of our contingency planning for #Coronavirus we are trying to minimise the number of patients attending the practice.
As a practice our priority is to keep our practice team & patients safe.
Please read to following information and advice carefully and pass share with friends and family.
- The Government and the NHS have updated all the information and advice on Covid -19. If you have a NEW CONTINUOUS COUGH OR HIGH TEMPERATURE [37.8 DEGREES OR HIGHER] you should stay at home for 7 days. This has been increased to 14 days if a member of your household has any symptoms. The 14 days applies to ALL MEMBERS OF THE HOUSEHOLD. DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY OR ASK FOR A HOME VISIT

We are a 'parkrun practice'
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology we use also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction. You can read our Patient Charter Standards that we have set for the benefit of our patients.
