COVID-19 Vaccine update
We are currently offering the 2nd dose of Covid vaccine to those in the priority groups before moving onto 1st doses for those over 40. We will contact patients as soon as we can to book you in.
Face covering needed if entering surgery
If you are invited to attend a face to face consultation at the surgery or to collect your medication, you need to wear a face covering. This does not need to be a mask but a covering made of cloth or other material (this can be homemade) and should cover the nose and mouth of the wearer. The purpose of wearing a face covering is to prevent transmission from asymptomatic people to others who they may come into contact with.
Patients requesting new/alternative medication on their repeat scripts
If you require additional or alternative medication - even if you have had these before for a similar complaint, please call the Practice on 01406 370265 (opt 1) between 8.00-11.00 Mon-Fri to discuss with one of our GP's as we cannot dispense new medication without a consultation.
We need your mobile contact details
We now have available additional resources to enable us to liaise with our patients via text message which will be beneficial to both us as a Practice and our patients. Please ensure we are aware of your up-to-date mobile no. to enable us to reap the benefits of this facility. Anyone who has provided us with a mobile number will be opted in to receive text messages (unless you specifically ask us not to) many thanks.
Repeat Prescriptions 5 days required
Due to unprecedented volumes of repeat prescriptions being required, we need your co-operation to enable us to support all our patients medication needs. Whilst the Coronavirus situation remains in place, you will need to allow 5 working days for us to process your request. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause. Where possible, please do not leave collection of your medication to Friday as the number of patients attending is causing social distancing issues.
You may collect your medication between 08.00 - 12 noon and 13.30 and 18.00.
Thank you for your help and understanding during these difficult times.
We thank you in advance of your co-operation during this period.
The UK's Chief Medical Officer advises: Anyone with a new continuous cough OR fever OR loss of/change in smell or taste should self-isolate for 7 days or longer if they still have symptoms. The individual's household should also self-isolate for 10 days as per the current guidelines.
Only contact NHS 111 if your symptoms get worse.
