If you have a new persistent cough and/or fever and/or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste please DO NOT GO TO THE GP SURGERY . Use the NHS 111 online service at https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 to find out what to do next.
In light of recent concerns surrounding COVID-19 the practice has made the decision to change all medical appointments to telephone appointments. Only patients who have been contacted by a clinician will be invited in and we request that you bring your own face covering/mask. All other queries will be dealt with by phone or email. This is a necessary precaution to reduce the risk to our patients. We thank you for your support and understanding in this matter.
