COVID-19 Coronavirus

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us is a little different at the moment.  This is to limit face to face contact where possible and help stop the spread of Coronavirus.

We are open and if you need to see a GP, please ring us on 01746 767121. 

Face to face appointments are available to all patients, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you.

In addition to face to face consultations we are where appropriate offering consultation over the phone or online.  This can be a convenient and flexible way to receive healthcare .

Please do not call for general advice about COVID-19, this information is readily available on the Public Health England website and changes frequently.

 

If you think you have COVID-19 DO NOT come to the Medical Practice, you should ring 119 to book a test or visit 111 online for advice on what to do.  If you think you have COVID-19 and need medical attention ring 111 or 999 if it becomes an emergency.

For up-to-date information on the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus, including the current situation in the UK and information about the virus and its symptoms visit the Public Health England website.
