Noticeboard

COVID19

Please do not call the surgery if you have a general query regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.  Instead please look on the NHS Inform Website or use the national helpline 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.

Vaccine roll out to the general public, based on age and underlying health conditions, will start as soon as possible, and will depend on vaccine supply.  This is likely to start in the New Year so please look out for a letter and a leaflet arriving in the post which will invite you to make an appointment for your vaccine.

The first group to receive this will be the over 80’s.  Please avoid calling with any queries about the vaccine or when you will be vaccinated as we are unable to give you any more information at this stage and we need to try to keep the phone lines open for people who are unwell and in need of medical care.

Many thanks for your ongoing patience and cooperation

 

If you have a new cough, fever, loss of taste/smell or are awaiting results of a COVID test, please DO NOT ATTEND the surgery. We are currently operating a telephone triage and if you need to be seen the GP will arrange this. Please wear a face covering if you attend the practice.

 

ALL PRESCRIPTIONS SHOULD BE COLLECTED FROM A NOMINATED CHEMIST, NOT THE SURGERY.


 

From 1st May 2019, the Practice will be closed for staff training on the 1st Wednesday of each month, between 11.45am - 1.15pm. If you need a doctor urgently during this time, please call 9429494 and select option 1.

 

Online Prescriptions

*PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 PANDEMIC, ALL PRESCRIPTIONS MUST BE COLLECTED FROM THE PHARMACY. PLEASE NOMINATE A CHEMIST IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO.

DUE TO THE SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF REQUESTS, THERE WILL BE AN INCREASED TURN AROUND TIME FOR MEDICATION.

WE ARE UNABLE TO PRESCRIBE ITEMS SUCH AS PARACETAMOL AND INHALERS IF THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT IS ALREADY ON YOUR MEDICATION LIST.*

We are moving to a new system for processing prescriptions called Patient Access.
