Changes due to Coronavirus 

Due to the current outbreak of coronavirus we have followed national guidelines and we are taking precautionary measures to minimise the number of patients attending the surgery. We have made the following changes:

- we have temporarily suspended online appointment bookings.

- appointments will all be telephone triage first. 

- If you are asked to attend the surgery you must be wearing a face covering or mask and use the hand sanitiser provided. While waiting in reception you must adhere to the 2 metre distancing rule and wait in a safe place away from moving traffic.

- if you are attending the surgery then you should come alone, we cannot allow other family members into the building.

Face Covering Exemptions

We understand that the general public may be anxious about the wearing of face masks, however, GPs are not contractually obliged, or in a position, to provide exemption letters or certificates for patients who believe they should be exempt from wearing a face covering.

The guidance suggests there is no requirement for the public to provide evidence, medical or otherwise, for exemption therefore a self declaration from the individual should be sufficient.

For more information please visit the GOV.UK website for further information on the use of face coverings:
