During the coronavirus outbreak the surgery remains open but will be operating differently.  We are suspending booking all face to face appointments with effect from 16 March 2020 until further notice.  Please do not attend the surgery.  If you believe that you need to be seen, please request a telephone appointment.  If you already have an appointment booked do not attend the surgery. If it is clinically appropriate the clinician will arrange for you to be seen. Essential nursing appointments will continue as usual for now. This action is essential to maintain your health and the health of your community as advised by the Department of Health.


If your query is about Coronavirus go to 111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or call 111


Anyone with a new persistant cough and/or fever should self-isolate for 7 days; do not call 111 or contact other healthcare providers.  If symptoms deteriorate and you feel you need medical care, contact NHS 111.  Testing will only be done for those in hospital with symptoms

Test Results: The doctor, nurse or healthcare assistant will be able to tell you at the time of your consultation when your results are expected to be available. It is possible to have access to test results using our online service, alternatively you are able to phone the receptionists for your results between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm. 

 

Please note:   our receptionists are unable to give detailed information on your results but they will provide you with the information that has been noted on your record by the doctor.  If you have any concerns and would like to discuss your results in more detail please ask for a doctor or nurse to call you back.  Alternatively you may wish to make an appointment with your GP or nurse.
