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



 


 


 

We provide some services which are outside our NHS work and therefore attract charges based on the British Medical Association's (BMA) scale. This includes:

  • Insurance claim forms
  • Private sick notes issued before 7 days
  • Power of Attorney
  • OFSTED reports
  • Medicals and reports for sporting events
  • Medicals and reports for HGV, PSV and Taxi licences
  • Firearm / Shotgun licences

Please contact the secretary to arrange medical examinations; she will advise you of our fees at the time of booking your appointment.

Taxi / HGV and driving medicals:  Please arrange a sight test with an optician and ask the optician to complete that section of the form before booking your medical at the surgery.

Passport Forms - Due to revised regulations introduced by the Passport Office, GPs are no longer able to countersign passports unless they have known the applicant personally for at least two years (for example as a friend, neighbour or colleague and should not be someone who just knows the applicant professionally).
