GP surgeries do not have the facilities to diagnose or treat this infection so please stay at home and follow government advice on self isolation and testing:

  1. A new continuous cough
  2. High temperature (37.8 degrees c or higher)
  3. Loss of/change in smell or taste

Most fit and healthy people will recover from the virus reasonably quickly and without medical intervention. However, if during that isolation period you become very unwell please contact NHS111 who will arrange for you to be treated either in hospital or at home.

Advice on managing COVID in isolation

We have removed face to face appointments from our online booking system and will be offering telephone appointments to all patients who want to see or speak to a GP, in order to minimise the number of people circulating in our building.

We actively encourage patients to use the Econsult facility on our homepage to contact the Doctor in the first instance, all requests for appointments will now be triaged by telephone.

For patients who do need to be seen, GP appointments, based on clinical need, will be available each afternoon.

Patients who have been triaged and given an appointment should ring the bell for admission. .

Patients who have a high risk of infection will be advised to wait in their car for staff to call them into the surgery building.

Face masks must be worn for appointments.

All other patients should contact the surgery by telephone (01434 220203)

Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
