Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of patients and staff which means your patient experience is subject to change.
Please do not attend the GP practice.
If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus, including a new continuous cough or a high temperature.
You are advised to stay at home for 14 days.
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service (https://111.nhs.uk) that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.
Only call 111 direct, if you cannot go online, or are advised to do so by the online service.

For all other queries, the practice will only be dealing with urgent issues. We are not offering routine face to face appointments. All clinical or administrative queries will be dealt with over the phone. A patient will only be seen if a Clinician feels you need a face to face appointment after a telephone consultation. This is following national guidance during the coronavirus pandemic.
