Can you help us beat covid? We are hopeful that a vaccine will soon be with us and want to get our patients protected as quickly as possible when it does come out. This is going to be a huge amount of work us and we are hoping to enlist some extra help. If you have experience in healthcare settings as a vaccinator or support roles, and would like to see if you can help us, please contact us at [email protected] with your experience, availability and contact details.
We are in the process of ordering additional flu vaccines to manage the increased demand this year. The release of these additional vaccines is being controlled by NHS England. If you intend to have the flu vaccine this year, please use askmyGP to let us know so we can add you to a waiting list and inform you when appointments are available. Please see our Flu 2020 news item for full details and a downloadable letter.
Please be aware that, due to Covid 19, we will have staff off sick or isolating. Additionally, our consultations will take longer as we rely on telephones / video or need to change PPE and clean rooms between patients. As a result our capacity is limited. Our GPs are working extremely hard to provide as normal a service as possible but, at times, we may need to prioritise those that are acutely unwell and delay seeing those with chronic / long term conditions and non-urgent cases and it may take longer to get back to you following receipt of your enquiry. We appreciate your support as we work through these challenges. To reduce transmission risk, access to the surgeries is restricted to those with pre-arranged appointments. The front desks will be closed so please use Ask My GP or phone the practice to speak to Reception.
Please note that we are very busy on a Monday and may need to reply later in the week where your request is non-urgent. Please only use this service to consult with a GP or to leave an administrative query. Please be available to take a call or attend the practice on the day that you log your askmyGP request. Please telephone if you have been asked to book an appointment with the nursing team. To order repeat medications, please use the Patient Access or NHS app.
If you need urgent medical advice between the hours of 6.30 pm – 8 am weekdays, during weekends or on Bank Holidays – please telephone 111.
NHS 111 can help if you have an urgent medical problem and you’re not sure what to do. For children under 5 call 111
