CORONAVIRUS - (Covid-19) - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
‘To reduce your chances of catching COVID-19 and reduce pressure on the practice during this busy time, GP & Nurse Practitioner appointments will be carried out over the phone or through video or online consultations unless there is a clinical need for you to come into the practice. This will help minimise risk while continuing to ensure people get the care and advice that they need.
Patients who need to see a GP or a Nurse Practitioner on the same day will need to ring the surgery to be triaged. You will no longer be able to walk into the surgery to do this.
You can also call NHS 111.
You should only request a Covid-19 test if you display any symptoms please click here for more information.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING BLOOD TESTS:
The hospital has informed us that there is a national shortage of reagents used in medical labs to process test results, which means that only a small number of very urgent bloods can be processed.
The shortage of the reagent is a national problem and has been escalated to the highest levels within the NHS, we do not have a date for the return of normal services, however we have been told in the worst case it could be a few weeks.
Unfortunately this means we have to cancel a limited number of tests. If you think your bloods are needed urgently then please contact Reception who will check with the requesting GP or Duty Doctor to decide if this is the case.
We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.
