Accessing our services – update Dec 2021

Dear patients,

We have changed the way we book our appointments in response to the latest Government guidance on COVID-19, offering a range of ways for you to safely get the help and support you need. We are open and continuing to care for our patients.

Patients who request an appointment will be assessed by telephone or online, and a clinician will determine how best to meet your care needs. You will be offered a face-to-face appointment if it is essential for you to be seen, or a video appointment if appropriate.

If you do not need to come into the surgery, you will be given appropriate self-care advice, treatment or information on what to do if you become more unwell.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time of unprecedented levels of demand on NHS services. Please treat our staff with dignity and respect.
