We apologise for any inconvenience.

PATIENTS ATTENDING FOR APPOINTMENTS AT THE PRACTICE

We are still operating a telephone triage appointment system only and patients should only attend the surgery if they have a pre-arranged appointment.  Where patients have been advised to attend the surgery they should follow infection control guidance, use hand sanitiser provided and adhere to social distancing to minimise the risk of Covid-19.

PLEASE WEAR A FACE COVERING IF YOU HAVE TO VISIT THE PRACTICE

Unless advised otherwise by a GP or Clinician, patients who have been asked to attend a Face to Face appointment should bring their own face covering; this can be a face mask or a scarf.  It should be applied before entering the building and worn at all times while in the building and only removed if to do so by a GP or another Clinician during your consultation.

Please do not attend your appointment if you are unwell or you or any member of your household are suffering from symptoms associated with Covid-19, you should contact the surgery by telephone to re-arrange your appointment.

If you need to order your prescription where possible please order on-line, if you do not have on-line access you can contact the surgery to register for this. You can also ask your nominated pharmacy to order your prescription on your behalf. Otherwise contact the surgery by telephone, wherever possible do not visit the surgery.

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
