Coronavirus Patient Information

Practice Access

Due to Covid-19, please DO NOT come to the practice unless you have not been requested to do so.  All appointments are now being conducted by telephone in the first instance.

If you have any other queries please phone the surgery. If you have communication difficulties you may attend the practice to inform us so that we make alternative arrangements for you to seek medical attention should you need it.


Due to the coronavirus outbreak we will temporarily accept repeat medication requests over the phone.  You can also order medication by signing up for online services which can be accessed through our website, or by signing up for the NHS app.  Please speak to a member of staff to register for online services if you have not already done so.

New Registrations

Due to the situation with Coronavirus we will not be accepting new registration forms at the practice in person.  You can either post your completed registration pack including the GMS1 form in the post box at either site or send by Royal Mail, where one of our members of staff will process your application as soon as possible.  If you are unable to do either you can register as a temporary patient over the phone.

Sick Notes

Please see the information on the Gov.uk for advice to employees regarding isolation notes - Advice for employees 

Face Coverings

Patients are being asked to wear a face mask/covering when attending either surgery for any reason. Children under 11 are currently not required to, but may still wish to. If you don't have a mask, a scarf or something similar to cover your face and nose can also be used.  Thank you for your co-operation.

Face Covering Alert

Face Covering Exemption Cards

The latest government advice is that face masks/ coverings should now be worn in shops and on all public transport. However if you cannot wear a covering due to a disability or health problem you will be eligible to use an exemption card.

Face Covering Exemptions 

We are aware that some patients might be getting anxious about the Governments recent announcement around the use of face masks/coverings in various public settings.
GP's are unfortunately not in a position to provide individual risk assessments or letters for patients who feel that they should be exempt from wearing face masks/covering. Please refer to gov.uk website.
