Appointments during the Covid-19 pandemic
From Monday 15th June 2020 we are able to take bookings for routine face to face GP appointments again, providing that you have no symptoms of coronavirus and have not been in contact with anyone who has.
Reducing the risk of infection
We are working hard to reduce the risk of infection to anyone working in or visiting our practice. From Monday 15th June 2020 the front door will be open and we will be operating a one way system for all patients (the disabled entrance is still open for those who need it). Regular cleaning is taking place and numbers of patients in the building will be limited.
We are still implementing the following precautionary, temporary measures. Please note that all essential services are still being provided and the practice remains open.
- Requests for appointments are being taken by telephone only and assessed by a clinician. If you need to be seen, an appointment will be arranged for you. This includes visits to patients at home if clinically indicated.
- All visitors will be expected to use the hand sanitiser upon entry and wear a face covering.
- Documentation such as blood forms and MED3s can still be collected from the practice, but we can arrange to post or email them to you if this is helpful. MED3s for patients self-isolating due to suspected Coronavirus must ring NHS111 for a Unique Reference Number (URN) which will be accepted by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP)
We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but hope you will understand our efforts to try and keep our practice infection-free.
Please note that we are unable to provide medical certificates if you are unable to return to work for childcare or shielding reasons. This is an employment matter and should be discussed with your employer directly.
