To support General Practice, NHS England have created an animation to explain how you can continue to access GP service, including how to get in contact, the different ways care may be delivered, and how face to face appointments have changed.

As you will be are aware, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is continuing to spread across the UK. As such, our clinical staff are now screening all appointment requests and we will try to help you by phone – or video call initially. When necessary patients will be offered a face to face consultation. If you have an appointment booked with a GP, please do not come to the surgery – please stay at home and the doctor will call you at the allocated time.
By only bringing in patients who really cannot be helped over the phone / by video call, we are all helping to limit the spread of coronavirus.
- All enquiries and appointment requests will be screened by a GP. You will then be contacted offering a choice of appointment options
- Face-to-face appointments remain available to all patients, but will only be booked in a timed slot, with an appropriate member of our team, if necessary, and after discussion with one of the GPs
- Routine vaccinations (child and adult) & cancer screening tests (smears etc) are continuing as a priority
- Phone and video appointments are available to all patients, via secure NHS software, and might be the safest most convenient option.
- Online forms are available to submit queries and ask for non urgent advice and administrative queries.
If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.
