Face coverings at the surgery

Important

Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all of our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.

At the surgery patients still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery. Staff will continue to wear PPE.

We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that will protect people.

In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients then we did pre-COVID (face to face, by phone, by eConsult and by video), not counting vaccinating the local adult population against COVID-19.

Our surgery has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of COVID and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for all patients as we can.

If the surgery is closed

If the situation is urgent and you do not know what to do, you can:

  • go to 111.nhs.uk (for people aged 5 and over only)
  • call 111

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Call 999 if it's a medical emergency

Call 999 if someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.
