COVID19 To minimise the risk of spreading the virus we have made changes to our appointments system:
OPEN ACCESS CLINICS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED INDEFINATELY AND ALL APPOINTMENTS REQUIRE A TELEPHONE ASSESSMENT
No patient will be granted entry to the premises without an appointment following a telephone assessment. Online appointment booking facility has been suspended , walk in remains suspended. MSK Physiotherapy have suspended face-to-face appointments but are providing telephone consultations. Phone us to book an appointment. Mental Health Liaison Service is providing telephone consultations for any patient suffering with anxiety or depression. Phone us for an appointment.
Common Minor Ailments -If you suffer from a minor ailment then, rather than an appointment with your GP, you could consult your local pharmacist under the ‘Choose Pharmacy Common Ailments Service’. This builds upon their expertise allowing community pharmacists to offer some treatments free of charge to eligible patients on the NHS. Community Pharmacists can already advise patients on a wide range of minor ailments and either recommend treatment or refer on to another healthcare professional. Using the common ailments service as a first point of call for your health consultation will help to reduce the demands on GP services. You can still access advice and treatment for common ailments from your local pharmacy –
Please request any house-calls before 11am, you will receive a call from a doctor to assess your requirements. House-calls are reserved for patients who are genuinely housebound.
|If you cannot keep an appointment please inform us as soon as possible on 02920 483 126 (if you do not have My Health Online access) so that the appointment may be offered to another patient and hence make it easier to get appointments when you ring in.|
