COVID-19 – VISITING YOUR GP SURGERY

PLEASE WEAR FACE COVERINGS.  COVID-19 PROTECTIONS ARE STILL IN PLACE.  In line with current Government guidance patients are required to continue to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings.  Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so is key to preventing spread of infection.

CONTINUE TO RESPECT SOCIAL DISTANCING (2m).

TEST AND ISOLATE IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS.  If you have symptoms you must get a PCR test as soon as possible and before visiting your GP.  Rapid lateral flow tests should not be used to confirm infection.  It is vital that you and anyone in your household isolate until you receive your test result, and for 10 days thereafter if the result is positive.

REMEMBER TO WASH/SANITISE HANDS REGULARLY.

There are several ways to make an appointment

We always try to be as flexible as possible. We offer late appointments on Monday until 19:30 and early appointments on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 07:30. We will always endeavor to give you an appointment at a time that suits you, including the future – just ask.

A certain number of appointments are held back to be released daily allowing the opportunity for urgent cases to be seen.  Please remember if you can’t attend your appointment cancel it so another patient can use it.

If you are unable to get an appointment the pharmacy first scheme may be able to help you. Local pharmacies provides expert advice on common health problems and many pharmacies have early and late opening hours.  If you receive free prescriptions you can use the Pharmacy First scheme which allows people to go straight to their pharmacist to receive treatment without needing to get a prescription first.

  • Practice website
  • Automated telephone prescriptions service on 0191 2598622
  • In the surgery by placing request in the white repeat prescriptions box at reception.
  • Stamped addressed envelope sent 1 week before the medication is required.
