CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION - UPDATED 4th May 2020
FROM MONDAY 16TH 2020 MARCH WE WILL BE LIMITING THE NUMBER OF FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS. ANY APPOINTMENTS THAT PATIENTS ALREADY HAVE BOOKED WILL BE CONVERTED TO PHONE CALLS WHERE AT ALL POSSIBLE.
PLEASE PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDANCE ON THE 111 LINK AND DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY IF YOU HAVE A NEW CONTINUOUS COUGH OR HIGH FEVER.
TO HELP US HELP ALL OUR PATIENTS PARTICULARLY THE OLDER GENERATION AND THOSE WITH UNDERLYING HEALTH CONDITIONS TRY AND USE ONLINE SERVICES WHERE POSSIBLE
- USE ECONSULTATIONS FOR ROUTINE MATTERS THAT DO NOT NECESSARILY NEED A FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENT
ORDER YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS ON LINE - THIS WILL HELP KEEP THE PHONE LINES FREE FOR THE GPS TO CALL PATIENTS
IF YOU FEEL UNWELL PLEASE SEND A RELATIVE TO THE DISPENSARY TO COLLECT YOUR MEDICINE.
PLEASE TRY TO NOT TELEPHONE THE SURGERY ON A MORNING WHEN THE LINES ARE REALLY BUSY.

The UK Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, which is responsible for ensuring that medicines and medical devices work and are acceptably safe, have said that evidence DOES NOT suggest that the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab is linked to blood clots.
People should still go and get their COVID-19 vaccine when asked to do so.
