Changes to the way we are working
The surgery has changed the way it is working in line with Government guidelines and has been actively reducing the footfall upon the surgery to reduce the risk of patients and our staff contracting the virus. To ensure that we continue in this manner and comply with guidance, we will actively encourage patients to;
1. Create an engage consult account (see link further below with instructions).
2. Use engage consult to request an appointment, prescription, submit requests or queries, however' please avoid ringing during 8am - 10am and 1:00pm and 2:00pm
3. Nominate your pharmacy online, - this will allow your prescription to be electronically dispatched. It will also prevent you calling into the surgery to collect them.
4. If you have an urgent query then please call the surgery, alternatively you can submit this request via engage consult. (please allow up to 48hrs for a response, however, there will be periods where we are able to respond quicker). If you need an appointment, the surgery staff will triage your query over the phone, this is to ensure that you are directed to the correct GP, Nurse Practitioner or Clinical staff member.
Staff will continue to triage all queries to ensure that patients receive the correct care, whether this is a telephone consultation, video call, or F2F appointment. Please ensure that your mobile phones are to hand, as no time slot can be given for a return call from the clinical team.
If your invited in for a F2F consultation the following rules apply upon arrival:
Patients are asked to wear a facemask
Patients will be asked to use the hand sanitisers on the walls, these electronical dispense solution.
Please take a seat and await to be called. A clinician will take your temperature before you come through into the surgery.
THE SURGERY IS OPEN FOR CALLS ONLY. HOWEVER' THE LINES ARE EXTREMLEY BUSY AND I ASK THAT ALL PATIENTS BE EXTREMLEY PATIENT WITH THE STAFF DURING THESE DIFFICULT TIMES. YOUR CALL AND QUERY WILL BE ANSWERED, WHEN A CARE NAVIGATOR BECOME AVAILABLE.
Patients who suspect they have coronavirus, MUST NOT COME TO THE SURGERY!, call NHS 111 from home, book a test, ensure you and the household isolate - follow the rules for test and trace.
Please bare with the staff, whilst we continually navigate through these unprecedented times and continuously changing situations, we are constantly up dating the way we work inline with guidance and direction from NHS England and the Government.

Seasonal FLU immunisations
The surgery is working extremely hard with NHS England, the CCG and the GP federation to ensure that we offer the Flu vaccine to all those patients eligible in a safe and controlled environment. The surgery is not able to offer clinical slots daily for routine flu vaccinations, but we are contacting all eligible patients and offering them a specific date. Please wait for the surgery staff to contact you, if you are in the groups below.
Those patients aged of 65 or over
Patients in the 18-64 with long term health conditions such as (COPD, Heart disease, Asthma etc)
Children aged 6 months to 17 years with a long term health condition
Children aged 2 - 3 on 31 Aug 2020 who are well
Children who attend schools will be offered a flu vaccine whilst in school, the surgery will not be able to vaccinate any children without a long term health condition.
If you child has a long term health condition and is offered the flu vaccine at school, it may prevent the need to attend surgery.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
