General practice is open...
Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, primary care has changed. We can do more remotely, but we are still open and we are still seeing patients face-to-face in the practice.
We are seeing patients face-to-face!
If a face-to-face appointment is needed you will still be seen in person by a GP.
Telephone appointments are not suitable for everyone and if you need a physical examination or blood test, for example, we will ask you to come in.
You can also choose a face-to-face appointment, as long as you aren't isolating and don't have covid symptoms.
If you feel unwell or have any worrying symptoms, such as potential signs of cancer, you should seek medical assistance
GP practices are open and here to help but to keep you safe, some appointments are carried out remotely and it is best to call us rather than walking in.
In an emergency, for example if you think you might be having a heart attack or stroke, call 999.
If you have Coronavirus symptoms you should stay at home for at least 10 days
from when your symptoms started and call NHS 111 if your symptoms worsen. You should arrange to take a test by visiting www.nhs.uk or by calling 119 but, do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
