Noticeboard

COVID-19 Please do not come to the practice unless you have an appointment or have been requested to do so by a staff member or GP. If you are given an appointment, or asked to come into the practice, please ensure you wear a face covering.

Face covering exemptions - please go to https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own for information on face covering exemptions.  You may still be asked to wear one in the practice to reduce the risk to our staff and other patients.

Important information for patients about GP appointments.

To protect our patients, staff and local community we are changing the way patients access our services.  Patients with internet access please use the eConsult function below and we will be in contact with you by 6pm the following working day.  For more urgent queries please call the practice. You may have to wait a long time on the telephone. If you have an emergency you should still call 999.

Prescriptions. We are not taking prescription requests at the practice.  You can use your local pharmacy, or online access to make requests for current repeat prescriptions. Medications which have not been ordered routinely for some time will not be issued via your pharmacy and should be requested via eConsult so that they can be properly reviewed.  Just-in-case medications will only be issued in exceptional circumstances.

Disputes with employers. We cannot give opinions on whether or not is safe for employees to return to work - this is a matter for you and your employer.  The NHS do not provide occupational health services for employers.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

We have limited numbers of appointments available at this time owing to staff shortages - you may need to book your vaccines privately if we cannot find an appointment for you.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines may have to be ordered as they are not always stock vaccines. 

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
