Covid Testing is now available to anybody with any symptoms of a cold – temperature, sore throat, cough or any other symptoms which concern you. Please ring as usual for an appointment and one of the doctors will make an assessment over the phone. You will then be asked to attend our drive through clinic at either site between the hours of 2:00 pm and 2:30 pm. If you have an afternoon telephone appointment, you will be asked to come in to the clinic the next day, unless it is urgent.
Latest News Re Covid-19 Arrangements
From Tuesday 24th March we will be conducting phone or video consults for everyone who wishes to attend the surgery. For the simple things this may be all you need, and we will arrange to get your prescriptions, blood forms etc to the relevant places. For more complex needs we may ask you to come in to be assessed. On making an appointment you will be given an appointment time, and asked if you have the ability to take a video call on your phone. If you access the internet on your phone, then we can send you a text message with a link in it, to then connect with us. If you do not have this ability, we will ring you and do a phone consult. PLEASE BE NEAR YOUR PHONE AT YOUR APPOINTMENT TIME AS WE WILL NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO WAIT FOR YOU INDEFINITELY.
Above all, keep calm and keep in touch with us as above. It is an anxious time, but we have the advantage of being smaller caring communities which have a proud history of looking out for each other, which puts us in a great position to get through this.
