Welcome to the Group Practice website

COVID-19 Concerns

If you have any concerns regarding Covid-19 please visit NHS Inform. If you have symptoms of Covid-19 please phone 111; do not attend the surgery.

We are still here for you

Our surgeries are open for you but you will find that it is now different to usual. Most consultations will be managed by telephone or video if at all possible. However, in some cases it will be necessary for you to attend in person. If this happens please be assured that we will ensure arrangements are in place to maintain your safety. Please do not attend either surgery unless you have good reason to do so, or if you have been asked to attend. If you need to speak to a GP or Practice Nurse please phone us and they will be in touch.

Masks, Hand Hygiene and Social Distancing

Wearing a face mask is not mandatory in GP practices but patients are strongly advised to wear face coverings when attending for appointments as it is not always possible to maintain a 2 metre distance from other people. By face coverings we do not mean a surgical or other medical grade mask but a covering of the mouth and nose that is made of cloth or other textiles and through which you can breathe, for example a scarf or religious head covering that covers the mouth and nose. We would ask that you wash your hands on arrival at The Group Practice and before approaching the reception desk. There is a hand-washing facility on your right as you enter the reception area.
