Please be aware that due to the increased demand for consultations our GPs may not phone you back on the same day. If your matter is urgent please let our receptionists know.

Masks, Social Distancing and Chaperones

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.

If you are bringing a chaperone to your appointment they will also be required to wear a mask during your consultation.

Why is the receptionist asking so many questions?

Our receptionists may ask you what your appointment is for. Please don’t be offended by this. They are simply asking so they can ensure you are seen by the most suitable member of our Clinical Team.

If you have an issue you would rather not discuss with the receptionist you can send the GP or nurse an eConsult form by clicking here.
