CORONAVIRUS:

If you have a fever OR a cough you MUST self isolate along with household members for 10 days. 

If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home please use the NHS 111 service. Further information on Coronavirus can be found by clicking here.  

Further patient information links can be found here. 

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

 

As a precautionary measure in relation to the pandemic we will now be conducting consultations via telephone. 

Please call reception to ask for a GP to call you back.  We envisage being able to resolve many problems in this manner, however, please be assured that if the GP needs to see you face to face, they will advise you of this on the call and book you an appointment appropriately. 

You will then be advised to wait in your car and a member of staff will call you into the building at your appointment time.  If your appointment is at Stamfordham branch you are advised to knock on the door and wait in the foyer. It is MANDATORY that you wear a mask at your appointment with our Doctors/Nurses.
