COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

Patients with  symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, high temperature and loss of taste or smell), should dial 111 to access the COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Service (CCAS). 

This service will determine if the patient requires further attention in primary care. It will triage a patient and where appropriate, book a patient in to a practice directly. To access this service please call 111.

Do not attend the surgery if you have symptoms of Covid-19.

MINOR AILMENTS

A minor ailments scheme operates at some local pharmacies. If you do not pay for your prescriptions you can still be seen by a participating pharmacy rather than having to attend the GP surgery. Please ask at reception or your local pharmacy for details of the ailments covered.

BOOK BY PHONE

Our phone lines are open at 8am. This is usually a busy time so we recommend ringing later in the morning for non-urgent requests and queries. If requesting an appointment, please be prepared to give our team as much information as possible to help us understand your requirements.

Face to face appointments are normally arranged after a telephone assessment has been completed. You may be asked to complete an eConsult request in certain circumstances.

In addition to our GPs, we have access to a wide range of healthcare professionals and services which may provide the most appropriate response for your needs. 

Urgent cases will be seen as a priority and less urgent cases can be booked ahead.

Our Advanced Nurse Practitioners are able to deal with many routine adult cases and can issue prescriptions or refer top other health professionals.

VIDEO CONSULTATION

Video consultations mean that patients can have an appointment by a completely secure video link from the comfort of their own home. 

To access the video consultation, please contact the practice. The service can be accessed once a remote clinical triage has been conducted.

CHAPERONE

If you believe that you would require the presence of a chaperone during an examination or consultation by one of our clinicians, please ask our receptionist at the time of booking your appointment. (You may, if necessary, make such a request in the course of a consultation.)

Our clinicians may also request the presence of a chaperone if they believe the circumstances warrant it. 

FACE TO FACE CONSULTATIONS

Face to face appointments may be arranged following prior triage by a GP.
Please contact the surgery reception by telephone. Do not come to the surgery if you have covid-19 symptoms. When calling the practice, please be prepared to give details to our team so that we can arrange for the most appropriate service to meet your needs.

HOME VISITS

Most medical problems can be dealt with at the surgery, and patients are generally encouraged to attend the practice for a consultation with their doctor, if at all possible.

However, we fully understand that some conditions or circumstances make surgery attendance impossible. In such cases we would ask that you phone the surgery before 10am.

TRANSLATION SERVICES

Telephone and notepad

The move to remote consultation and use of PPE in face-to-face consultations requires additional considerations. For example, the impact of PPE on lip reading.

The GOV.UK website provides advice for the public and is translated into multiple languages. The Doctors of the World has translated relevant NHS guidance into 60 languages. Communication tips and BSL interpreters are available for supporting people with hearing loss to access general practice services

Prolonged illness and/severe symptoms should not be attributed to COVID-19 and should be evaluated as usual. The threshold for face-to-face assessment in general practice and for secondary care should not change during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Community Consultation Service

Your pharmacy team can help you with your minor health concerns. Since starting in October 2019, the NHS Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS) has supported thousands of patients referred from NHS111 with medicine needs and management of minor health conditions.

The service has now been extended to include referrals from General Practice for minor illnesses and conditions such as constipation, cough, sore throat and joint pain*. This means that a pharmacy may be able to support you just as effectively upon referral from your GP practice

effectively with a trained professional
• Usually allows you to be seen the same day or at a time to suit you
• Enables you to be seen by the most appropriate health care professional at the right time
• Allows information captured during the consultation to be shared with the practice
