Changes to GP appointments from Tuesday 17th March
Posted on 17 Mar 2020
Coronavirus-Changes to appointments.
Due to new guidance with regards to Coronavirus we have made the decision that the reception team will not be booking any appointments emergency or routine with a GP.
Instead the reception team will offer you a telephone triage appointment,
When the doctor has spoken to you if they feel you need to be seen in a face to face consultation they will arrange this for you.
If you have a routine face to face appointment with a GP booked please DO NOT ATTEND the surgery unless the doctor has spoken to you first.
At the moment the nurse and health care assistant appointments remain unchanged however please follow NHS guidelines and stay at home if you are suffering either:
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
- shortness of breath
Thank you so much for your cooperation and understanding at this time.
