Welcome to Our Practice
Please do not order your medicines more than 7 days before they are due, otherwise your request will be rejected by the practice. This is to ensure medicines do not go out of stock and pharmacies are not overwhelmed with early requests. We are now accepting medication requests over the telephone until further notice.
Booking a routine GP appointmentIMPORTANT INFO – There will be no routine GP appointment release for the forseeable future, this is due to the corona outbreak and to manage the safety of our staff and patients. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Requests for certification of absence from the workplace relating to COVID-19 symptoms
The NHS have introduced a digital isolation note. Isolation notes provide patients with evidence for their employers that they have been advised to self-isolate due to coronavirus, either because they have symptoms or they live with someone who has symptoms, and so cannot work. As isolation notes can be obtained without contacting a doctor, this will reduce the pressure on GP surgeries and prevent people needing to leave their homes. The notes can be accessed through the NHS website and NHS 111 online. After answering a few questions, an isolation note will be emailed to the user. If they do not have an email address, they can have the note sent to a trusted family member or friend, or directly to their employer. The service can also be used to generate an isolation note on behalf of someone else.
Private medicals service ceased
Unfortunately, we have had to temporarily cease our private medical work following an update from NHS ENGLAND. This is to free up time for NHS work. It will be for the foreseeable future. Our medicals team will be in touch with all individuals affected by this. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Update re referrals during COVID-19
