Advice re suspected case of Coronavirus (COVID 19)
Please do not come to the surgery if you have any symptoms.
Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
The NHS in England and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
The latest information on symptoms of Coronovirus infection and areas where recent travel may have resulted in a high risk of exposure can be found on nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Use this service if:
- you think you might have coronavirus;
- you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.
Appointment system changes:
- To mitigate risks and protect both patients and health workers, all online appointments are now available as telephone appointments. If deemed clinically necessary you will be seen face to face after initial telephone triage has taken place.
- We will screen all visitors to the building- if you have any symptoms of flu (a new or persistent cough or fever) we will arrange a telephone call for you. If you have hearing difficulties or are deaf, please let us know and will agree the best course of action to manage your request.

General advice for public
What's happening with you?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new, Europe-wide law which comes into effect on 25th May 2018. It will be replacing the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK. The GDPR is an opportunity for every organisation to give individuals (in our case patients) more control and rights over their personal data. The aim is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world. A leaflet will be available to explain this in more detail in due course.
You can download the Patient Leaflet here: GDPR Patient Leaflet
Change in opting out of national electronic data sharing
If you have ever opted out of sharing your record for research or planning purposes there has been a recent change. The surgery is no-longer able to do it on your behalf.
Visit www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters to find out how to continue your opt out or call 0300 3035678 for more details.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription.
