 General announcement 

Contrary to some press and internet stories, most GP Surgeries have never stopped seeing patients.  From day 1 we continued to see patients in the surgery for assessment, review and treatments if face to face appointment was indicated.  We have transformed the way we work to enable more patients than ever to be helped by rapidly replacing carpets with vinyl to allow more rooms to be opened to face to face appointment.  We offer telephone, video, email consultations and yes we still do home visits.  Front door triage ensures all patients having to attend are a safe and distanced as possible and leave by other doors to the front to avoid crossing paths.  We clean down after EVERY patient.   At no time since the start of this pandemic has anyone been away from surgery duty unless annual leave, or shielding and this is a testament to the dedication of amazing team from Patient Administration dealing with over a thousand calls a week; our Nursing Team working tirelessly seeing their regular patients for dressings, injections, blood tests and urgent patching up;  to Doctors who have had to adapt overnight to using technology to continue to see patients in a different way and using their skills and knowledge to try to best help those in clinical need.  With the measures we have had to put in place we have managed to avoid bringing Covid-19 into the surgery and been able to maintain and expand our services to our patients.   Whilst Covid-19 is still a threat we will continue to telephone triage patient facing appointments.  We are still working on reduced waiting room numbers and try to never have more than 6 people in the waiting room at any time.

ALL patients attending the Surgery for their pre-booked appointment will be asked to wear a face covering or mask in line with the latest advice and because we know that others in the waiting room could be at risk or ill.  A mask is a simple precaution to keep yourself, other patients and all our staff safe and well.
