CORONAVIRUS UPDATE  

Please see our latest patient update - Patient update 17-03-2020

The Practice is following NHS best practice guidelines and is currently only operating a telephone triage service to help reduce the risk and spread of the coronavirus infection.

It has been advised that all practices should:

- Suspended  all 'routine' GP appointments whilst surgeries concentrate on urgent care for the most unwell.

- Move from face-to-face appointments to telephone and virtual appointments. Our new e-Consult service will support this process.

- Practices will move to a system where ALL patients will need to speak to a medical professional to determine the need for an appointment.

Patients are being urged to bear with us and our team during this period of high demand and uncertainty and follow updates on the practice website, Facebook page and SMS message.

Patients can find regularly updated information via the NHS website

- If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms please go to 111 online DO NOT ATTEND YOUR GP SURGERY

- Please follow the new NHS advice to self-isolate at home for 7 days if you have:  a fever AND / OR  a new persistent cough

- if your symptoms are manageable at home and you would not ordinarily require medical attention please do not call 111 unless your condition deteriorates.

- At this point in time GPs CANNOT test for the coronavirus which causes COVID-19

 Thank you for your continued support and understanding

Named GP for Patients aged 75 or over

As part of our commitment to more personalised care for more patients with long term conditions, from April 2014 all patients aged 75 and over will have a named, accountable GP. 

The named GP will take lead responsibility for ensuring that any services, which may be required, are delivered to each patient appropriately.  The named GP will work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a care package that meets the needs of the patient.

New patients aged 75 and over will be allocated a named GP on registering with the practice.  Wherever possible we will try our utmost to accommodate those patients who express a preference for a particular GP to be their named GP, however, this may not always be possible. We would like to make it very apparent that this does not mean patients will have to see that GP when they come to surgery as appointments will not always be possible.
