We respectfully ask patients to switch off their mobile phones while attending the premises.

Dear Patients,

The UK has now moved to level 4 of Coronavirus risk as the ‘Omicron’ variant is sweeping the country. It is highly infectious with a current doubling of cases every 2-3 days. As a result the Secretary of State has told General Practice to go onto an urgent only footing and any time freed up used to support local vaccination arrangements.

We have  been challenged to try and vaccinate most adults by the New Year which is a mammoth task! In order to free up clinical staff to vaccinate  and protect you and our staff from infection we may have to cancel some of our routine appointments. If a patient services clerk calls you to cancel, please be kind and remember it is not their decision to cancel your appointment.

If you have an acute illness or problem please continue to use e-consult or phone to contact us and your problem will be triaged  and dealt with accordingly.
