Information for Housebound Patients for 2020 Flu Vaccinations





During the COVID pandemic all appointment requests are subject to telephone triage.


We are ONLY seeing patients in the surgery by pre-arranged telephone invitation/triage


It remains unlikely that there will be a return to routine face to face appointments, in the near future. If a clinician needs to examine you, you will be given a time to come down; there is social distancing marking, and an in and out door system in place. Please follow instructions, including the wearing of a face mask.


Please help the receptionists by telling them a short summary of your problem. The surgery is open continuously from 8.30am-6pm. If you require to speak to a doctor, the receptionist will take a note of your details and the doctor will return your call.


Thank you

Pregnancy Tests

If you believe you may be pregnant we are unable to perform pregnancy testing here in the practice as we are no longer supplied with the kits to do this by GG&C. 

We would ask that you purchase a pregnancy kit at any Pharmacy and carry out the test before you make an appointment with the GP or Practice Nurse.  Kits are available from as little as a few pounds and are just as accurate as more expensive tests.  Alternatively, if you are unable to fund a kit we can send a sample of urine to the lab for testing however results will not be available for 4-5 days.
