We are here for you

The GPs, Staff, Community Services, Pharmacies, UTC, Social Services, District Council, CCG together with NHS England have been working together to co-ordinate our resources.

We are missing having our doors open, seeing new and familiar faces in our buildings and waiting rooms. However, for patient and staff safety our doors need to remain closed, allowing in only those who have pre-booked appointments or who have been asked by a clinician to collect items from the surgery. Please do not let this discourage you from contacting us however.

We have detailed changes to our working practices in the follow pages. We ask that you take time to read this information so that we can all work together to ensure that we protect the health and safety of our patients, staff and the wider community.
