We would like to notify you that although lockdown rules are easing, we still aren’t working at full capacity – and we won’t be for a while. This is in order to protect all of our patients and our staff.
There are still rules around what we are and aren’t allowed to do, and we need to operate in a way which ensures everyone’s safety.
The measures we have put in place include:
- Reducing the capacity of our building
- Ensuring that our staff have time to clean between patients
- Asking everyone to wear a face covering inside the Health Centre
- Implementing a total triage model – you will speak to a clinician on the phone before getting an appointment
- Screening on the door of the Health Centre
- Offering a reduced number of face to face appointments and an increased number of telephone appointments
- Implementing eConsult so that you can submit your symptoms & requests electronically (via our website)
The current way that we are working takes a lot of time, and we may not be able to do things in the same way as you had come to expect prior to COVID-19. We therefore ask that you kindly be patient with us.
Please be aware that if you are attending the surgery, you will need to wear a face mask/face covering.

Please be alert to this scam.
