Surgery News and Update March 2022

There have been a lot of questions around why we are still working differently.

The pandemic is not over!

We worked hard to provide a service throughout the lockdowns and continue to do so. To protect everyone we must maintain safe infection control and minimise unnecessary physical contact. Most appointments with the Doctors are being triaged. This helps to keep you safe. We will see everyone in person who needs to be seen that way.

Our reception staff are a vital part of our health care team and ask questions to direct you to the best support. They are skilled in assisting with triaging of appointments and work to strict codes of patient confidentiality.

We are pleased to be able to include a range of professionals at the surgery including our Practice Nurses, Paramedics, Pharmacist, Physiotherapists and Social Prescriber who can diagnose and treat health conditions or sign post you to the correct service. This ensures that you see the right person more quickly rather than needing to see a Doctor.

Please be patient, we are under enormous pressure and have seen a rise of 30% in the demand for our service. Please continue to be kind to our staff, socially distance where possible and you must wear a face mask when attending a healthcare setting.

New Clinical Staff

We are pleased to announce that we have a new Paramedic joining us on 1.4.2022 and Dr Elizabeth Small will be joining our team as a GP Partner at the end of April


We have signed up to administer the Spring Booster to our patients who are aged 75 and over and all patients in the extremely clinical vulnerable group. We have not had confirmation of our delivery yet. Once we do we will set up clinics and we will invite you to attend. (Most of the clinics will be on a Saturday morning at the surgery) PLEASE DO NOT PHONE US. You can also book at HUB or attend a walk-in clinic from 21.3.2021.

For the 5- 11 year olds you will need to book at a HUB. We cannot do the vaccines for this age group at the surgery, and will NOT have the vaccine in the surgery.
