Appointments

Please continue to attend appointments as advised. You don’t need to call to check that a booked appointment is going ahead. We will be in touch if anything changes with your care.

Although we’re delivering services a little differently at the moment, appointments are still available and services are running as usual. You might find that you have an appointment over the telephone, video call or online (known as an eConsult) and this might be with someone different than you normally see.

If you need medical help, please use the eConsult service available here or call us on 01228 588121.

  • We require all who are attending the surgery for an appointment to wear a face mask/face covering.
  • Arrive at the practice for your appointment on time, this will limit yourself and others waiting outside unnecessarily.
  • Please only attend the surgery if you have been invited down, this is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
  • Maintain 2m social distancing when in surgery.
