Thankfully we are not seeing as much illness due to Covid-19, we are however experiencing very high level of demand, in order to meet the demand,when you contact the practice requesting a GP appointment, this will startwith telephone consultation, if your condition requires a face to face consultation you will be invited to the surgery.
Please note in line with guidance,we mustrequest face coverings be worn when attending the surgery. Evidence shows this can reduce transmission of the virus so is an important step for protecting our staff and patients.
