To all our patients, We need your help. Please share this info if you can.

Similar to what the supermarkets are saying, we have capacity to help everyone who needs us most, but only if everybody uses our service wisely. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is placing unprecedented strain on the practice.

We are receiving several hundred more queries per day than normal in addition to managing with own staff absence. The answer to most of the queries we are getting can be found online and do not need medical advice. Please do not ask for sick notes. The government is urging employers and employees to have a flexible and common-sense approach to medical certification at this time. This will also help to reduce the pressure on GP services. Please, if you have a general enquiry about coronavirus, or need advice about whether you need to isolate your self or your family, please check the Government website or nhsinform for advice rather than contact us.

Only contact us if you are significantly worried about the symptoms you are suffering, mainly only if you are having difficulty breathing.

The main websites to use are:

We are working flat out to attend to all of those that do need our help.

Many thanks for your help and support throughout this difficult time.
