There is a national shortage of blood bottles, which is expected to last until at least 17th September 2021. This is affecting every healthcare service provider. We have therefore been told by the NHS to postpone all non-urgent blood results.
Although national restrictions on face masks and social distancing are being relaxed on 19th July, we are still requesting all patients to wear a face mask and socially distance when they attend the practice. This will remain in place until further notice.
Due to the nature of our work, we often have vulnerable patients on site and have a duty to protect them as well as our staff.
Staff will also continue to wear face masks and other PPE for their own protection and yours.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Due to coronavirus, please help protect other patients and our staff by using our online service called eConsult, available 24/7, via the banners above. eConsult is a service for patients wanting to contact one of our GPs and you will get a response within one working day. You can also use this service for Administrative requests such as to discuss recent tests or ask for a sick note.
If you can, use eConsult instead of phoning as our lines are incredibly busy. Please do not use this service for prescription requests, you may however use the service in order to ask us to register you online to order your repeat prescriptions.
