You will have noticed over the last few months numerous changes at both of the surgeries. We have been trying hard to look after our patients as safely as possible.
We are now offering routine telephone appointments. Although currently you cannot book to come down and see a doctor, we are asking you initially phone to speak to one of us. Sometimes, on discussion it will become evident that we need to see you and this will be organised. However, often a telephone call will be enough to resolve the problem. You can also phone and arrange video consultations.
We will continue to assess and change our systems to allow the best possible service we can offer.
Our next upcoming challenge is how we will offer the flu vaccinations in a safe way. We are awaiting information on who will be eligible and what vaccinations will be required. We will continue to keep the website updated with regards to this.
As always, if you develop a temperature above 37.8, a new or worsening cough or the symptom of loss, or change, in your taste or smell, no matter what you think the cause is, please arrange a COVID-19 test via the NHS website.
