COVID-19 – FACE COVERINGS Please be aware that all patients who are asked to attend the surgery for a face to face appointment MUST ensure that they wear a face covering, scarf or mask. The surgery is unable to provide face coverings/masks for you due to the demands on the supply of PPE. Unfortunately without a face covering patients will not be permitted to enter the building.

Please contact the surgery for the pneumococcal vaccine if you have: Chronic heart disease, chronic respiratory problems, diabetes, chronic renal disease, chronic liver disease, asplenia or dysfunction of the spleen, cochlear implants, CSF shunts or for a child under 5 years with previous invasive pneumococcal disease. The vaccine will protect against serious and potential fatal pneumococcal infections.

From 15 October 2020 we no longer accept prescription requests over the phone or via the paper slips. Prescription requests, unless agreed otherwise, will be accepted by online ordering only. Please contact reception for details on how to order your prescriptions online, and thank you for your cooperation.
