Repeat prescription requests - changes from 31 March 2020


A reminder that from the 31 March, you will no longer be able to collect your prescriptions from the practice. All patients will need to nominate a pharmacy to collect their prescriptions. Any requests we receive without a nominated pharmacy will be automatically sent to the either Boots Yorktown Road or McParlands at Owlsmoor (dependent on which site you are registered at)


Booked GP appointments update - 16.03.2020


Due to the Coronavirus all booked GP appointments will now be done over the telephone. Do not come into the surgery and expect a call at the allotted time. Nurse appointments will remain unchanged, unless you recieve a text/call saying otherwise. Please visit https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ for further advice before visiting the surgery. Thank you for your co-operation under the current circumstances.


Patient Access Appointments - Update 09.03.2020


As a precautionary measure, we have been advised by NHS England with immediate effect to remove all patient accessible appointments which are bookable online. However, we have added the facility to book telephone appointments through patient access as an alternative.


For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.  These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19


NHS England are  recommending that all travellers who develop cough, fever, shortness of breath within 14 days of returning from  China,Thailand, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Italy or Macau or have come into contact with someone,  should self-isolate at home immediately and contact above website or  call NHS 111


PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO SURGERY - DO NOT GO TO A&E
