Do you still want us to open early mornings? ( posted on Jan 31, 2020 )

We currently open at 7am as previously our patients have told us they want to be seen by nurses and/or GPs before they start work in the morning.

 

Patients have said they can have their asthma, diabetes and other chronic disease reviews without taking annual leave from work.

 

The early opening also enables patients to pick up/drop off prescription requests before work.


It is important that our practice is still meeting the needs of the patients so... the big question is...

Did you know....?


The Government has now issued doctors with advice about the coronavirus.

China is a long way away but air travel brings it much closer - and in doing so the possibility of the coronavirus coming to the UK.


Many of the symptoms are those that act like a cough or cold and are unlikely to be of concern if you have not travelled - but please do not be surprised when our team members ask about your travel history to rule this serious and highly contagious illness out!


Please be patient with the extra questions we need to ask - never has it been more important to tell us about your symptoms and the GPs need our receptionists to obtain this information to reduce the risk!

 

DO NOT ATTEND THE PRACTICE


IN PERSON IF YOU THINK YOU


MAY HAVE THIS VIRUS
