Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update
Due to national public advice on social isolation we are changing our appointments to minimise risk of contact in the community.
We need to limit the spread of the Corona virus in our community to protect our vulnerable. We have to cancel all booked face to face appointments, effective immediately. We WILL run urgent and necessary appointments only. If you have an appointment you will be contacted by our team. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have been instructed to. We will be running a telephone service but please be patient as we are experiencing very high demand at the moment. Many Thanks.
Letters for High Risk Patients group 4 - update
As you may be aware the government have sent over a million letters to patients advising them that they are in an ‘at risk’ group and should isolate for the next 12 weeks.
These letters were produced using hospital data and not data from GP Practices. As a result the government announced that the GP practices will be writing to additional patients by the beginning of this week.
As you may have noticed, there has been a delay in this process centrally by NHS England / NHS Digital. We have been informed that the additional letters are being produced this week.
We understand and share your frustrations regarding the delay in this process and politely ask you to respect our staff whilst we wait for this situation to be resolved. To clarify, it is completely out of our control and we are dependent on NHS England / NHS Digital informing us (and other GP practices across the country) once these additional patients have been identified.
Once the additional patents have been identified and the letters sent, we will let you know. Thank you again for your patience.
