We are putting measures in place to ensure the safety of all our patients and staff and thank you for your continued patience and co-operation.
Unless you have been given an appointment or are collecting your medication, please DO NOT enter the surgery. 
Please do not come into the surgery if you are presenting with cold/cough symptoms even if you have not been in another country.  If you are concerned please contact the surgery for a telephone appointment.
Please click on the online Coronavirus service link directly below and complete the online questionnaire if you are attending the surgery.

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back 
(you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, 
or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
Use the 111 coronavirus service - only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
How long to stay at home
if you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for 7 days
if you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the 
day the first person in the home started having symptoms
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible
