COVID-19   -  

COVID-19 Testing - we refer symptomatic patients directly for COVID-19 testing. In order to streamline the process, we require our patients who think they need testing to complete a testing form. Please click on the link below for more information and to access the testing form. These forms are only processed by the practice during Surgery hours, Monday to Friday 9-5pm (4pm on Wed) .



 Please see the below summary of the important steps we have taken to ensure our practice and patients remain as safe as possible during the Coronavirus pandemic. We need your support and adherence to these changes if we are to remain open during the pandemic.
The practice doors are remaining closed and are only accessible by ringing the doorbell - do not arrive without calling ahead

General Information can be found at the Health Protection Surveillance Centre Website.
