Changes to Rapid Access Clinic & online appointments
The Practice is limiting direct access due to coronavirus to protect patients and staff. Online booking and RAC have been suspended, all appointments will be telephone triaged.
Patients who are required to attend the surgery for an appointment, we kindly ask that you do not enter the building until 5 minutes prior to your appointment time. Please do not bring anyone to the appointment with you unless you are attending with a child (only one parent can attend) or you are a Carer.
When attending the surgery you will be required to wear a face covering (scarf/bandana/face mask). This will help protect you, other patients in the waiting area, and staff. Face coverings can help stop the spread of coronavirus by preventing you from inadvertently passing on the disease to others if you have it but are not showing symptoms. By wearing a face covering, you’ll be helping us to make sure our GP practices remain safe places for people to receive care.
It’s important to remember that, it’s still so important to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds on a regular basis.
Information about wearing face coverings and how to make your own is available on the gov.uk website: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/how-to-wear-and-make-a-cloth-face-covering
