Coronavirus Contingency Plan

With effect from Monday 23/03/20 our branch at Church Lane will be closed to public access. Our other sites are open and can be accessed via telephone on the usual number 01234 351341.

From Monday 23/03/20 we will be moving to a same day telephone first service. If you require urgent advice please telephone the usual number 01234 351341. This will enable us to deal with the most urgent cases.

We are experiencing an unprecedented demand for repeat prescriptions. Please allow at least 3 working days for these to be processed. In order to reduce the footfall within branches, and therefore reduce the spread of the virus, we are asking patients who do not receive their medication from our practice dispensaries to nominate a pharmacy to whom we can send the prescriptions electronically.

Med 3 (Fit to Work Note) for patients who have been advised to self-isolate. These patients will be able to download an Isolation Note from the NHS 111 online site. If you need a Med 3 (Fit to Work Note) for any other reason please make your request via the website. Please supply your email address as this will enable the practice to upload paperwork to you.

The impact of Coronavirus is forcing many people to self-isolate. The practice would like to direct patients to the following site which helps connect people in affected communities to support one another with essential tasks like food shopping or collecting medicines: https://localhelpers.org/
