Surgery Regulations from 19th July 2021
COVID-19 has not gone away. Wearing a mask dramatically reduces cross-infection and will protect those still vulnerable including health and care staff.
Help us to help you by making sure you wear a mask with you when visiting GP services.
NOTE: NHS staff have a right to care for others without fear of abuse. Aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated. #ASBAwarenessWeek
Did you know you can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App?
Please do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
Countries will decide whether they require proof of Covid vaccination for entry, and it is the traveller’s responsibility to check individual requirements.
If needed, people in England who have both vaccine doses will be able to demonstrate their Covid vaccination status via the NHS App from 17 May. Those without access to the app can request a letter from the NHS proving their vaccination status by calling 119.

Friends and Family Test
The Department of health have been using the Friends and Family test in hospitals as a satisfaction measure for sometime. This year Doctor's Surgeries have been asked to collect and publish information from their own patients for the first time. Please click on the "take our patient survey" button below to complete this short survey.
We usually close one afternoon each month for in-house training. Please see notice board at the entrance of the building for further information.
