Coronovirus / Covid-19 Information - updated 15.07.2020
We have installed screens and social distancing measures in all our sites to protect our staff and patients but you should only attend the surgery to collect medication or when a clinician has asked you to attend for a face to face appointment.
Please do not make appointments or enquiries at the reception desk when this could be done by telephone.
If you are attending the Surgery for any reason you MUST wear a face covering.
Clinicians will not be able to consult with patients who are not wearing a face covering.
Our dispensaries are experiencing exceptional demand.
Please only order the medication you need and do not order earlier than normal. We have been asked to enforce 28 day prescribing and will not be able to issue more than one months supply.
Please allow a minimum of 4 working days for us to dispense your medication.
Volunteers are available in many villages to help collect prescriptions if you are self isolating.
Please do not ask us to provide a sick note if you are self isolating
Employees in self-isolation need to follow their workplace’s usual sickness reporting process.
Employees can 'self-certify' for the first 7 days off work. This means following their workplace process but not having to get a note from a doctor or NHS 111.
Those self-isolating due to coronavirus for more than 7 days can get an online self-isolation note from the NHS website;
Or print the form below, complete and give to your employer

Please do not ask us to provide a letter about exemption from wearing a face covering. This is not a requirement and is a waste of clinical resources.
If you wish to carry a card there are DIY versions available as below;
