Access & Parking

The surgery is accessible to wheelchair users and has disabled parking bays close to the building with a ramp to the front door. Patients unable to open the front door should use the bell to request assistance from a member of staff. The patient toilet is fully equipped for the needs of disabled users.

There is a convenient public car park just a short distance from the surgery in Lower Lane. Patients are asked not to park on the surgery forecourt as this may cause an obstruction to vehicles required for a medical emergency.

Surgery Update 17th June 2022

eConsult Update – 

(Online Access for Administrative Tasks Only)

This is a service introduced by NHS England over the pandemic that has allowed patients to contact primary care via an online form. It is now a contractual obligation for all practices to provide eConsultations in some format. You may have noticed that we recently suspended the service due to the partners feeling that it was clinically unacceptable in terms of risk and safety – the risk that a patient may have an urgent medical problem, contacted us by eConsult and for that not to be looked at for a number of days due to the excessive demand from other avenues within the GP’s working day. The partners have therefore made the decision that from the 4th July 2022 this service can now only be used for administrative tasks. 

 

  • Request for Fit Notes / Medical Certificate
  • Secretarial Queries
  • Online Service Queries / Requests
  • When instructed to use the service by one of the clinical team

 

*Please note that any requests using the eConsult service for appointments, medical advice or clinical problems will be rejected and you will be asked to telephone the surgery to book an appointment instead*

 

Mask Wearing

The NHS has requested that staff and patients continue to wear masks at all times when in the surgery.

Throughout the pandemic we have done our best to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff and we will continue to do so moving forward.

Therefore we are asking you to wear a face mask when visiting the surgery to help keep you, our other patients and staff safe. Thank you for your cooperation.
