Noticeboard

Coronavirus Update 17/3/2020 - Non essential appointments are being cancelled or changed to telephone or video appointments.  No face to face appointments are available unless they have been authorised by a doctor or nurse.   


If you have a high temperature or a new continuous cough you should stay at home for 14 days. DO NOT GO  to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you're staying at home. Read the advice about staying at home and Home Isolation Advice


Use the 111 coronavirus service if you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse, your symptoms do not get better after 7 days. For more general information see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public

DNAs

Over 100 appointments per month are ‘Did Not Attend’ (DNA), i.e. the patient does not turn up for the appointment and does not contact the surgery in advance to cancel/change appointment. The affect of these are:

  • An increase in the waiting time for appointments
  • Frustration for both staff and patients
  • A waste of resources
  • A potential risk to the health of the patient

 

 

If you cannot attend your appointments for any reason please let us know as soon as possible, giving at least 24 hours notice. We can then offer the appointment to someone else.

If you repeatedly fail to attend appointments you may be removed from this practice list and may be required to find an alternative doctor.
