The COVID-19 Emergency has made General Practice review the way we work.
Be reassured that we are still open to provide services for you but the ways that you connect with us have changed
Now that we are at Alert Level 1, we have opened up more in-person appointments but we are still offering phone consultations as we have found these have been well received by many people and also help us to work more efficiently. We can also offer video consultations for those who wish to try this.
You can book routine appointments with our nurses for cervical smears, immunisations and other injections, dressings, health advice and other services.
When you arrive at the Medical Centre, we will still be asking you questions about respiratory illness and COVID contact – PLEASE BE HONEST with us about this – we do this to keep our staff and our community safe.
If you do have a respiratory illness, we will still see you, but we are managing these consultations in a different way. You will be placed on a call list, a doctor will call you back to check on your symptoms and then arrange for you to come to the clinic in the afternoon for an assessment and COVID swab (if required).
We have a lot of work to catch up on that was deferred during the lock down period – we are trying to clear this as quickly as possible – please be patient with us. In particular we currently have a long list of people needing Driver’s Licence Medicals – we are looking at ways to clear this quickly.
Remember, we are still here for you, but CALL US FIRST.
