The COVID-19 Emergency has changed the way we work in General Practice. Alongside this we are also facing increasing workforce issues, over the last year we have seen several of our GPs leave for various reasons and we continue to struggle to recruit replacements.

With limited GP appointments, please consider whether a nurse can provide the care you need, our nursing team have a wide range of skills and knowledge to support you.

Our team of health care assistants are also increasing their skills to support our nurses and doctors, so they may be the first contact you have with our team. Please be patient with us as we modify and adapt our processes to enable you to continue to access the services you need while our workforce remains stretched.

The Pharmacy in the Medical Centre remains closed but you can still access the Pharmacy in town and we will be working together to ensure you can still get your medications.

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 still managing these consultations in a different way. We will usually get you to see a nurse first and try to minimise your time in the waiting room,

We still recommend you wear a mask and keep your distance from others in the waiting areas.
