Face coverings when using NHS services

All patients and visitors to NHS services must wear a face covering at all times.  This includes hospitals, community clinics and GP services.  Evidence has confirmed that face coverings can help reduce the risk of transmission if you are suffering from coronavirus, but not showing symptoms.  

The government has set out advice for people on how to make their own face coverings easily at home, using scarves or other textile items. These face coverings should cover the mouth and nose, whilst allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandanna that ties behind the head to give a snug fit. 

Please wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before putting on a face covering and after taking it off. Please avoid touching your face covering whilst wearing it to avoid transmission of the virus.  

If you attend an appointment without a face covering, you will be provided with a face mask in an emergency.

Flu Vaccines 2020

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier. Thank you for your patience and co-operation.


Due to the current coronavirus pandemic all patients will first be telephoned by a GP, and seen in the practice only if necessary. We ask you to bear with us as this is the case until advised otherwise. We now have new processes in place which changes the way patients contact us to book appointments and other for general reasons. We have now made it easier for our patients so they can contact us from wherever they are by accessing this current website and selecting and completing the relevant forms available to them, we have a YouTube video available which demonstrates how to do this. Please watch the video entirely as this shows exactly how to navigate around the various forms and features. To watch the video please click here.
