Do not attend to see a GP until you have spoken to a GP

Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak all patients will need to speak to a GP first, before attending any GP appointment.


Nursing appointments will continue as usual for now.

If you feel you need to be seen please arrange a telephone appointment with your GP.

If you already have an appointment booked DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY.

You will receive a phone call on the day of your appointment. If it is clinically appropriate the doctor will then see you the same day.

This action is essential to maintain your health and the health of your community as advised by the Department of Health.

If your query is about Coronavirus go to or call 111

Travel Cancellations

The surgery is currently receiving a lot of requests for travel cancellation forms from people who want to cancel their trips due to the risk of contracting coronavirus.

Please find advice from the Foreign Office here regarding travelling to specific areas of the world. Depending on your specific travel insurance policy, most insurance companies will cover cancelled trips to countries to which the Foreign Office advice is not to travel to. No certificate from your GP is required.

In addition, please be advised that the surgery is unable to provide letters or certificates to travel insurance companies supporting requests for refunds by patients who, without any significant medical illness, cancel their travel plans.
