From mid April – . We are making bookings to give funded vaccines to our over 65 years of age patients. Please phone the surgery to make a nurse booking. The number of patients in the surgery at one time will be limited.
- You will only be able to book Phone consults through our online booking system – Connectmed for the time being. When you phone the surgery we will triage and screen all our appointments for the Doctors and Nurses. We are trying to reduce the face to face doctor appointments by 70%, this means that our doctor may do a telephone consultation with you if this is appropriate to do so.
- We would appreciate your support and patience with our overloaded staff at this time. If you think you may have Covid19 or have been in contact with a confirmed case, or been at a location of interest we ask that you phone the COVID Healthline 0800 358 5453 for advice. The nearest local testing centre is at Northcote Community Centre, College Road, Northcote.
We no longer email lab test results or reports. Please use the online portal (under Health Records) to see test results or we can print them off for you to collect from reception. Contact us to arrange portal registration for you if you don’t have already have access to online bookings and prescription ordering.
