The practice under the Covid protection framework: Making an appointment now that we are at Orange

We strive to offer the best level of care that we can whilst also protecting you and us from possible exposure to Covid.

We kindly request that you continue to phone us to book an appointment.

If you have cold or flu-like symptoms you will be assessed virtually by our clinical team to determine how best to support you. If it is deemed necessary, then you will be seen in person by the doctor covering our respiratory patients on the day.

We continue to encourage phone and video consultations wherever possible.

If you have a booked in-person appointment, you will be greeted at the front door at your appointment time. If the waiting room is full you may be asked to wait in your car. We are using this measure to ensure that we can maintain social distancing in our practice.

On entering our practice building:
  • All patients over 12 years of age are required to wear a mask
  • You must scan the QR code to record your visit or complete a manual entry
  • We ask that you sanitise your hands at our entrance

Repeat prescriptions: all repeat prescriptions will be sent to your nominated pharmacy, prescriptions will not be available to be picked up from our practice

Covid testing: we are continuing to offer Covid testing for as many people as we can. Please phone us first if you wish to have a Covid swab. Symptoms to be concerned about are: cough, cold, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, fevers. You will be given instructions and a time to attend for your test. Please remain in your car at all times. 

Covid test results: you will be texted your result when we get it, test results can take up to 3 days to return from the laboratory and we are checking results seven days a week. Our phone lines continue to be very busy and we therefore kindly ask that you do not phone us for your results.
