With regard to recent changes to the “shielding” or Clinically Extremely Vulnerable group of patients, advice is currently to work from home, or if this is not possible, to stay off work. If you are in this group you should receive a letter from the government directly from the week beginning 2nd November. This letter is all you need for your employer – you do NOT need a sick note or a letter from the surgery. Please see this weblink for more advice.
When using AskmyGP please be aware that if you send in a request a clinician may want to call you so please have your telephone to hand at all times. If your phone blocks unknown/withheld numbers then please let us know in your query. The clinician will attempt to call you 3 times and if they cannot reach you they will need to close the query. If for any reason you have not been contacted within 48 hours please let us know.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
