Coronavirus Information

If you have concerns that you may have been exposed to or become infected with the novel coronavirus you should phone NHS 111 and NOT attend the GP surgery or the hospital emergency department.

All travellers who develop relevant symptoms, however mild, within 14 days of returning from mainland China, should self-isolate at home immediately and call NHS 111.

All travellers from Wuhan and Hubei Province should self-isolate for 14 days, even if they do not have symptoms, due to the increased risk from that area.

Telephone Problems 

Apologies to our patients who are having difficulty in getting through to the Surgery.  We are receiving incoming calls spasmodically.  Please be assured the Surgery is open during our usual operational hours of 8am to 6:30pm.  This issue started on Monday 27 January.

This is  a nationwide problem which BT are aware of and are currently working to rectify.

Update 5/2/20 17:53 from our telephone provider

We’re pleased to report that the platform has been performing as expected since the patches were deployed last night and the fixes have worked as planned.

BT’s technical team will continue to monitor the platform closely over the coming days and do not expect to issue any further Service Alerts for this incident.

We are hopeful to have received a full fault report from BT by Thursday 13th February which we will make available to you.

Thanks again for your patience on this matter.
