Noticeboard

PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU HAVE AN URGENT NEED TO SEE A GP YOU CAN NOW BE OFFERED A FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENT WITH A GP. WE ARE STILL OFFERING TELEPHONE APPOINTMENTS FOR THE MORE GENERAL HEALTH PROBLEMS AS THEY ARE IDEALLY SUITED TO A PHONE CALL AND WILL SAVE YOU COMING INTO THE SURGERY.  IF YOU NEED TO BE SEEN HOWEVER, IT IS SAFE TO COME INTO THE SURGERY, ASSUMING YOU DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE ANY COVID SYMPTOMS OF A PERSISTENT DRY COUGH OR A HIGH TEMPERATURE.  OUR SURGERY REMAINS A "COLD HUB" AND WE ARE NOT SEEING ANYONE HERE WITH COVID SYMPTOMS SO PLEASE DO NOT DELAY TREATMENT FOR ANY URGENT MEDICAL NEEDS. 

We want to hear about your experiences of local healthcare services. What works well? What could be improved? What ideas do you have? Click here to give us your feedback

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

 

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
