Please note we experience a high volume of calls on a Monday, leading to all of our appointments being filled. We do ask that for non-urgent issues you speak to our team mid-week to speak to a clinician. Your local pharmacy can offer interim advice & products for issues such as cough, cold, headaches and oral thrush.
With the rise of the Omicron Covid-19 Variant, patients are urged to ensure they are up to date with their vaccinations to prevent severe infection. Please contact the surgery if you require further information.
Patients will be called for their Covid-19 Boosters and Flu Vaccines as appointments become available for their age group. If you have not had either a Covid-19 Booster or a Flu vaccine, please contact the surgery.
Act FAST if you or a loved one have symptoms of stroke
The NHS is urging anyone who thinks they or a loved one have symptoms of stroke not be put off seeking help because of coronavirus but to ‘act FAST’.
NHS staff have worked hard to ensure anyone who needs stroke care can safely get it despite the biggest public health emergency in over a century.
Now there are concerns that people are putting off getting help when they need it due to coronavirus worries.
As part of the Help Us Help You campaign the NHS is urging the public to continue to act F.A.S.T. and dial 999 when stroke strikes.
Services across the country have been restructured to reduce the risk of patients being exposed to, or passing on infection in hospital.
The F.A.S.T. (Face, Arms, Speech, Time) acronym is a simple test to help people identify the most common signs of a stroke, and emphasises the importance of acting quickly by calling 999
- Face – has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile?
- Arms – can they raise both arms and keep them there?
- Speech – is their speech slurred?
- Time to call 999
