In recent months we have seen a rise in the numbers of patients attending and being admitted to our hospitals with Covid.

As part of the national policy of living with Covid, and in line with recent NHS guidelines, from October 2022, the requirement to wear a masks on practice premises is reinstated.

This also applies more widely to the NHS in all clinic, ward and outpatient areas where mask wearing has been re-instated. Visitors will be instructed to wear a mask on entry to a ward or clinic.

Please do not come to the surgery if you have covid-19 symptoms.  Please click the button below for further information about what to do if you have or might have COVID-19.


Most patients with lasting symptoms after Covid-19  will be managed by their GP. If symptoms have not improved after 12 weeks, patients may be referred to a new service.  The Long Covid Triage and Assessment Service  brings a range of health professionals together to ensure  that patients with more complex rehabilitation needs are referred to the correct clinical support pathway. Your GP will be able to refer you to this service. For more details, download the leaflet below:
