Face coverings when attending
From 15th June we request that all patients attending the surgery for an appointment wear an appropriate face covering. If you do not have a face mask then a scarf or similar will suffice.
Please be aware we do not have enough masks at the surgery to be able to supply you with one. If you do not have a face covering you may be asked to return home to get one and could need to rebook your appointment.
PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY UNLESS IT IS ESSENTIAL.
IF YOU ARE A DISPENSING PATIENT AND CONSIDERED TO BE AT RISK EITHER DUE TO AGE OR MEDICAL CONDITION AND ARE CONCERNED ABOUT BEING ABLE TO COLLECT YOUR MEDICATION THEN PLEASE CALL DISPENSARY WHO CAN HELP FIND A SOLUTION TO YOUR SITUATION.
Are you concerned about domestic abuse during this time? Call 0330 3337 444 or access help here when it is safe to do so www.essexcompass.org.uk
We are changing GP appointments to telephone consultations, the GP will then book face to face appointments only if clinically necessary and safe to do so.
We are still carrying out all childhood immunisations, please call to book an appointment with the nurses.
We are also able to offer a video consultation if needed.
Please do not come to the surgery if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath.
Please follow the CORONOVIRUS isolation guidance on the NHS website.
The appointments system will likely be reassessed regularly with the changing need and demands of the practice.
Please be patient with staff and understand this is being done for your safety and ours to ensure we can continue to run an effective service for you.
We have awarded a GOLD Pride in Practice award by the LGBT foundation in recognition of the changes we have made to policies and practice within the surgery.
Please check out our LGBT+ section using the link on the right to view some of our policies and support that is available. If you feel you have not been supported by the surgery then please get in touch so we can assist you.
