Please do not delay seeking help for medical problems during this time. Prompt action can avoid minor problems progressing to something more serious and difficult to treat.
We have taken precautions in the surgery to keep patients and staff safe and to minimise the risk of infection at this time.
We will only see patients with a prearranged appointment. To make an appointment call 012874275.
You will be given an appointment for telephone consultation and an approximate time that this will take place. Your symptoms will be assessed by the doctor and a treatment plan put in place. You may be requested to attend for a review in the surgery if required by the doctor.
WE HAVE ORGANISED THE SURGERY TO SEPARATE RESPIRATORY/POSSIBLE COVID 19 PATIENTS FROM OTHER NON RESPIRATORY PATIENTS TO MINIMISE RISK OF INFECTION.
If a physical examination is required you will be asked to wait in the car park until called by the doctor. Please wear practical clothing such that the examination will be easier and faster.
We request that you wash your hands before coming to the surgery and wear a face mask if you have one.
You will be examined in a specially designated area of the surgery. The examination will be kept as brief as possible to minimise infection risk. You will return to your car and the doctor may phone you to explain the management plan and arrange a prescription if required.
