Latest Face Covering Guidelines and Exemption Cards

GP practices are under no obligation to provide letters of support for anyone who does not fall under the list of exemptions but considers them to have another reason to be exempt.

Government Guidance on Face Coverings

If you or somebody you know has a disability and are unable to wear a face covering, the link below offers printable exemption cards to use when out and about. These cards give a clear explanation as to the reason a mask cannot be worn.

Help for Shielding Patients

If you are shielding or self-isolating and you are having difficulties getting the help you need, please phone the practice and ask to speak with our Social Prescriber who will be able to help get you the help you need.

GP Services

The practice is still providing GP services and we would like to remind patients who have any acute conditions which are of concern to still contact the practice so we can review and refer where appropriate, ensuring you are getting the medical attention you need as early as possible.

THANK YOU!!

We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who volunteered their services to help the practice. The volunteers are the reason it was possible for us to offer a delivery service.

Lastly, we would like to say a huge thank you for all the donations of PPE and little luxury items of chocolates and plants to the practice, we have been touched by your generosity and apologise we have not able to make a personal written thank you to individuals.  It is hugely appreciated by all the staff and has really helped in maintaining staff morale at this challenging time.  We really appreciate how lucky we are to work in a community with such a cohesive and proactive local support network.  The community is doing an amazing job of looking after each other.

With best wishes to you all during these difficult times.   Stay safe.
