Reduced Service - Thu 7 July 2022
The Practice is getting a new back-up computer system on Thursday 7 Jul 2022. This means we will have no access to patient clinical records. We expect this to last all morning. We will not be able to deal with routine appointments during this period.
Please call back after 1pm to arrange any routine appointments.
If you have an urgent or emergency issue, please continue to call us. An urgent or emergency situation is one that may require hospital admission

Optometry - Emergency eye provision
If you have concerns about your eye(s) or vision you should phone your normal optometry practice as a first step (link to http://www.plm-optometrists.co.uk/documents/20200325_Optom_Practice_Availability_GG.pdf) If it does not offer telephone support (or if calls are not transferred to another practice) then phone the closest local practice that does. You will then be given further help and advice from an optometrist. If it is then decided that an emergency appointment is required, then this will be arranged for you. This will normally be at an optometry practice but, only if absolutely necessary, hospital consultations can also be organised.
As from 7th April emergency eye appointments in the community are only available from a limited number of practices. These have the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required to reduce the infection risk for both patients and practitioner'
The link will be updated regularly so that patients will be able to access the optometrist that are available
Nurse Practitioners - What can they do for you?
Many patients do not realise we have a highly trained group of nurse practitioners at the Practice. They are specialist nurses with advanced training who can prescribe and refer to hospital with GP approval. If you have any of the following medical problems, please ask for an appointment with one of our Nurse Practitioners and not a GP. By freeing up a GP appointment, you are allowing someone with a significant complex problem to be seen:
Coughs and colds
Diarrhoea and Vomiting
Urinary Tract Infection
