We launched our new phone system on Wed 20th October2021 and so far, patient feedback is overwhelmingly positive. 

Our old system was not able to cope with the huge volumes of calls we are now receiving and the contract ending means we have been able to take on board many your comments and suggestions. Many patients have told us that they are delighted at the significant improvements they have noticed when calling the practice.

Infection prevention control guidelines to remain
23 Feb, 2022

The highest priority for the NHS remains the safety of staff, patients and visitors. While COVID restrictions will end in many settings in England from 19 July, everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering (unless they are exempt) and follow social distancing rules.

Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are therefore set to remain in place for all staff and visitors and across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dentists, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.

Read the infection prevention control guidance for further details.
