St Mary’s Surgery Action:
In Response to the Corona Virus we have made changes to our appointment system – We are limiting face-to-face contact for the time being.
Our Receptionists will offer you a Telephone appointment with the GP – who will then triage your symptoms over the telephone. If they then feel you need to be seen, they will offer you a face-to-face appointment at the Surgery.
· Repeat medication can be ordered through your local pharmacy
· Sick notes can be requested over the telephone and we will post them to your home address
Our Practice Nurse is still holding weekly clinics - she can offer urgent blood tests, baby immunisations, hormone injections & contraception injections. We will also commence smear testing from 1st June 2020 - please call the surgery to book your appointment.
We appreciate your understanding at this time
