When you arrive for your appointment wait in your car until the time of your appointment.  . 

Vulnerable Patients - if you identify as more vulnerable and would prefer to wait in your car, then please let reception know. We will phone you when we are ready to see you.

Respiratory Clinic -

We are continuing to run our car park Respiratory Clinic behind the Medical Centre and will see patients with respiratory problems in this clinic.  Unfortunately this may not be your usual doctor.  Patients who have respiratory problems will be asked to wait in their car and to phone us when they have arrived for their appointment.  Arrive at the time of your appointment and park behind the building in the designated area.  We will try to see you as close to your appointment time as possible but do not arrive early to avoid waiting in hot cars.  Patients in this clinic will not wait in the waiting room. All payments will be online and we will text account details to you following your consultation. There is no charge if you have Covid-19. Standard consultation charges apply otherwise. 

If you need advice about Covid-19, phone Healthline on 0800 358 5453
