CORONAVIRUS PATIENT INFORMATION STATEMENT

Dear patients

To support the latest Public Health England guidelines we are moving to a telephone triage system for all GP appointments from today. If you have an urgent requirement to see a GP, then please phone on the day. The receptionist will take some details and pass this to the GP who will then ring you at the time allocated. All advance and online appointments will be suspended for GP appointments and those made have been cancelled. Please do not come into the surgery.

Our email is admin.theavenue@nhs.net and you can use this to request any repeat prescriptions. Thank you for your understanding and patience at this time. More information on Covid 19 can be found on the NHS choices website on this link https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
