CORONAVIRUS- IF YOU ARE WORRIED IN ANYWAY ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS PLEASE VISIT THE NHS111 CORONAVIRUS SERVICE ONLINE.

In keeping with government guidelines: If you are visiting the surgery for any reason you must now wear your own facial covering before entering the building. Many thanks for helping us to keep everyone safe.

To reduce your chances of catching COVID-19 and reduce pressure on your local GP practice during this busy time, appointments will be carried out over the phone or through online consultation, unless there is a clinical need for you to come into the practice. This will help minimise risk while continuing to ensure people get the care and advice they need.

WE ARE NOW TAKING PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS OVER THE PHONE OR YOU CAN LEAVE THE REQUEST IN THE SCRIPT BOX IN THE LOBBY.

Please remember to allow 48 hours for your prescription requests.

Outside normal surgery hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) emergency cover for the practice is provided by NEMS Community Benefit Services Ltd Out of Hours service. The Out of Hours service provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a service that is led by a range of clinical staff such as GPs, Nurses, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Emergency Care Practitioners.

 This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and will be expected if required to attend Platform One Practice (based on Station Street, Nottingham) if necessary. Advice may also be given if attending for a face to face appointment is not deemed to be required.

 During out of hours you should contact the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation.
