The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

The risk to the general public is moderate. If you have arrived back to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau within 14 days, follow the specific advice for returning travellers.   Call 111 now if you've been:

• to Wuhan or Hubei Province in China in the last 14 days (even if you do not have symptoms)

• to other parts of China, including Macau and Hong Kong, in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if it's mild)

• to Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Republic of Korea or Malaysia in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if it's mild)

• in close contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus Further information is available on The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited Wuhan or Hubei province, China are currently in isolation.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

Do not go to a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital. Call 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.  Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.  Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

circled_dayWe operate an appointment system and strive to see you as soon as possible. If you have an appointment and are unable to attend please let us know as soon as possible. The surgery also requires that patients arrive on time, as we cannot guarantee we will be able to see you if you arrive late. To book an appointment please use the following numbers:

  • School House Surgery 01273 551031
  • Church Surgery  01273 684500

Any urgent cases will be seen on the same day, please tell us if you are in a telephone box and we will return your call. Say immediately if you feel your call is urgent. For urgent conditions you may be put through to speak to the GP.

If your condition is non-urgent you can expect to see a GP within two working days, though you may have to wait longer if you wish to see a particular GP at a particular time or day.

Please let us know if more than one person in your family needs to be seen as this will require more than one appointment.

Telephone Consultations

If you wish to have a telephone consultation with the doctor you will be given a time to ring the surgery. Please try to keep to these times as there may be several people telephoning within a short space of time.

Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly. Nursing appointments are also booked via reception at both surgeries. We normally book one week in advance only.

Chaperones & Interpreters

Tell us if you want someone to accompany you during an examination. We can also arrange interpretation and translation services in person or via the telephone for patients who do not speak English or for deaf patients. Please let us know if you need this service when booking your appointment.


The Practice would always appreciate prompt cancellation of your booked appointment so that these appointments can be offered to other patients in need.  Repeated appointments which are missed without cancellation wastes resources. The practice has a policy in place where we will inform patients when they do not attend or do not cancel.  If this happens consistently, patients may be removed from the practice list.

Extended Hours Service

This is a pre –bookable NHS service. You may have recently been offered an appointment at a Medical Practice to see a GP or other healthcare professional in the evenings or weekends.
