PARKING

It is with regret that patients will no longer be able to park on Elgar House car park. We have had to make this difficult decision as there have been instances where doctors have not been able to exit the car park in emergencies putting patient's health at risk, There has also been damage to staff cars and sadly staff have received verbal abuse.

Within the next few weeks Parking Eye, a member of the British Parking Association will be issuing fines for unauthorised vehicles parked.

THIS WILL ALSO APPLY WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED, i.e. AT THE WEEKEND AND BANK HOLIDAYS.

Further to our recent patient survey, we have added a new phone line for prescription queries, which we hope will free up our main lines for patients who want to book appointments.  The new number is 01527 63770.

Patients experiencing a medical emergency out-of-hours should telephone our surgery, where they will hear a recorded message giving clear instructions, and the current phone number for the out of hours service.  

NHS 111

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor. 

Calls to 111 are free from landlines and mobiles.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
