Coronavirus - A New Infection has been detected in Wuhan, China

If you have any concerns that you may have been exposed to or become infected with the novel coronavirus, please follow the links below which will tell you what you should do based on your particular circumstances:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19

Please DO NOT attend the Hospital Emergency Department or Surgery.

Training Practice

We are pleased to announce that we have been approved as a GP training practice. We will therefore be welcoming GP Registrars into our Practice from the 3rd February 2016.

Dr Gillgrass is the practice trainer.

GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are continuing their training in practice.

 

 

Which service, when?

Inappropriate A+E attendances for problems that are neither emergencies nor related to acute injuries from accidents, cause delay in assessment for those who have genuine need. NHS Sheffield is keen to help you choose the right service for your needs at the time, i.e "the right place at the right time". That might be, self-care, pharmacist advice, walk-in-centre, GP (including urgent access as at Crystal Peaks MC),or out of hours GP service. In order to facilitate that, there is some guidance available in our further information list. Please help by accessing the right service at the right time. This is especially important in the winter months when the health service is under additional pressure.Thank you

 

 

HGV/PCV Medicals- £99!

We have reduced our price for Heavy Goods Vehicle and Passenger Carrying Vehicle examinations. We believe there are advantages to having your registered medical practice carrying out these medicals as we have full access to your medical record, if there are any queries and we can rapidly arrange any further tests that may become necessary. Please contact reception to arrange an appointment.

 

Coronavirus

Coronavirus - A New Infection has been detected in Wuhan, China

If you have any concerns that you may have been exposed to or become infected with the novel coronavirus, please follow the links below which will tell you what you should do based on your particular circumstances:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19

Please DO NOT attend the Hospital Emergency Department or Surgery.

All travellers who develop relevant symptoms, however mild, within 14 days of returning from mainland China, should self-isolate at home immediately and call NHS 111.  

All travellers from Wuhan and Hubei Province should self-isolate for 14 days, even if they do not have symptoms, due to the increased risk from that area 

Ordering Medication

At this time of severe NHS pressure, we request that you do NOT make early prescription requests, as these will be refused. There is no medicine shortage but if everyone orders early, there will be. Due to work pressures we may not be able to reply to every “early” request but you can assume it has been declined, in line with NHS policy, to preserve medication supplies for everyone.

Thank you for your consideration
