England’s Chief Nurse has today reminded the public that everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules.
Covid restrictions will end in many settings in England from Monday.
However, Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are set to remain in place for all staff and visitors.
That means NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.
Staff, patients and visitors will also be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules when visiting any care setting as well as using face coverings, mask and other personal protection equipment.
The NHS will continue to support staff in ensuring that the guidance is followed in all healthcare settings.
Monday to Friday our telephone lines (01606 544644) are open from 08:00 am - 18:30 pm.
If you require an urgent appointment for an acute medical emergency you can either choose to have a telephone consultation with a clinician or you may be offered an urgent appointment with a clinician on the day you are calling.
Emergencies take priority at all times, so be prepared for unavoidable delays.
Please see "Clinics Outside of Core Hours" Tab above.
Morning & Afternoon
Morning & afternoon
This service will operate from 6.30pm - 8.00am on weekdays and 24 hours at weekends and on Public Holidays.
To access this service ring 111 where an assessment will be made by an experienced Triage Nurse. You will then be either given advice over the telephone, a home visit, an appointment at Northwich Infirmary NEW Centre or Leighton Hospital, or referred to a Community Pharmacist or other services.
If you have an emergency and if a Doctor is not available immediately, please make use of the EMERGENCY AMBULANCE SERVICE by dialling 999.
For urgent problems during surgery hours, please telephone 01606 544644. Surgery hours are between 8.00 am and 6.30 pm on Monday to Friday. In an emergency outside the surgery hours, please telephone 111 between 6.30 pm and 8.00 am, or the surgery number where you will automatically be put through to ‘Out of Hours’.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 and speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
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.
On these days the practice closes for dedicated learning time. The morning surgery is running as normal and we close at 1pm and reopen at 5pm.
In case of an emergency please phone NHS 111 on 111.
We are now able to offer consultations via your phone/laptop/computer.
If you would prefer a video consultation as opposed to a telephone please let the reception team know and they will ensure it is booked in as a video consultation.
We have two new registrars Dr Mahmood and Dr Hewitt and we welcome them both to the practice.
Dr Knox has recently left the practice and has moved on to pastures new.
