Stonefield Street Surgery's Website.
APPOINTMENTS NOW AVAILABLE
This year there are 3 different vaccines which will arrive at different times. Please see our "Clinics & Services" for more information.
As you may be aware over the coming weeks we will be starting to see more patients face to face for reviews with the nurses. However, for the foreseeable future GP appointments will be via telephone or video consultation. Once you have spoken to the GP, you may asked to attend the surgery and will be given a time. If on the day of your appointment you start with any of the following symptoms please ring the surgery before attending and inform the staff: High Temperature, New Persistent cough, Loss of Smell/taste.
Any patient attending the surgery must wear a face covering/mask. Due to the 2 metre rule we have had to remove the majority of chairs from the waiting room so ask that you do not attend more than 5 minutes early or late for your appointment as we are limited to the number of people we can have in the waiting room.
If you arrive and there is already a patient in the foyer, please wait until they have either entered the waiting room or left the building. We have a one-way system and once in the waiting room you will exit via the back door to adhere to social distancing rules.
CHILDHOOD VACCINATIONS WILL CONTINUE AS NORMAL, BUT THE NURSE WILL RING BEFORE YOU ATTEND
ANY PATIENTS WITH A NEW COUGH AND/OR FEVER ARE ADVISED TO SELF ISOLATE FOR 7 DAYS (family members for 14 days)AND CONTACT 111 IF ANY QUERIES (EITHER ON THEIR WEBSITE OR PHONE)
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HOME IF YOU HAVE CORONAVIRUS SYMPTOMS
