Outside of health and social care settings there are a lot of changes
- No limits on social contact indoors or outdoors
- All settings are open including nightclubs and large venues
- No restrictions at life events such as weddings
- Social distancing rules only required in limited circumstances i.e. people who are self-isolating
Inside health and social care settings we will continue to wear face masks and require visitors to wear them too

Dr Craig and Dr Harrisson recently ran The London Marathon and raised over £4,000 for Brain Research UK. The Charity aims to accelerate the progress of research into neurological conditions - which affect over 12.5 million people in the UK today. This is a cause really worthy of your donation - which is much appreciated.

REMINDER: Hospital & Private Prescriptions
We would like to remind all our patients that if you have been issued a private or hospital prescription, the practice will not be able to assist you in having this dispensed. The GPs cannot take responsibility for another clinicians prescribing (unless it has been specifically asked of them) so will be unable to convert a private or hospital prescription into an NHS FP10 (the usual green prescription and counterfoil).
Hospital prescriptions must be dispensed by a hospital pharmacist (i.e. cannot be converted to an FP10 to be dispensed by a high-street pharmacist), and private prescriptions must be dealt with privately as there will be additional charges (i.e. cannot be converted to an NHS FP10 so only standard NHS prescription charges apply).
We understand that hospital pharmacies can often be very busy, but it is important that you wait to be dealt with by them in order to receive your medication as quickly as possible and to avoid having a wasted journey to the surgery or to your high-street pharmacist to try and obtain the medication elsewhere

Taking ANTIBIOTICS when you don’t need them puts you and your family at risk
Taking antibiotics encourages harmful bacteria that live inside you to become resistant. That means that antibiotics may not work when you really need them. This puts you and your family at risk of a more severe or longer illness.
Take your doctor or nurse’s advice when it comes to antibiotics.
