Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing
whatever your medical condition. Appointments can be made online by telephone or at the reception desk Monday to Friday 08:30 to 18:00.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us
know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
What to do if you have symptoms of Coronavirus
You should stay at home if you develop either:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
How long to stay at home
- If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started.
- If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
You should only contact 111 if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
If you have need to stay at home follow our stay at home guidance

We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Official Surgery announcement in light of the Corona Outbreak
As a precautionary measure, from Monday 16th March 2020 until further notice we have changed our current appointment system.
All appointment requests will be triaged by a GP or nurse. If they feel you need to be seen they will organise a face to face or conduct a telephone consultation.
For appointments that have already been booked, we are in the process of contacting those patients and offering, if appropriate a telephone consultation or cancelling any non-urgent appointments, such as routine bloods tests, blood pressure check, etc.
If you need to order your repeat prescriptions you may order online, or drop the prescription script in the external drop box, or order on the telephone between the hours of 9 am and 12 noon. Dispensing patients can collect their prescription from the dispensary window in the car park.
Access to the War Memorial surgery will be restricted to only those who have been invited to attend, unfortunately due to limited resources we will be closing the Belmont surgery from 30th March 2020
We hope that you will see this as a positive effort on our behalf to minimise any risk to the community and to ensure that we are able to offer patients appropriate healthcare during this very uncertain time.
