Reduced capacity at the surgery

We continue to experience reduced capacity due to sickness across our GP team and will continue to do so at least until the end of February.  All appointment requests are triaged by a GP and appointments are allocated according to clinical need. There may be times that we have to switch eConsult off on-line to help us manage demand.  We will continue to take requests over the telephone or at our front desk but we may have to restrict requests to urgent medical problems only.

Group A Strep & Scarlet Fever

You may have seen in the news and online stories about Group A Strep.

The latest data from the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) shows that scarlet fever cases continue to remain higher than we would typically see at this time of year.

Scarlet fever is a contagious infection that mostly affects young children. It’s easily treated with antibiotics.

The first signs of scarlet fever can be flu-like symptoms, including a high temperature, a sore throat and swollen neck glands (a large lump on the side of your neck).
