Important Patient Notice

Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus, Birchwood Surgery has made the decision to reduce the number of patients coming into the surgery. This is to minimise the risk of contracting the virus for both our staff and patients.

We ask all our patients where necessary to avoid visiting the surgery, unless you have been advised to do so by one of our GP’s.

We are converting more and more appointments to telephone and will be encouraging electronic prescribing and ask that anyone who has symptoms of a cough or cold, that they do not come into the surgery.

If you are concerned you have the coronavirus please complete the questions through NHS 111 online https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19.

Please remember that our interactive website allows you to send the GP/Nurse a question, request repeat medication, get further advise on Coronavirus and other symptoms, request Med 3’s and much more, please utilise this option.

May we also ask that you are understanding to our staff who are under increased pressure at this current time.
