Online Appointment System

Due to unprecedented demand that is being seen in General Practice locally and nationally, the Online Appointment System will only be available to submit queries during surgery opening hours for the time being.

Please continue to use 111 and self care options – such as the pharmacy and NHS Online – outside of these hours. Thank you.

Alert 1

Practice Covid Safety Information - Monday 19th July

Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.

From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery – patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE as per primary care guidance.

We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.

The front door and waiting room however will be open. We ask you to follow 2m social distancing within our premises as there is limited seating.

In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face and by phone) not counting our contribution to vaccinating 90% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months and the largest Flu campaign ever run by us.

The Simpson Centre and Penn Surgery have tried to keep patients and staff safe during the Pandemic and will continue to do so.

Thank you
