Following recent communications we now have a number of staff members self isolating due to positive Covid tests.
The Brampton site has re-opened to patients who will be seen as appropriate following clinical assessment.
We aren't expecting any impact on patients other than potential delays in answering the phone or it taking longer for a clinician to get back to you.
We continue to follow all infection control guidelines as well as Covid safe working practices.
COVID 19 VACCINATIONS - Updated 11.12.20
For the efficient roll out of the vaccination programme we will be sending text message notifications. Please notify us if we don't already have your mobile number by texting your Name and Date of Birth to 07811714463 so we can update your records.
If you do not have a mobile phone you will still be informed when eligible for a vaccination either by phone or letter.
The first phase of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme has started.
When it is the right time patients will receive an invitation to come forward.
This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number.
Please do not contact the practice to get an appointment until you receive this letter.
Patient COVID-19 Survey
This will allow Primary Care to gather feedback on your experience of health care during COVID-19. This will help us understand how you feel about the changes that have been made and your concerns around accessing services as we move forward with COVID-19 and return to some sort of normal life.

Thank you for your feedback.
Following guidance from NHS England and to protect our patients and staff there is no longer any walk-in access to the practice unless you are collecting certain prescriptions - see below.
All appointments must be pre-booked by calling our Reception on 016977 2551 or online. Please help us by providing the reason for your appointment to allow us to determine if this can be booked immediately or triaged by a GP. Appointments will be allocated only if face to face patient care is clinically required.
Demand for medication remains very high. Please note the following information for all patients
- Please do not request medication "just in case" or for longer periods than your usual prescription.
-- Please allow 7 clear days for your medication to be dispensed.
- If you are asking someone else to collect your medication they will need to know
- Your name and address
- Date of Birth
- How many items you are expecting
- Whether you pay for your prescription or what your exemption - this is the box you would normally tick on the back of your prescription.
ASSESSMENT "RED" CENTRE
During the current COVID-19 outbreak, patients experiencing certain symptoms (breathing issues/fever) and who have been telephone assessed by a GP as needing face to face examination will be called for assessment at our "Red" centre sited at Corby Hill surgery.
Click here https://northcumbriaccg.nhs.uk/contact-us/coronavirus-information/local-hubs-information to find out more about where to go and what it will feel like when you arrive. There is also a short film and animation to explain to children why it looks different to what they are used to seeing at the practice.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE RED ASSESSMENT CENTRE UNLESS ADVISED TO DO SO BY A GP.
