Supplementary Privacy Notice on COVID-19

The Surgery will be closed on Thursday 24 September 2020 from 12:30 due to GP/staff training. We apologise for any inconvenience. In case of emergency please contact 111 service (Urgent Care Centre)




This is a precautionary measure in relation to the Coronavirus Pandemic


We will now be conducting our consultations via telephone.


Please contact the surgery through "econsult" or call reception and ask for a telephone call back with a GP. We envisage being able to resolve many problems in this manner, however, please be assured that if the GP needs to see you face to face, they will advise you of this on the call and book you in appropriately.


We have made this decision as a precautionary measure to keep our patients and team members safe.


We appreciate your understanding, Old Forge


Our receptionists are here to help you get to the right service. Please don't be offended if they ask what the problem is when you call to make an appointment. The receptionist might suggest other professionals that could help you such as: Opticians, Pharmacist, Nurse, Family Services or Support Groups. Thank you for your co-operation with this.
