Coronavirus (Covid-19): Service Updates
Letters of Exemption to Wearing Face Coverings
We have had an increase in requests from patients for letters of exemption to wearing face coverings in various public settings.
Please note that there is no requirement for a doctor’s letter or certificate in relation to the wearing of face coverings. We do not provide these.
If you are an employer, please do not ask your employees to seek such letters as this stops us providing medical care to our patients with genuine health needs.

GP Face to Face Appointments
Albion Street have converted all GP face to face appointments to telephone appointments. Please DO NOT come into the practice unless you have been invited in by staff.
6 Week Baby-Checks
We will carry these out at 8 weeks instead of at 6 weeks so that your baby can have their immunisation on the same day (or if your baby is unwell that day, shortly after). You will be offered an appointment with a GP and nurse on the same day. We are doing this to avoid repeated visits to the practice for your baby and you during the corona virus outbreak.
Nurse Appointments - Urgent only from now on
Our nurses will ONLY see patients have urgent needs e.g. complex dressings, blood tests for monitoring, baby immunisations and other essential injections. All long term condition reviews will be carried out over the telephone.
Healthcare assistant appointments (HCA)
Urgent only from now on for dressings, blood tests for monitoring, and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (at request of GP only at present)
