As a GP Practice we are now undertaking a range of work to support the government response to the coronavirus outbreak. Please click here to view more information on how we will process your personal data in the course of this work. You can also click here to view our full COVID-19 privacy notice.

At this time please do not attend the practice, unless you are advised to do so by a member of the Practice team. If you are asked to attend the practice, you will be kept separate from other patients and the Dr will be wearing full PPE. Please note all patients who are required to attend the practice will be asked to wear a face covering. 

Based on Government guidance, our approach at Street Lane Practice approach is: 

 

In general we will try to switch all possible appointments to telephone triage or video consultation.

 

If a patient needs to attend the surgery for face to face review he/she will be screened for flu-like symptoms. If these symptoms are present you will be seen by a GP in protective gear in a designated consultation room. If these symptoms are not present you will be seen at the surgery in the usual way.
