  • Covid Restriction Update:  13/7/21
    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.  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.  

    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, by phone, by e consult and by video), not counting vaccinating 90% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months.

    The local community has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for ALL patients as we can.

In an attempt to reduce DNAs and routine waiting times, Severn Fields Medical Practice have made some changes to the appointment system.

Effective now, we are transitioning to a maximum two –week booking system for GPs.

This means that patients waiting times will be shorter for a routine appointment and based on evidence from other practices, our DNAs will hopefully decrease. In the event that GPs are sick there will also be fewer appointments to cancel.

We will continue to offer advance booking for nursing appointments.
