Providing lifelong care that is: safe, effective & dependable - for all of our community.

 

***IF YOU ARE A PAID HEALTH OR SOCIAL CARE WORKER, PLEASE CONTACT THE SURGERY SO THAT WE CAN BOOK YOU IN FOR YOUR COVID VACCINATION***

 

 

February 2021 - In order to keep our patients safe, the surgery is continuing to operate a triage model of care.  Once your care needs have been assessed by a clinician - either by phone or by reviewing your online consultation - please be assured that you will be offered a face-to-face appointment if the clinician feels that your care cannot be handled over the phone. 

 

 

COVID-19 Vaccine - We are joining with our colleagues in S&W Herefordshire to deliver the COVID-19 vaccines from a central location in Ross-on-Wye.  Patients will be contacted directly to attend the clinics in the order determined by NHS England, starting with the staff and residents of care homes.  Be assured that as soon as you are entitled to receive the vaccine, you will be contacted.  Please note that in order to staff the clinics, we are having to reduce the number of routine appointments at the surgery.  Please be patient with our reception team if you are not able to book an appointment for the day of your choice.


Please use Online Consult - This is a new service for all NHS GP Practices and our reception team can walk you through how to use it.

Stop Smoking

 


 

Want to quit?

 

Make an appointment to see our Health Care Assistant who can give advice and support.

 

GPs are delighted to help people who have decided to quit smoking. About 40% of smokers will die from a smoking-related condition, so they know that stopping is one change that will make a big difference to your life.

 

Patients will see health benefits within days, such as improved taste and smell, while important benefits, such as lower risks of heart attack, stroke, lung cancer and improvements in breathing will happen in the first year or two.

 

Your GP will probably have been chasing you to stop smoking if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, circulation problems or history of stroke, heart attack, angina, asthma or chronic lung disorders.

 

There are excellent local NHS stop-smoking services. These NHS services are very good at tailoring treatment to your lifestyle habits. With medication and the support of these services, you're four times more likely to give up successfully.
