To help prevent the spread of Covid19 we are asking everyone attending to wear a face covering that covers both your mouth and nose. Please ensure that this is in place before entering the premises and remains in place until leaving the premises. Thank you for your support during our continued restrictions.

Whilst we are currently working in different ways, please remember that we are still here.  All requests for GP appointments will now be triaged by your doctor to assess the need to be seen.

 

COVID19 is unlikely to cause a serious illness in children, but please remember children can still become seriously unwell from other causes that are always around. Please do not let concerns over COVID19 stop you from contacting medical services. If you are not sure if your child needs to be seen please go to https://www.what0-18.nhs.uk/national for advice or contact 111 or your GP. For information about crying babies go to https://www.what0-18.nhs.uk/national If your child is severely unwell call 999 or go to ED.

Message from Martonside Medical Centre: Please note our surgery has restricted access, all contact must be by telephone in the first instance. Please DO NOT just turn up. This is to ensure the safety and protection of everyone. Thank you. 

 

 If the surgery is closed and you require urgent medical assistance which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please ring 111.

 

Calls to NHS 111 are free from both landlines and mobiles.

 

If you have a life threatening medical emergency, please dial 999
