Over the last couple of months we have noticed an increase in the aggression and use of abusive language our staff are receiving.

We would like to remind our patients that we are working very hard to meet the needs of all our patients and any form of aggression, abuse or use of bad language towards our team will not be tolerated.

If you are unhappy or have any concerns we would request that these are raised in the appropriate manner. 

Thank you. Contact us here.

The EPCC Team will continue to wear face masks, and other PPE as required, to protect our patients and our colleagues and prevent possible infections.

We politely request that patients coming into the surgery continue to wear a mask also please.

Church Walk and Church Street Sites

Our doors are now open and so there is now no need to ring the bell beforehand, but we do still need to manage footfall in the surgery to keep everyone safe. Can we please ask that you do not arrive too early for your appointment and use the external prescription request box at the side of the Church Walk site instead of bringing this to reception.

Do you look after someone?

Carers Hub A revised Carers Hub information sheet of available carer services during the coronavirus along with a list of useful telephone numbers

Do you look after someone who cannot get by without your help?

Do you look after someone, a friend, a relative or a neighbour who, due to an illness, disability, frailty, poor mental health or substance misuse, would struggle without your support?

Information on help and support for carers can be found here

It is important you let the practice know if you look after someone.  We can add you to our Carer Register for you to gain access to information and support, including our Carer Champions at the practice.  Carer Champions help with the identification of carers, act as a voice for carers and are a key point of contact for carer information.

Our Carer Champions are Samantha Papworth and Diane Rowley and both are keen to provide a quality service and help carers as much as possible.  If they are not available at the time of your query, please leave a message and they will contact you at the earliest possible convenience. By completing this questionnaire and returning it to the practice, you can help us to monitor and improve our service.

Do You Look After Someone is a comprehensive carers booklet produced by Nottinghamshire County Council

Carers Emergency Plan is a form requiring completion, to provide the necessary information to help support the person cared for in the event of an emergency situation involving the carer
