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.

Accessing GP Services

Patients requiring GP services should contact the Surgery by telephoning 01773 304700. 

The receptionist will ask the patient to provide a few basic details regarding the nature of the call and, if appropriate, put the patient on a GP’s triage list. This information is to help the GP prioritise the patients’ needs. 

The GP will telephone the patient (usually the same day, depending on the urgency and timing of the request). Up to 2 telephone attempts will made. Patients should have their telephone close by so as to avoid missing the call. The caller ID will be from a private/unknown caller.

The GP will ask the patient questions and determine the course of treatment. This may be the GP booking a face-to-face appointment with a GP, Advanced Clinical Practitioner, a Practice Pharmacist, a Nurse or another clinician. It could also be providing advice over the phone, issuing a prescription, or making a referral to another service for tests and/or investigations.

Information on Sayana Press Contraceptive Injection

For those patients who have been taught how to self-administer this injection, we have been informed there is a supply issue, and so if you are unable to get this on prescription currently please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment for this to be done at the practice.

Demonstrating Your Covid 19 Vaccination Status When Travelling Abroad

From 17 May, you may be able to show your COVID-19 vaccination status as proof of your status when travelling abroad.

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.

If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.

Please do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
