Noticeboard

PLEASE, we need to emphasise the following.  We are working in a time of national crisis.  When you are asked to attend an appointment by a Doctor or Nurse, that will require face to face contact with MANY of our staff members including reception, nurses or doctors.  YOU must let us know if you have any symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 virus. These are predominantly a cough, temperature, and/or fatigue.

If you do not tell us or attempt to hide symptoms from us we are ALL at risk of becoming ill.  If a significant number of staff become ill the surgery may close . This is a remote but possible scenario.

Please, please stay away, help is available by telephone or video and most routine face to face tests or treatments can wait until your symptoms have gone away.

Stay at home and protect the NHS and other members of the public too.

You will be asked about your symptoms and for a telephone number.  A GP will then call you back in due course. Please do not attend the surgery unless you have been asked to do so by the Doctor.

Please do not to a GP, Pharmacy or hospital if you have a high temperature of 37.8 or above or a new continuous cough. 

Please go online to 111.nhs.uk/covid-19.  Patient should only call 111 if they do not have internet access.

Please use our website or online access to order repeat medication or to book appointments.  We are sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Please email any documents to letters.clayton@nhs.net

Head lice

How to Manage Head lice

Practice guidelines for treatment

  1. Wash hair in the normal way using an ordinary shampoo.
  2. Inspect the rinsing water for lice floating to the surface.
  3. Using LOTS of any hair conditioner and while the hair is very wet, comb through with a fine tooth comb. Make sure that the teeth of the comb slot into the hair at the roots with every stroke. Do this over a pale surface such as a paper towel.
  4. Sodden lice will not move and slippery hair is difficult for lice to get a grip on so they will be easy to remove with a comb.
  5. If you find any lice, repeat this routine every three days for two weeks.  

Please note had lice treatment is available at the Pharmacy for persistent outbreaks
