Elm Lodge Surgery offers face-to-face and telephone appointments
The surgery is open and all the surgery team are working hard to provide the best possible care to our patients, please do book an appointment through patient online, the NHS app, or by calling the surgery, if you need our help.
We offer a choice of telephone appointments and face-to-face appointments with the GP team. When booking appointments the receptionist will ask for a brief reason for the consultation.
Our aim is to provide safe care to all of our patients including those who are immunocompromised, this may mean that you need to speak to a doctor on the phone rather than in person. Where there is a clinical need, following a phone consultation, the GP will arrange a convenient time for you to come into the surgery for an examination. We are thankful to our patients for being so understanding of the need to protect vulnerable patients in our community.
We are providing face-to-face appointments with our practice nurses for immunisations, injections, dressings, smear tests and stitch removal.
We aim to give you the best possible care, in a clean and safe environment and place great importance on reducing the risk of infection to patients and our staff.
