The practice is still operating a 'closed door' policy. However the shutter will be up between 9am-6pm. This is to be used by patients that have been asked to come down to the surgery only. All other enquiries and booking of appointments will be dealt with via our normal telephone number. 0151 495 5110
Prescriptions can be requested via patient online access in the first instance. If you are not yet signed up for this then please ask our reception staff for more information. You can also order your prescription via our email address: email@example.com and our prescription line number 0151 495 5136 after 10am, our main line number will only accept prescription requests AFTER 2pm. We are limiting the amount of paper requests that come in to the surgery because of COVID transmission so unfortunately as of Monday 16th November paper requests will no longer be accepted. The post box on the wall will be blocked and will not be in use. One of the above will have to be used as an alternative to ordering your requests. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we have to put plans in plans to protect both patients and staff during these uncertain times.

Welcome to Newtown Surgery
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
NOTICE TO PATIENTS - COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS)
AS OF 15TH June 2020 ALL PATIENTS AND VISITORS ARE ASKED TO WHERE A FACE COVERING WHEN ATTENDING THE PRACTICE. THIS WILL NOT BE PROVIDED BY THE PRACTICE AND WILL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PATIENT.
The recent outbreak of Covid- 19 is placing new and increasing challenges on all our member practices and our primary concern is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff
For the very same reason this practice, in line with all those in the area, has decided to put measures into place as pre-emptive contingencies to reduce and minimise the risks with transmission. This risk is for you as our patient but also for the staff who work here in the practice.
These measures may vary slightly in individual practices but we ask for you co-operation and patience in supporting the actions. This will ensure that we are still able to deliver the necessary care to all our patients.
National guidance from NHS England has mandated that all online booking appointments are suspended across the country. The reason we have done this is that this mitigates any potential risk of infected patients booking an appointment online and attending the surgery.
Instead, all appointments will be triaged in the first instance. Telephone triage is a process that facilitates signposting and the giving of relevant clinical advice. Face to face appointments will be booked when agreed during this triage/initial consultation with either a GP or Nurse. The facility to request prescriptions online is still available to all patients.
We would like to reassure all our patients that we are continuing to work with NHS England, the CCG and Public Health to make sure that what we are doing is always in the best interest of our patients and our staff.
Regular updates are provided on our website
We would like to thank all our patients for their co-operation and understanding
WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.
