Welcome to Station Road Surgery
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Unfortunately the delivery date of the Flu vaccine has been changed to the 2nd week in October meaning the dates for our flu vaccine drop-ins will be moved, we will update you of the new dates ASAP!
Our aim is to ensure that you have a positive experience with the care we provide and improve the health and well-being of all our patients.
We are constantly updating our website and strive to provide simple delivery of information regarding a wide range of our services and current information.
Avoid the telephone! Consult with one of our GPs online, get a response within 48 hours. Also, request fit notes and other general enquiries.
The surgery is open.
Please be assured we remain open if you need us. A clinician will speak to you on the phone to begin with and only invite you in for a face-to-face appointment if necessary.
To mask or not to mask.
Mask wearing will become optional from 19th July 2021 as per government guidelines. We must stress that the same guidance suggests caution and recommends ongoing wearing of masks in closed spaces and crowded areas where other vulnerable people may be present. When you visit the surgery you will be in close proximity to our clinicians and potentially vulnerable patients. We, therefore, ask that when you visit the surgery you continue to wear a face mask. This is to ensure that those who are most vulnerable are still protected when accessing care.

Phone Lines are busier, therefore please persevere if it takes a longer time to answer or you need to redial. Our busiest periods are between 8 am and 10 am, if your problem will wait, please try after these times. You may be asked to discuss your condition with our reception team first, to assess what will be most appropriate for you and which member of the health care team is best placed to help you. Please be reassured of your confidentiality at all times.
Home Visits are available for the truly housebound and should be requested before 11.00 am. We also have access to district nurses, community matron, specialist community nurses and social prescribing link workers who can all help to advise and support you.
Routine Clinics We have continued to provide care for patients with long-term conditions, such as Asthma, COPD, Diabetes and Epilepsy. Cervical smears will continue to be carried out, as will baby immunisations.
Tolerance We appreciate that this has been a very difficult time for our patients, but would ask that you treat our staff with courtesy and respect at all times. If you do have to make a complaint, we ask that you put it in writing and address it to the Practice Manager. We strive to work together with our patients to improve our services.
