Dear patients, as the vast majority of restrictions are lifted on the 19th July 2021, yet as Covid cases continue to rise daily into the 50-60 thousands, Fairhill Medical Practice will be following the NHS England and Public Health Guidance when it comes to wearing facemasks. THEREFORE….all staff will continue to wear face masks within the practice when coming face to face with patients.
We expect all patients entering the building to also wear a face mask. You will not be permitted entry to the practice without one.
These measures are remaining in place to protect our staff, yourselves and other patients within the building. We hope you can understand this reasoning and will comply. Those that do not will not be permitted entry to the building and other arrangements will need to be made should you have a face to face appointment.
Thank you all for your co-operation and please stay safe.

General Practice at Fairhill Medical Practice during Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Please be aware, our practice is open but providing services in a different way during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you or your child is unwell please contact us as usual by telephone or online booking. Please do not delay seeking advice if needed. Doctor and nursing appointments are available during our normal working hours. Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 8am – 6:30pm.
When you call and speak to one of our receptionists you will be asked a number of questions so that your appointment can be booked appropriately. We have First Contact Physiotherapists, a Clinical Pharmacist, a Social Prescriber and a Lifestyle Coach, so the receptionist may signpost you to one of these services if more appropriate than a GP appointment.
Please do not come to the practice unless you have a booked face to face appointment. You will be required to wear a face mask when you come for your appointment.
Please contact NHS 111 on the telephone or online as usual outside of normal practice hours.
You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help.
To enable us to improve our services we welcome all feedback. Please contact one of the Branch Manager’s by email if you wish to discuss anything.
