Staff shortages due to Covid. 

We are currently experiencing staff shortages due to Covid which means several Nurse led clinics had to be cancelled. We are working hard to find additional cover to provide these essential services to our patients. 


In light of this we would like to ask all patients attending the surgery who develop any flu or Covid like symptoms to inform our reception team of this at the time of appointment booking and to wear a face mask whilst on our premises. This is to protect our staff so that they can remain at work and provide essential services our patients need. 


Thank you for your understanding and support with this. 




 We are currently affected by staff absence due to sickness. We are working hard to ensure we still provide  best care possible to our patients, however on we had to re-arrange some of pre-booked clinics and we will be contacting all affected patients. 

Unfortunately, on some ocassions we had to take difficult decision to close our branch surgeries an the following sites will be affected: 


 Kirk Hallam closed 12pm on Wednesday 17th July 

Kirk Hallam closed 12pm on Thursday 18th July 

During these closures you can contact still the Old Station Surgery. 

We apologise  for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding. 


 Current demand continues to exeed capacity.

We are under extreme pressure due to a combination of high demand, staff sickness, unfilled vacancies, and lack of GP locum availability.

Please consider how to access the appropriate help.

If we are full for the day you can still use Get medical help - NHS 111  or call 111 and you will be assessed on the basis of clinical need and urgency.

You can also access your local treatment centre through 111 Urgent care services - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

Your local pharmacy can help you with advice and minor ailments. Find a pharmacy - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
