CERVICAL SMEAR DROP-IN DAY
WEDNESDAY 25th JANUARY 2023 at our NORTH STREET SURGERY
We are running a cervical smear drop-in clinic at North Street Surgery on Wednesday 25th January from 9 a.m.to 5p.m.
If you are female, aged between 25 and 64 years of age, have never had a smear or have not had one in the last three years we would love you to come to our drop-in session to see our three lady nurses. They will be able to answer any of your questions or concerns regarding having a smear.
If you are not available on Wednesday 25th January we have plenty of cervical smear appointments available so please contact us on 01535 605747 to book your appointment.
Our number one priority is the safety of our patients and staff. Therefore we still request that you:
- Wear a face covering in our practice
- Attend alone where possible
- Confirm that you don't have any symptoms of COVID-19
- Continue to follow social distancing measures
Our telephone trige system will remain in place.
Patients requesting an appointment will be managed remotely (online, phone, video), and will be seen face to face if there is a clinical need to do so. Patients will continue to be seen by staff in full Personal protective Equipment (PPE). For further information please click here.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic the NHS has asked GPs to run a TOTAL TRIAGE appointment system until further notice. This is important to reduce avoidable footfall in the practices and protect patients and staff from the risks of infection.
All patients requesting an appointment will be managed remotely (online, phone, video). Patients will be seen face to face only in exceptional circumstances. Any patients visiting the surgery must wear a face covering to protect patients and staff.
Please ring the surgery at 8.30am to arrange an appointment. You can also submit an e-Consult. Should you wish to arrange a telephone appointment please click on the 'Book an Appointment' tab at the top of our website to see availability. Alternatively you can call reception who can book a telephone appointment for you or signpost you to the most appropriate service.
If you are on regular medication, now would be the time to commence online ordering and nominate a local pharmacy to receive your prescription. Please telephone reception and they will activate this facility for you. Alternatively you can hand deliver your prescription request by placing it in the post-box at the front door of the practice or send it through the post to us.
Due to the current increase in demand, please allow four working days for prescription requests to be processed. Thank you.
