Awaiting a Hospital appointment or wanting a result?

Please do not ring the surgery if you are under the hospital already to chase a result or a hospital appointment. If you have not heard from the hospital about a planned appointment or feel you may need to amend or request your appointment is brought forward please contact the hospital directly. You can contact the main hospital switchboard and ask to speak to your consultants secretary. The practice has no other way of doing this other than the above and you will be directed to do this. 

Joint Injection Service

We are pleased to confirm that this service is now fully operational again as we (hopefully) move away from the pandemic. Please contact the surgery if you feel you need a joint injection.

Respect your Surgery and Staff

Over the last couple of months we have noticed an increase in the aggression and use of abusive language our staff are receiving.

We would like to remind our patients that we are working very hard to meet the needs of all our patients and any form of aggression, abuse or use of bad language towards our team will not be tolerated.

If you are unhappy or have any concerns we would request that these are raised in the appropriate manner. 

Thank you. Contact us here.

The EPCC Team will continue to wear face masks, and other PPE as required, to protect our patients and our colleagues and prevent possible infections.

We politely request that patients coming into the surgery continue to wear a mask also please.

Church Walk and Church Street Sites

Our doors are now open and so there is now no need to ring the bell beforehand, but we do still need to manage footfall in the surgery to keep everyone safe. Can we please ask that you do not arrive too early for your appointment and use the external prescription request box at the side of the Church Walk site instead of bringing this to reception.
