For further information regarding our practice and COVID-19 please visit our COVID-19 page. This includes information regarding the symptoms of the virus and also how to arrange repeat prescriptios during this time. 

We are now offering video consultations following a triage appointment with the GP or the Nurse. This is to help keep the number of patients in the practice to a minimum. Click here for the link for a video consultation but only when invited to do so. 

During this time we are asking everyone that is attending the practice for an appointment to wear a face covering. This includes non-medical masks and scarves. The Practice however will NOT be able to provide a face mask to patients.

In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we kindly ask that you do not bring anyone else with you to any appointments wherever possible.

As from Monday 23rd March, Thornton Surgery will be closed due to staff shortages.
