Non-urgent advice: Patient Notice
New Phone System: We have a new phone system which went live on Friday, 9 June 2023. This should enhance your experience as a patient by improving our workflow. One of the changes being implemented is that dispensary phone lines will only be open between 11.00am & 12 noon and 3.00pm & 4.00pm for medication/prescription queries. Any queries regarding referrals should be between 10.00am & 12.30pm. Please bear with us whilst we embed the new system.
New Patients: Great Staughton Surgery is currently only accepting newborn babies of existing patients and immediate family members where all other family are registered with us eg. a mother where the father and 2 children are already registered at Great Staughton Surgery.
Face Coverings: Patients and visitors are no longer required to wear face coverings or follow social distancing measures when visiting the surgery, unless they have a cough, cold or covid symptoms.
