Notice: Due to the coronavirus outbreak in the UK, Cockhedge Medical Centre have suspended all online appointment bookings . The reason we have done this is to stop the risk of an infected patient booking an online appointment and attending the surgery. Face to face appointments will only be booked when agreed during a triage telephone call with a clinician. All our appointments will continue to be triaged by our patient advisers.
If you have an appointment at the practice please press the buzzer to speak to a member of our team via an intercom. Before you enter the building you will be asked to use the hand sanitising station in the foyer. Please wait in the waiting room until you are called by a clinician. Following your appointment please exit the building via the same door by either pressing the exit button or waiting for the door to open automatically.
If you currently do not have online access you can download and sign up for the NHS App. You can verify your ID for the app without coming into the practice.
We would like to thank all our patients for their cooperation and understanding.
