Welcome to Duke Medical Centre
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are only allowing entry to the building if you have an appointment or prior arrangement has been made.
As a practice, we already provide a telephone triage service for advice or appointment requests. We also use video consultations to enable GPs to have face to face consultations with patients. The online triage service available via a service called AccuRx.
However, patients will be seen in the practice if necessary. All Clinical staff wear full PPE when seeing patients.
The Practice Nurse, Health Care Assistant and Phlebotomy appointments are available.
For prescriptions, please continue to ring the central number, use the online service or place your paper requests in the letter box situated in the foyer of the main building.
Prescriptions will be sent electronically where possible to a pharmacy of your choice, this is to minimise transfer of paper. It is important that you contact the reception team to either set up or change a nominated pharmacy.
We encourage patients and visitors to wear a face covering when attending the surgery. Information is available on the government website for exemptions.
When entering the building, please press the intercom situated in the foyer, step back and wait for a member of the reception team. Please bear with staff as they may be busy and not able to answer the door immediately. It is important that you use the hand sanitiser when entering and leaving the building.
We thank you for your ongoing co-operation during this difficult time and please be sensible, follow government guidance and stay safe.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patients' needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
