 Welcome to Elmswood Surgery!

We aim to use this website to keep you informed about our services, and to update it with any changes or innovations.

MASKS - update July 2019

We request that patients continue to wear a face mask/covering (or visor if exempt) when attending the Practice.  This is to protect staff as well as vulnerable patients that use our services.

The infection control guidance for General Practice has not changed and all staff will therefore continue to wear appropriate PPE to protect each other as well as our patients.

We cannot supply patients with a mask, and they do not need to be of a surgical standard

Here is a link to the government website with useful information and advice regarding Coronavirus:

Current guidance about shielding, vulnerable patients and other guidance regarding Covid-19, is available on:

May 2021 update

Please note that our main doors are open and patients are able to access reception services by telephone or face to face.

We are inviting patients in for face to face GP appointments where clinically appropriate and the majority of our nurse appointments are face to face

(some respiratory reviews are being done by telephone).

If you attend the Practice, please help us to keep staff and patients safe by wearing a face covering and maintaining social distance. 

Our waiting room is still at half capacity, so please be aware that if the waiting room is full, you will be asked to wait outside.

For more information regarding our current appointment system, please see the appointments section on our website or click here

We are proud that we have maintained a "doors open" approach throughout the pandemic and are looking forward to seeing more patients

face to face over the coming months as it becomes safer to do so.

COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAMME

In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a few different health care organisations, including hospitals, GP practices, care homes, and others are working together on the Covid-19 vaccination programme.

This means that when it is your turn to be vaccinated, this may not be at you GP practice.
