Welcome to The Lodge Surgery
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Please be advised that Flu Vaccinations will not be available until September. If you are eligible for a vaccination, we will contact you accordingly to arrange this. Please refrain from contacting the surgery regarding flu vaccinations in the meantime.
Arriving For Your Booked Appointment
Due to social distancing and infection control purposes, we are limited to the number of patients that can be admitted to the practice at any one time. This means that you may be asked to stand outside or wait in your car when you arrive for your appointment. As such, please try to arrive at your allocated appointment time and not before.
Thank you for your co-operation!
It is now mandatory to wear a face covering in shops and on public transport. Please be aware that we are not able to provide exemption letters for patients who feel they cannot wear a face mask. Patients can follow this link (to another website) https://www.civicmc.nhs.uk/files/2020/06/Face-Covering-Exemption-Cards.pdf to download an exemption card for people with learning disabilities, SEN, autism and for lip reading.
You can find the latest government guidelines here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own
You should also wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet. Anyone attending the surgery will need to wear a face covering to help keep everybody safe and prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Thank you for your understanding.
