Welcome to Dr Oliver and Partners
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.
Corona Virus - Covid 19
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic Dr Oliver & Partners are operating a restricted service focused on clinical priority.
We are limiting face to face consultations to minimise community transmission of the virus.
If you require an appointment please telephone 01556 502050 first. We will ask you your details and a rough idea of the problem and return your call later. We will aim to deal with the enquiry over the telephone but if a practice based consultation is essential this will be arranged upon discussion with a doctor/nurse or staff member first.
Routine work like basic blood tests for chronic conditions, medical reports, chronic condition monitoring will be suspended temporarily.
Prescriptions should be requested by calling 01556 505682 or you can phone the practice and ask to register for our online ordering service. THE LOCAL PHARMACIES ARE UNDER ENORMOUS PRESSURE DUE TO THE NUMBER OF PRESCRIPTIONS THEY ARE HAVING TO DEAL WITH. PLEASE THEREFORE DO NOT ORDER YOUR MEDICATIONS EARLIER THAN YOU NEED THEM.
Please consider delaying appointments for annoying but less severe problems like sore joints or skin problems.
We are likely to have staff members self isolating or off unwell hence there is likely to be disruption to our usual timely service.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO CALL US IF YOU HAVE MILD VIRAL SYMPTOMS OF FEVER >37.8C, COUGH OR COLD. You should self isolate for 7 days and refer to NHS website for further information
If you have severe symptoms of fever, cough, breathlessness, confusion then please call us on 01556 502050 or 111
Thank you for your understanding at this challenging time.
Don’t panic but be prepared for some inconvenience. We will continue to monitor the situation.
We are now offering video consultations within the practice on a system called NHS Near Me. You can use this if you have a PC or a laptop with a camera or by using a smart-phone or tablet.
If the doctor suggests a video consultation and you are agreeable then you will be given an appointment time and a web link to log into the virtual waiting room. You will need to enter your name and a contact phone number.
It works via your internet browser in your computer or device. Unfortunately it does not work in Internet Explorer but does work in Chrome or Safari.
