Please be aware Stickney Surgery is still open and we encourage people to get in touch for any health concerns that cannot be dealt with by the individual, their family or friends, or the local pharmacy
These changes are happening to help keep staff and patients safe
We want to discourage people queuing outside a GP practice and waiting in the waiting area, to reduce the spread of coronavirus
If you have coronavirus symptoms DO NOT come into the practice– self isolate and seek help via NHS 111 or 111.nhs.uk

Face-coverings are advised to protect both the patient and other people with whom they have contact, Stickney Surgery encourages the use of face-coverings.

Face to face appointment – face covering
Please wear a face covering to the surgery, at the surgery, and during your consultation, as this is in line with government advice about face covering in public spaces where social distancing is difficult A cloth face covering should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably. It can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.
