Dear Patients, thank you for your assistance during the continued COVID-19 pandemic. I am updating you now with the next steps we will be taking as we try to return to the ‘new’ normal way of working.
We will be having a screen around the reception desk and continue with the safe 2m distancing in the surgery, this will also be extended to outside of the building so you may queue safely or wait in your car.
The main corridor will be one way only which means you will be leaving the building either via the fire exit at the end of the corridor turning right to get to the car park or via the fire exit by the treatment rooms turning right to the car park. For PROVIDE areas upstairs follow the red foot prints to the lift or stairs & if you come into the waiting room to drop something off you will be leaving as now, via the fire exit at the side.
Our staff will still be wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) & we would urge you to wear a mask if going into an area with other people.
Our appointments will still be a mix of telephone reviews & video calls & we will begin increasing our routine blood test appointments and nursing routine appointments slowly over the coming weeks.
Most importantly, stay alert, stay safe, regular hand washing & hand sanitising & do not attend the surgery if you develop symptoms of new cough, high temp, lost sense of smell or taste, instead ring NHS111.
Thank you & Kind Regards
From All The Staff At Kingsway Surgery

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The pay for GPs working in Kingsway Surgery in the last financial year (2017/18) was £113,316 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GP(s), 0 part time GP(s) and 0 locum(s) who worked in the practice for more than six months.
However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, or to make any comparison with any other practice.
