Welcome to the Green Practice

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

IN LIGHT OF RECENT DEVELOPMENTS, PLEASE NOTE THE HEALTH CENTRE IS NO LONGER GENERALLY ACCESSIBLE. PATIENTS WILL ONLY BE ADMITTED VIA OUR BUZZER SYSTEM.

The following measures have been implemented in order to best protect patients and staff:

  1. GPs and nurses will be offering telephone consultations.
  2. Should you feel like you need to be seen in person you will still be triaged by a GP or nurse FIRST. It will be at their discretion if you are invited to attend the practice.
  3. Prescriptions will be sent to a preferred pharmacy rather than being left at the practice to collect - please advise us which one if you have not done so already!
  4. National screening programmes have been momentarily paused (including cervical/breast/bowel/AAA/diabetic retinopathy) and we will no longer be making arrangements for these tests to be done.
  5. Please still contact your local dental practice or optician should you have any urgent concerns. They are the experts and are best equipped to treat you.
  6. Local pharmacies may have amended their hours of operation - please check before heading out to collect medication!

As the NHS guidelines are changing continuously, please be aware these measures may also change. We will do our best to keep you updated!

Do you have any of these symptoms?

Cough, Fever, Shortness of Breath

Please SELF-ISOLATE at home for 7 days (OR until your fever goes away) and DO NOT attend the surgery. Members of the same household should isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms. If they do, they should self-isolate for a further 7 days from the point symptoms appeared. Testing is no longer being routinely offered in the community

ONLY CALL NHS 24 ON 111 IF YOUR SYMPTOMS WORSEN OR DO NOT IMPROVE AFTER 7 DAYS OF ISOLATION

If you have queries but do not have symptoms, please call the dedicated hotline number on 0800 028 2816 (open 8am-10pm) for advice.

Should you require a sick note for your employer to cover your self-isolation period, they are available on the NHS Inform website.

COVID-19 - Update Video

We decided to make a video to highlight some of the changes we've introduced to help manage the coronavirus pandemic - featuring a few friendly faces! Practice COVID-19 update video - 27th April 2020

Please remember that your NHS is still open for business and you should always seek help for any concerning symptoms!

COPD - COVID-19 

As the COVID-19 virus is a respiratory disease, symptoms can be similar to those already experienced by patients living with COPD. It is important to be able to tell the difference. Nurse Pauline, working with her team at The Cheyne Gang, wanted us to share this leaflet with our COPD patients which was created by a group of researchers at Pharmatics Ltd.  It helpfully details how to distinguish between symptoms and their severity, how to stay safe and well and when to seek urgent medical attention.

It has never been more crucial to carefully manage long-term conditions - such as COPD, asthma and diabetes - and to recognise when you need help. Our practice nurses are here to provide advice and care to those who require it 




We are one of two GP surgeries based at the Stockbridge Health Centre, offering comprehensive primary care services.

We are committed to providing medical care of the highest quality, delivered by our team of GPs, Practice Nurses; supported by our Admin Team and affiliated District Nurses and Health Visitors.

We value continuity and personal care, and being part of the community.

We are a teaching and training practice with a longstanding interest in helping to train medical students and postgraduate doctors.

We do not discriminate on the grounds of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, appearance, social class, religion, disability or medical condition.

We hope the website gives you an informative look at the practice and its services.
