We have strongly considered the health and safety of patients and staff following the announcement of the relaxation of wearing face coverings and social distancing. Saltscar Surgery will continue to operate a policy where patients, staff and visitors will be required to wear a face covering and follow social distancing. The local area is currently seeing a large increase in Covid infections and considering we see well and unwell patients at the surgery, we do not feel it is safe to relax our health and safety procedures. We would appreciate your support in helping us to continue to offer safe care to all our patients and maintain the health and safety of our team. If you are visiting the practice and have no face mask, unless exempt, you will be asked to wear a mask. Patients declining to wear a face covering will be triaged on an individual basis. Many thanks for your continued support and cooperation. The Saltscar Team.

If you require a prescription please download the NHS App, or order via the practice prescription email address​ or post your prescription slip through our letterbox. Don't enter the surgery to hand in your prescription slip.

Doctors and staff will be wearing scrubs and PPE  which will include face mask.
 All Prescriptions will be sent electronically to the chemist. NOT to be collected from the surgery
