Face Coverings and arriving at the practice (updated: 22.08.2023)

Face coverings are still required when visiting NHS settings. 

We respectfully request that you wear a face covering when visiting us. Unless you require a parent, guardian or carer, we kindly ask that you attend alone. Please ensure you use your toilet facilities at home prior to arriving at the practice.

We are not providing any face covering exemption letters/ documents in support as there are templates available for you to download within the link above.

Pinn Medical Centre as of 28th March 2018

Important message from your local NHS: Due to the Coronavirus public health crisis, the Pinn Medical Centre will temporarily become a GP Access Centre for non-Coronavirus patients only, in order to safely provide care. The centre will become a GP Access Centre service, providing a clinical resource for telephone triage, and a booked appointment service for non-Coronavirus patients. Patients will be notified when Walk-in Centre services resume.

Cold, cough and flu season

Most colds and coughs take 5 to 7 days to clear.

To speed up your recovery, follow these ‘self-care’ steps below:

  • Ensure you get plenty of rest and sleep
  • Keep yourself warm
  • Drink plenty of water (fruit juice or squash mixed with water is ok) to avoid dehydration
  • Gargle salt water to soothe a sore throat

Please remember that you can also buy medication over the counter or approach your local pharmacist for advice and treatments

If your symptoms persist after 7 days, please book an appointment with a clinician via Klinik
