Coronavirus

Portland Medical Practice will continue to provide advice/treatment for any medical concerns. However, there have been changes to protect staff and patients during the Covid-19 Pandemic.  

  • Only enter the building if you have a pre-booked appointment or you have been asked to attend by a clinician.
  • Use the intercom to speak to reception team.
  • Place prescription requests through the letterbox at the front of the building.
  • Please follow the latest Covid NHS guidance. Please wear a face mask or covering when entering the building.

Please note we will not be booking face to face GP or Nurse appointments unless advised by a clinician.

All our appointments are now made through the new online eConsult system.

The receptionist will arrange a telephone or video consultation for you if necessary in accordance with national guidance.

Please remember we are still here to provide advice/treatment for any medical concerns. If you need to be seen face to face we can arrange this in a way that keeps you safe. Please do not ignore worrying symptoms.
