Important Update: As of 18/09/2020 our phonelines between 12 and 2pm will be emergency calls only. We ask all medication is ordered online where possible. We are unable to take any medication requests before 10am.

Due to the recent local COVID outbreak we are restricting access to the building to help protect staff and patients. Please only come to the surgery if you have been invited to do so and only at the allocated time. All prescription requests must be done online or over the telephone and will be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy. Due to the high volume of calls, all COVID related queries will be directed to the government website.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer COVID antibody testing at present

The doctors and staff at Lumley surgery are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.  We provide many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

Advice for parents of unwell children

Due to the current circumstances, all appointments are currently being triaged by telephone. Please be advised that no walk-ins are allowed at present. This to protect the safety of both our staff and patients. As all of our online appointment bookings are currently suspended, due to the patient safety screening process, please contact the surgery via telephone to make an appointment. If you do have an appointment at the surgery, we ask that only the patient attends the appointment without any family members if they are not needed. This is to help reduce the footfall of patients in the surgery.

We would like to remind you that anybody entering the surgery MUST wear a face covering, such as a fabric mask, covering the nose and mouth (these do not need to be medical grade masks) but this is an essential requirement when entering the building.

If you are looking for information regarding the coronavirus pandemic please visit the NHS website on coronavirus or the government website for regular updates.
