Welcome to Houghton Medical Group

Our practice is highly patient focused and we aim to provide you with a welcoming, professional and comprehensive primary health care service. Patients will receive individual care appropriate to their own needs and this will be delivered by combining the skills of the practice team with other health and social care workers in the community.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It is caused by a virus called coronavirus.

 If you or any of your household have:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss of taste or smell

You must all stay at home. Visit www.nhs.uk to request a coronavirus test and for more information on the virus.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone. You do not need to call 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Please do not attend the surgery unless we have asked you to do so. If we do ask you to attend, we request that you wear a mask or a face covering. Do not attend the surgery if you develop symptoms of coronavirus.
