Our Mission Statement
Dr Mark Byron is due to retire at the end of June, though he is aware that his help may be needed during the COVID-19 crisis. He has worked here for nearly 30 years and he wishes to say a few parting words. "It has been a privilege working here at Stockwood Medical centre, and I wish to thank this wonderful community for supporting me throughout my time here. I have loved working at the surgery and will miss you all, but I do know that we have a fantastic team here who will continue to provide you with first class care. Thank you again, Mark"
Dr Heather Colyer will be joining the surgery in June 2020. She completed her GP training in Yorkshire working in central Leeds and Sheffield. Her interests include women's health, skin conditions and palliative care. Outside of work she is usually running on trails, hiking up mountains or planning travelling adventures. We wish her a warm welcome.
Corona Virus Advice
Because of the Covid-19 outbreak, we have suspended all GP face to face appointments at the surgery. Instead, we will be offering telephone only appointments. The doctor or nurse practitioner will try to deal with your problem by telephone if at all possible and will arrange a face to face appointment if required.
Please be patient as the telephone lines may be busy. We will update you as Public Guidance changes.
If you have a fever or new continuous cough, self isolate for 14 days and see the online NHS guidance on the management of symptoms. DO NOT visit the surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Visit NHS 111 online.
This is a fast-changing situation and we appreciate your patience and cooperation while GP services across the country adapt to this pandemic. Please follow this link for more detailed information https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/.

If you have a routine appointment booked, eg for injections or dressings, still attend your appointment if you have not been notified of a cancellation.
Child Immunisations Clinic
Child immunisations will take place on Tuesdays, but please DO NOT BRING SIBLINGS. When you arrive ensure we have your mobile number and you will then be asked to remain in your car with your baby until you are telephoned by the nurse for the injection.
Providing proof of coronavirus absence from work
People unable to work for more than seven days because of coronavirus can obtain an isolation note through the NHS website and NHS 111 online. After answering a few questions, an isolation note will be emailed to the user. If you don’t have an email address, you can have the note sent to a trusted family member or friend, or directly to your employer. The service can also be used to generate an isolation note on behalf of someone else.

The "Principle Trial" - Evaluating potential treatments for COVID-19 in older people
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) can be more severe in older people, and people with underlying health conditions. At the moment, there are no specific treatments that we know definitely work against COVID-19. We urgently need research to find medicines that help people get better quickly and stop them needing to go to hospital.
