Welcome to The Hicks Group
The Practice has been in existence, in various forms and in various buildings, since 1821. The Charles Hicks Centre was built in 1987 and extended in 1992. The Roman Gate Surgery replaced premises in Old Court Hall and was occupied in February 1994.
Now more than ever we want to help you through these unprecedented times. Most importantly please take heed of all the government advice about washing hands, wearing a mask or face covering and following the social distancing guidance.
Your GP Surgery Now
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how we consult with you us is different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
We are open during the current lockdown and were though out all of the previous lock down. If you need to see the doctor or a nurse please ring us and an appropriate appointment will be arranged for you. We are still carrying out our usual appointments for blood tests, dressings, immunisations and so on.
Face-to-face appointments are available, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the telephone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you.
If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
The COVID-19 vaccination is not yet available at this practice
Please do not contact the practice - when we are able to offer this vaccination you will be invited according to the Government guidance
