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.
After 19th July, for your safety and that of the staff, you will still be required to wear a mask if you visit the surgery.
Visiting our practice? Please continue to wear a face covering and social distance
All our COVID-19 secure measures remain in place and this will not change when Government guidance changes on 19th July 2021.
Patients are asked to continue to wear a face covering, unless they are exempt and to follow social distancing when visiting our GP practice.
This follows the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings and will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.
Thank you for your continued support.
Your GP Surgery Now
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how we consult with you is different and will remain so for the foreseeable future. This limits face-to-face contact whenever possible and helps stop the spread of coronavirus.
We are open and have been though out all of the lock down periods. If you need an appointment please ring us and an appropriate appointment will be arranged for you with a doctor, nurse, pharmacist or another expert in the healthcare team. Depending on your issue this maybe over the telephone, via video link or face to face.
Face-to-face appointments continue to be available, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the telephone first to assess what would be most appropriate for you.
We are still carrying out our usual face to face appointments for blood tests, dressings, immunisations and so on.
If you are asked to come into the surgery for an appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. The doors and waiting rooms are open on both sites but you should only attend the practice if you have an appointment or need to pick up or drop off something at our request. Reception is NOT open to book appointments.
