Welcome to Tyntesfield Medical Group
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Please see the update at the end of this section.
We are operating differently during the coronavirus pandemic to keep our patients and our staff safe.
All appointments with doctors will initially be a telephone appointment. This may be converted to a video or face-to-face appointment as required.
Please do not turn up at our surgeries if you have not been invited. When you do arrive for your appointment, please either stay in your car or remain outside the surgery -you will be called on your mobile when we are ready for you to come in. If you are not able to wait in a car or outside then you are able to come into the waiting room and take a seat as long as there is space allowing for social distancing. It is important that you sanitise your hands on arrival and follow the instructions for sanitising the seat that you sit on.
You must wear a face covering when you enter our buildings.
Due to Covid we previously had to suspend routine chronic disease monitoring invites to ensure we were not putting our patients at any unnecessary risk. We have now started to resume invites, however we are prioritising conditions that may put patients at a higher risk of serious illness from Covid. Apologies if your invite is delayed.
We are not currently running a travel clinic. If you need travel services at this time, please contact a dedicated travel medicine provider.
