Notice of work to Stennack Surgery car park
UPDATED - Monday 20th December 2021
Please note that we will be carrying out repairs to the block paving in our car park for four days, starting on Tuesday 4th January up to and including Friday 7th January. These essential works will unfortunately mean a reduction in our patient parking as a number of parking spaces will need to be coned off for your safety and for the contractors to work. Unfortunately our contractors have been unable to carry out the repairs during the weekend and we can only apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause to you, our patients.
If you are visiting the Surgery or the Pharmacy during these four days, please allow plenty of time in case you have to park elsewhere or wait for a parking space.
Thank you for your patience and understanding

Pressure on the NHS
Due to the current unprecedented pressure on the NHS in Cornwall, please be aware that there may be interruptions to the provision of routine services in order to enable us to concentrate on urgent medical issues.
We are working tirelessly to respond to everybody in a timely manner but need to prioritise patients with acute medical issues and also the COVID Booster programme at times when demand is very high.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Zero Tolerance Campaign for Health Service Staff
The Practice supports the government's 'Zero Tolerance' campaign for Health Service Staff. This states that GPs and their staff have a right to care for others without fear of being attacked or abused. To successfully provide these services a mutual respect between all the staff and patients has to be in place.
In order for us as GP practice to maintain good relations with our patients we would like to ask all of our patients to read and take note of the types of behaviour that would be found unacceptable:
- Using bad language or swearing at practice staff
- Any physical violence towards any member of the Primary Health Care Team or other patients, such as pushing or shoving
- Verbal abuse towards the staff
- We ask you to treat all of our staff courteously at all times
At Stennack we are here to help and aim to be as polite and helpful as possible, even during difficult times.
Thank you for being a polite, understanding patient of Stennack Surgery.
