PRACTICE INFORMATION - RE CORONAVIRUS

CHANGES TO APPOINTMENTS

We would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have very kindly donated face masks and visors to the surgery.  We are overwhelmed with such generosity and kindness.  These masks will keep our practice staff and our patients safe.  Thank you.  

4th June 2020---Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have suspended our “walk-in” surgery, and at present we will not be able to offer routine appointments with a GP. This is to reduce chance of transmission of Coronavirus to other patients and staff. Whilst we are unable to offer routine appointments we have remained open throughout the pandemic and are using telephone consultations instead.  We are investing in technology in order to start video consultations. If you feel you need to see or speak to a doctor please phone the surgery on the usual number.  A member of our reception team will take your details and the member of our Practice Team who is best placed to help you will phone you back.  You will be allocated an appointment at the surgery if required.  If given an appointment you will have your temperature checked on arrival and asked to sanitise your hands.  The doctor or nurse treating you will be wearing PPE (apron, face mask and gloves).  Our childhood vaccination clinic and antenatal clinics are running as usual.  Due to the time taken to put on and take off PPE safely and to ensure appropriate social distancing our treatment room capacity has also dropped. We are still performing essential services (for example INR and DMARD monitoring, as well as many others) and are using feedback from our survey to increase availability for chronic disease monitoring. 

We apologise for the inconvenience. We will have extra staff to answer phone calls to try and make this transition as smooth as possible and to reduce the disruption for patients. We will inform you of ongoing changes to appointments through regular updates on the website.

 

We realise this is a worrying and rapidly changing situation and we would appreciate your co-operation.

Do not come to the surgery if you have any symptoms of Coronavirus or have been asked to self isolate as this

9th June 2020-- You can now request a covid 19 test if you have symptoms by phoning 119.
