PRACTICE RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19) PANDEMIC

As the nation moves into the next stage of COVID 19 restrictions on the 19th July 2021 we ask for your continued patience and understanding during these unprecedented pressures on the NHS.


WE ASK THAT ALL APPOINTMENTS ARE BOOKED BY TELEPHONE OR USING THE ONLINE APPOINTMENT BOOKING SERVICE

(Please do not come to the surgery to request an appointment)


YOU CAN BOOK ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS IN ADVANCE. WE WILL CONTINUE TO OFFER A COMBINATION OF FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS ALONG WITH CONSULTATIONS BY TELEPHONE OR VIDEO LINK WHERE APPROPRIATE

(Please only request a face to face appointment if you feel your appointment can not be managed by telephone)


WHEN BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT THE RECEPTION STAFF WILL ASK YOU THE REASON FOR REQUESTING AN APPOINTMENT

(This is to ensure that we can deal with your request accordingly and in a timely manner, this only needs to be a brief outline of the reason)


WE HAVE SET UP A DOCTOR-LED TRIAGE SYSTEM WHICH WILL BE IN EFFECT ON A DAILY BASIS FOR BOOK ON THE DAY APPOINTMENTS

(All book on the day appointments will be triaged by telephone by one of our doctors and you will be offered a face to face appointment if clinically necessary)


ALL OUR CLINICIANS WILL BE WEARING PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) WHEN YOU ARE SEEN IN THE SURGERY
(To limit the number of patients in the surgery and enable us to maintain social distancing, please only attend your own appointment, unless agreed with one of our clinicians)


ALL PRESCRIPTIONS WILL NOW ONLY BE ISSUED ELECTRONICALLY & SENT TO YOUR NOMINATED PHARMACY

(Please do not come in to the surgery to request or collect a paper prescription. If you have not yet registered a nominated pharmacy please contact your local pharmacist)


THE PRACTICE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE PROCESSES IN PLACE TO ENSURE CHILDHOOD IMMUNISATIONS AND OTHER ESSENTIAL CARE CONTINUES

(This includes childhood immunisations and health screening such as cervical smears)


IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING FACE MASKS IN PRIMARY CARE

NHS England and Public Health England have issued advice that the use of face masks and social distancing measures should continue across all healthcare settings following the planned changes to the national COVID-19 restrictions on 19th July 2021.

Whilst it will no longer be a legal requirement, we ask that you continue to wear a face covering or mask when attending your appointment.

Many thanks for your continued support and understanding.
