TO ALL OUR PATIENTS
We are aware of the planned move to lifting the remaining Covid restrictions in England from the 19th of July.
Medical settings are a higher risk environment and will need to be subject to more control measures than other public facilities.
We are acting very cautiously and are maintaining:
The delta variant is more transmissible and patients may come to the surgery when they are contagious.
It is our duty to do all we can to keep both our patients and our staff safe whilst we deliver our care.
💉 COVID VACCINATION UPDATE - NON-RESPONDERS 💉
There are approximately 1000 patients who have not yet received their first vaccination and 500 patients who have not yet received their second vaccination despite having been contacted by text, phone call or letter.
Your vaccine is still waiting for you so please call us on our dedicated COVID booking line (07708687074) to book your appointment. Phones are manned between 9am and 4pm. Please also let us know if you wish to decline your vaccine so that we can update your records.
If you do not have on-line access for prescription requests, please download the NHS App. Alternatively you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Prescriptions will be sent to a Nominated Pharmacy, please contact the Practice by telephone if you have not Nominated a Pharmacy.
ECONSULTS WILL BE UNAVAILABLE OVER THE WEEKEND AND BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 6.30PM TO 6.30AM
We will be switching eConsults off every weekend and weekday evening, while the surgery is closed. You will be unable to send an eConsult from 6.30pm on a Friday until 12.01am on a Monday morning and from 6.30pm until 6.30am on weekdays.
This is to ensure that our patients seek more appropriate healthcare whilst we are closed.
You can use the eConsult facility to look up general medical advice. You can also get advice from the NHS website or the NHS App. Your local Pharmacist can help you with self-care.
If your medical problem cannot wait until the surgery is open please visit the NHS111 website or call NHS111.
