Dear patients,

As you will be aware there is a current crisis with the coronavirus pandemic. The local medical committee and NHS England have been constantly changing advice as this virus has spread. As of 16th of March 2020, there will be no face to face appointments with any clinicians that will be bookable either online or by phoning reception. All issues will be triaged by phone by clinicians and then they will decide if you need to be seen in person in the surgery. There will be a strict policy of restricting the entry of patients in and out of the building. This is going to be the case till further notice.


Unfortunately there will be no drop in clinic until further notice.

 

This is with the aim of reducing and slowing the spread, and you will find that local surgeries are following a similar protocol.

 

Where possible we will send your prescription electronically to a chemist, so please inform us of your choice of chemist. We can take prescription requests by email, via the waiting room or the NHS App. Our email address is:

NHS App - now with EPS nomination functionality

The NHS App team at NHS Digital have been working on this development for some time, but its release has been prioritised to help patients and primary care teams better cope with ordering and obtaining prescriptions during the pandemic.

Instructions of how to download and use the App can be found at: https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/the-nhs-app/ and https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/the-nhs-app/help/

You will be able to order your repeat prescriptions and also nominate a local pharmacy for Electronic Prescription Services.

The terms of use section https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/the-nhs-app/terms/ may provide further information.

 

PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL FOR ADVICE – PLEASE TELEPHONE THE SURGERY

 

This is likely to affect hospital appointments, with routine appointments being postponed as this develops. Please be aware of this, that we are unlikely to be able to ask to expedite appointments unless they are of an urgent nature.

 

Finally, if you think you have the coronavirus, please go to the NHS 111 website for the latest guidance.

 

Please click the COVID-19 Links tab on the left hand menu for helpful links

 

Please help us so that we can continue to help all of you through this difficult time.

 

How to get an isolation note for your employer

This service, at nhs.uk, is for those who have been told to stay at home because of coronavirus and you need a note for your employer.

This service is only for people who:

  • have symptoms of coronavirus and have used the 111 online coronavirus service
  • have been told by a healthcare professional they have symptoms of coronavirus
  • live with someone who has symptoms of coronavirus

If you are not sure if you need to stay at home, get the latest NHS advice on coronavirus.

If you have to stay at home but feel well enough to work, ask your employer if you can work from home. If you can work from home, you will not need an isolation note.

You can also use this service for someone else.

Get an isolation note.
