PATIENT NOTICE (18TH March 2020)
Practice Operations- Coronavirus
We are committed at this time to continuing to keep our services running and like other Primary Care services we are moving to a telephone triage system for appointments. This is to protect you, vulnerable patients, our staff and to limit the spread of Coronavirus. Patients will have received text messages already providing your details are up to date.
If you had a routine appointment booked please do not attend until told to do so – we will contact you by phone. You will receive SMS instructions closer to the time.
We are dispensing medication as normal for our patients. We will give normal quantities of repeat medications.
Wherever possible, order online. You can register using the NHS app without visiting us.
People who are well, or their representatives can pick up medicines as normal from our receptions which remain open.
Transient social contact such as picking up medication, going out for a walk, and getting basic provisions is currently permitted for those socially isolating who are not ill or contacts.
We are under strict instructions from the Government and our supply chains, to not alter our medication/prescribing patterns as this creates more demand and causes shortages. The UK pharmaceutical supply chain is working well and we are under an obligation not to make this worse or make exceptions.
Our reception teams are experiencing a surge in requests for increases in medications, we would ask you not to do this and for your co-operation. Medication processing may take longer due to extremely high demand -please be patient. Our PPG group have been working hard behind the scenes and have now put in place a volunteer group to help support those in need, this includes delivering medications which will be great asset to the practice and community.
If you do require help please contact your Surgery and the reception team can take your details and pass those on so that the support can be set up for you.
Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
