NHS 111 is experiencing very high call volumes.
For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances. These can be accessed at:
PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU HAVE VIRAL SYMPTOMS OF COUGH, HIGH TEMPERATURE AND SHORTNESS OF BREATH AND THINK YOU MAY HAVE CORONAVIRUS, OR HAVE BEEN IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE WHO MAY HAVE IT.
IN ORDER TO LIMIT THE RISK OF SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS WE WILL BE IMPLEMENTING TELEPHONE TRIAGE APPOINTMENTS ONLY. THE DOCTOR WILL TELEPHONE YOU AT THE ALLOCATED TIME, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY UNLESS THE DOCTOR HAS ARRANGED AN APPOINTMENT FOR YOU.
CURRENTLY THE NURSES ARE DOING BABY IMMUNISATIONS, INR BLOOD TESTS, DRESSINGS, REMOVAL OF SUTURES AND SOME BLOOD TESTS.
OUR DISPENSARY IS FULLY STAFFED. THE SURGERY DOORS ARE LOCKED BUT MEDICATION IS BEING HANDED OUT OF THE SURGERY WINDOW AT THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING (THE GOUNCE) OPPOSITE THE LAUNDERETTE.
WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION AND UNDERSTANDING.
The government have launched a new website for patients to use in finding out what help they can get if affected by coronavirus. This service is available to all patients who are seeking advice and guidance on the topics such as:
- feeling unsafe
- going in to work
- paying bills or being unemployed
- getting food
- having somewhere to live
- mental health and wellbeing
We are still here for you - please watch the attached video with a message to all patients
