Coronavirus Update

Appointments

When you call to make an appointment with a GP or nurse we will first of all ask you to tell us why you need medical help. This will help us decide how best to help you.  Please do not contact the practice for medical help linked to coronavirus. Follow the advice above.

We will initially arrange for a GP to call you back over the phone to assess your needs. If they can, the GP will provide you with advice there and then. If you need a further consultation, you will be that will be booked in for you.

Wherever possible, this consultation will be over the phone or by video if you have the equipment to be able to do this.

We may offer you an appointment at the surgery but we will only do this if we think that you need to see or speak to a doctor or nurse in person, and we are sure that there is no risk to patients or staff.

 

Online services

Please do use online services, including:

  • Booking some appointments
  • Ordering repeat prescriptions – please only order what you need
  • Checking you medical record if this has been enabled

You can register for the NHS app  (https://www.nhs.uk/apps-library/nhs-app) to be able to request prescriptions and look at test results. The identification process can occur completely online and you do not need to come into the surgery to do this.

 

Prescriptions

We will send all prescriptions, including repeat prescriptions, through the electronic prescription service (EPS) to your nominated pharmacy. If you do not have a nominated pharmacy we can set this up for you. We are no longer producing paper prescriptions to avoid the need for collection at the surgery. We are also now taking prescription requests via telephone or requests can be posted through the letterbox.

 

Home deliveries

Please be aware that home deliveries by community pharmacy is not an NHS funded service. Some pharmacies do offer a delivery service which you may be charged for.
