IT ISSUES

We are happy to announce that BT reports the national issue has been resolved.  We would like to thank all our patients for their patience during the last few hours.  We will be open from 8am tomorrow as normal

NHS TEST AND TRACE SERVICE

We are aware that patients are receiving phone calls or texts from numbers purporting to be the NHS test and trace service. 

The NHS test and trace number is:  0300 013 5000

The NHS test and trace text details will show as: 'NHStracing'

If you have any concerns or want to find out more about NHS Test and Trace please check out this document:

NHS Test and Trace scam alert


CORONAVIRUS

We are concerned that patients may be delaying contacting us with medical problems as they feel they may be ‘bothering’ during this pandemic.  This is not the case - please contact us as usual so that we can give you advice and arrange any necessary investigations 

All requests for appointments are being triaged and, in order to protect both staff and patients, where possible will be dealt with over the phone.  We have a video consultation facility that can be used for some patients. If you need to be seen face-to-face then this will be arranged.  

ONLY PATIENTS WHO HAVE PRE-ARRANGED APPOINTMENTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE BUILDING

IF YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT PLEASE PRESS THE BELL BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM OF THE INTERCOM TO THE RIGHT OF THE DOOR.  IF IT IS CONFIRMED THAT YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT YOU WILL BE MANUALLY ADMITTED.  WHERE POSSIBLE PLEASE COME ALONE

We are restricting the number of patients coming to the Health Centre and if your blood test is deemed to be necessary you may be seen in your car.  However, if you or a member of your household have any of the symptoms listed below please phone the Surgery so that we can make alternative arrangements.

PLEASE STAY ALERT

OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION

Urgent advice: Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

ONLY CALL 111 IF YOU CANNOT GET HELP ONLINE

Continue with the following precautions:

  1. Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.
  2. To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.
  3. Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.
