Face to face appointment – face covering
Please wear a face covering to the surgery, at the surgery, and during your consultation, as this is in line with government advice about face covering in public spaces where social distancing is difficult A cloth face covering should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably. It can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.
TO ALL OUR PATIENTS
THESE ARE UNPRECEDENTED AND DIFFICULT TIMES
YOU MUST TAKE COVID-19 SERIOUSLY
IT COULD KILL YOU!
Myself, My Fellow Partners and ALL Our Staff are working incredibly hard to continue to provide a level of service to all our patients.
But we need patients to start taking this situation seriously!
PLEASE follow government advice, to protect everyone and HELP stop the spread of this deadly disease.
DO NOT ATTEND SURGERY UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN INFORMED TO DO SO!
If you have booked an appointment and have been informed to attend the surgery, where possible you should attend alone. Please use the hand sanitiser by the door before entering the building. Only come at your appointment time and remember social distancing at all times.
WHERE POSSIBLE PATIENTS SHOULD ORDER THEIR MEDICATION THROUGH SYSTMONLINE or the NHS APP.
If you do not have SystmOnline then medication can be ordered via the telephone.
PLEASE BE ADVISED WE WILL NOT BE ISSUING RESCUE MEDICATION OR SICK NOTES FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SELF ISOLATING.
FINALLY AS I HAVE ALREADY SAID OUR STAFF ARE WORKING INCREDIBLY HARD, WE ARE PUTTING OURSELVES AT RISK DAILY TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A SERVICE.
IF IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO GET THROUGH ON THE TELEPHONE PLEASE HAVE SOME PATIENCE, TELEPHONES ARE BEING ANSWERED AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE JUST TRY AGAIN LATER.
DO NOT ABUSE OUR STAFF
You’re co-operation is vital in order to get through this.
