Noticeboard

Coronavirus

We will not be opening up routine face to face appointments from 30th March onwards for GPs, Advanced Nurse Practioner or Nurse. We will provide an on-the-day service and would ask patients to phone in on the day should they need to be seen urgently . We will be offering more telephone consultations and will see patients who need a face to face appointment having gathered some initial information. This is to enable us to plan ahead and assess the situation as it develops in the UK.  We will not be offering online bookings until further notice. Please be patient when contacting us by phone and continue to select Option 5 - we have seen a significant  increase in calls already so please be aware it may take longer than usual to get through to us.

If you have already have a booked appointment please contact the Health Centre so this can be changed to a telephone consultation. If it is still felt to be essential to see you in the surgery, a further appointment will be made.

Think you may have a urinary tract infection? If you are female and between the ages of 18 and 65 then you can go to your Pharmacy for treatment without an appointment. There is no need to take a sample and they can prescribe a course of antibiotics just like the GP.  Patients contacting the surgery may be directed to Pharmacy rather than treated here.  Please note this is not suitable for those who are allergic to Trimethoprim  or have recurrent symptoms - Pharmacy First!

Please note the community pharmacies are experiencing unprecedented numbers of prescription requests and staff absences as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and as such it may take up to 7 days to process prescription requests.  Please allow sufficient time for the medications you need and don't order anything you do not require.

 

 

 

 

 

Samples

Please can any samples requested by the Doctor or Nurse be handed in to the surgery reception by 1pm at the latest.  This is to ensure they can be tested either here or at the laboratory in a timely manner.  If you are female and under the age of 65 you can go direct to the Pharmacy if you suspect you have a urinary tract infection.  In most circumstances they can provide treatment for uncomplicated uti's.  This is often quicker and more convenient than waiting to see the GP.

Lab Results

Lab ResultsPlease phone after 2.00pm for your results.    Your call will be dealt with in strictest confidence by the Reception staff who, acting on your Doctor’s instructions, will advise you if you need to make an appointment to see the doctor.

Please be aware that we can only give results to the patient concerned as we are bound by very strict rules of confidentiality.  

It is important that you tell the Receptionist how many tests you have had taken so that we can ensure that we check for all results.    The phlebotomist will give you an information sheet with the tests that you have had on it when you have your blood taken.

Please note that it is not possible for us to undertake to contact all patients with their blood results.  We are therefore grateful for your co-operation in contacting us to receive your results.
