Where to get help for domestic abuse during coronavirus

 

Coronavirus Update 19th March 2020: Practice staffing has been affected by the impact of COVID-19; both self-isolation and the need to protect high risk members of staff. We will therefore only focus on urgent patient need.

 

It is important that patients work with us to protect the NHS, not just for unwell patients with COVID-19 but all other urgent conditions e.g. chronic heart conditions, cancer care.

  • DO think before ringing; We do not have the capacity to field minor queries for well patients.
  1. DO NOT use services unless absolutely necessary
  2. DO NOT request Med3s / reports / Holiday Cancellation Letters for COVID-19
  3. YOU MUST follow self-isolation/social distancing guidance
  4. DO use Electronic Prescribing Service to order NORMAL QUANTITIES of repeat medications
  5. DO be patient with all staff – everyone is doing their bit and working flat out

Your understanding at this difficult time for all of us is appreciated.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 16th March 2020: Due to the latest Government Coronavirus guidelines, from Monday 16th of March you will not be able to directly book an appointment to come in to see the doctor. Admin staff have been instructed to take details of why you feel an appointment is necessary and book a telephone call with the doctor. The doctor will then decide if you need to attend the surgery or if your problem can be dealt with over the phone. This is keep you and our staff safe.

Your understanding at this difficult time for all of us is appreciated.
