Practice Policy Changes
PLEASE DON’T VISIT THE PRACTICE WITHOUT CALLING AHEAD FIRST
As you know, circulating levels of Covid are improving. We are still operating a reduced capacity in our waiting room to reduce infection risk.
Please do not attend the surgery without prior arrangement if you have respiratory symptoms
We will continue to triage all appointment requests for your safety, and the safety of other patients and staff.
We have instructed staff to ask ALL patients requesting appointments about respiratory symptoms.
For the good of yourself, your family and community, please be co-operative with this,
and do not attend if you may be a risk for others.
- Please do not attend before your appointment time, and notify reception when you arrive.
- If the waiting room is busy, consider waiting in the car until the doctor is available.
- Wear a face mask please.
Specific Covid-19 queries
- If you are concerned that you may be suffering from Covid-19 or that you need testing, phone (but do not attend) the surgery.
Please understand that our phone lines have been extremely busy – we are trying our best!
- Most people now only need to do Antigen tests, however eligible patients may now book Covid PCR tests for yourself.
You will receive an appointment by text.
- While you are awaiting for us to contact you, please self-isolate at home to help slow the spread of the virus.
- If your symptoms worsen while you’re awaiting testing, please telephone us so we can further evaluate your status.
We now offer a secure online ordering system for repeat prescriptions. This service is for our patients’ regular authorised repeat medications.
Ideally it should not be used for occasionally required medications. If you have any queries about this, please discuss with your doctor.
To order a repeat prescription online through our portal, you must first register as a portal user.
Visit our Patient Portal
Our aim is to encourage patients to use our Secure Portal rather than the use of email prescription requests.
We will send all prescriptions to pharmacies by secure email. This reduces the time you need to spend in either the practice or the pharmacy. Please notify us of your preferred pharmacy for this service
The practice is now using electronic certification for social welfare certificates. You do not always need to attend the practice but may require a telephone consultation.
Private medical certificates my be returned through our portal to registered patients or by email.
Thank you for your co-operation and understanding. These changes will help reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus infection, while allowing us to deliver medical services to you!
