Your local NHS is seeking your views about the best times and locations for GP (doctor) and nurse appointments in the evenings and weekends.
Nationally the NHS has asked local practices to review the times to provide appointments at evenings and weekends. We want to capture information to support decision-making and make sure we are providing times, and locations that meet the needs of local people.
We are holding a webinar on the 11th July at 7pm to obtain the thoughts of our patients. Please click the following link to register for the event. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/377165330657
New online consultation service launching on 8th July 2022
We’re pleased to announce that we will be launching a new online consultation tool called PATCHS at our GP practice on 8th July 2022. We have selected PATCHS to take the place of our current online consultation service to improve the experience for our patients.
The new online consultation service offers a secure, simple and flexible way for patients and carers to contact their GP practice - it will not replace face to face appointments, it is in addition to routine contact with Practices. This should not be used for emergencies when you should contact 999 or visit A&E.
By registering you will have easy access to a range of services from your computer or smartphone, including:
- reporting symptoms to your GP
- booking virtual appointments
- accessing health advice
To request repeat prescriptions, you should continue to follow the current process we have in place.
You can register via the link on our website homepage once we go live.
All you will need to do is provide an email address and set up a password.
For more information on PATCHS you can visit their website.
IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE
The surgery is open and it is possible to access help from the GP online, over the phone and face to face.
Face to face appointments are available when required. Telephone and Video Consultations are also available.
All appointment requests for GP's may be triaged first via a GP and face to face appointments organised where appropriate.
Nursing appointments are available as per usual for smears, immunizations, dressings
The practice team is working hard to ensure that they can see patients in a safe environment when they do require a face to face appointment
To minimise risks of covid infection to patients and staff and in line with social distancing guidelines you may be asked to wait outside the surgery premises.
- We encourage you to order repeat prescriptions via on-line access or by email (HILLCCG.email@example.com) . If you have no other option, we will allow you to make requests over the telephone. Please try to avoid bringing paper requests to the surgery in order to reduce your need to leave home. the vast majority of prescriptions will be sent electronically to a pharmacist of your choice.
If you are unwell with a sore throat fever, cough or loss of smell or you believe that you may be exposed to somebody who has coronavirus---PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY OR ATTEND THE SURGERY-- YOU MUST STAY AT HOME AND SELF-ISOLATE. You can also contact 111 ONLINE for further initial advice including for covid-19 tests. We urge you to get tested. You can ring 119 to organise a covid-19 test.
If you need to be examined for any respiratory symptoms which could be due to covid-19 infection the surgery may refer you to hospital.
If you are self isolating as per Government advice you do not need a medical certificate. If your employer asks you for one please DOWNLOAD this letter which explains the situation to your employer. You can fill out the dates and reason for not attending work.
