Information for all of our patients. 

Within the next few weeks, we will be commencing a long awaited and much needed extension to the health centre. This will add a number of consulting rooms to the building, and will also see redevelopment of the waiting room, the reception and the dispensary. This is needed due to the expanse in population, and will be partially funded by NHS England, and partially by the GP Partners. There will be inevitable disruption during the build which we anticipate will last around 6 months. We will try to keep this to an absolute minimum, but ask our patients to please bear with us while we make these essential changes to the building, which will ultimately benefit all. 

Dr Nicola Hulme on behalf of the GP Partners

 Information for the public is available at gov.uk/coronavirus

We are taking further precautions for your and our welfare by closing as of this morning the internal door at the front of The Health Centre. Staff are behind the door answering enquires. This allows us to minimise entry into the building, so reducing risks of infection and allows us to confirm has not got coronavirus symptoms.

 

Coronovirus pandemic and prescriptions

Please note, until advised otherwise by Central the practice will continue to prescribe your usual 28 day supply of medication. Prescribing for excessive periods could result in shortages of some medicines, with serious clinical consequences. Patients who are self-isolating can telephone the practice to order their prescriptions and we can forward them to the dispensary or the pharmacy of their choice.

Dispensary Changes:

Effective from 24/03/20 the Dispensary will close every day 1pm -2pm 

To lessen the footfall into the building for Dispensary Scripts (to lessen risks re Covid -19), we have allocated the following times to collect from the foyer, before you enter the main building:

Surname A-M collect 10:30 am -12 midday

Surname N-Z collect 2:30 pm-4:00 pm.

Please allow 1 weeks notice to make up your prescription.

We alongside other Dispensing GP practices and Community Pharmacies are facing unprecedented demands due to the Covid-19 crisis.

 Non Dispensing patients- advice re collection of prescriptions:

These can be collected 10:30-12 midday or 2:30 pm-4PM.  We are currently closing reception 1-2pm each day as we have very low staffing numbers due to either sickness or staff having to self-isolate due to household sickness being potentially Covid-19 related.  Please accept our apologies , but by taking these actions, we can still answer the phones between 1-2pm.  Paul Carroll, Practice Manager.
