Access to the surgery is purpose built to facilitate patients in wheelchairs. There is also a ground floor toilet suitable for disabled persons.  However, prams and pushchairs can cause obstruction and so we ask you to leave these items outside when you call in to the surgery. There is a bar that you can lock your pushchair to.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time - SO PLEASE WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

  • • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

You can find the latest information and advice from Public Health England at Further information is available on nhs.uk.

UPDATED ADVICE 4.3.20

We are concerned that patients seeking information on coronavirus are being directed to call 111 rather than use NHS 111 online.  NHS 111 is experiencing very high call volumes.

When directing patients to general information on coronavirus, including in your social media messaging, please use this url:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
  
For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.  These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19

 

Patient Participation Group

The practice has a well established Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Zero Tolerance

This practice operates a 'Zero Tolerance’ policy.

In line with NHS Guidelines, the practice may remove a patient from the list if threatening or violent behaviour occurs.

    Care Navigation for Patients

    Later on this year, Care Navigation will be delivered by our Receptionists for our patients. Our receptionists will have to ask you more about your illness or condition and then will navigate the patient to the best service. Seeing a Doctor is not always the best answer. Please do not be offended if the receptionists ask about your health - they are only doing their job. Please be patient at this time, and help us give you a better service.
