WE ARE OPEN TO HELP AND SUPPORT OUR PATIENTS

We would like to reassure our patients that we are very much open and here to help. Some parts of the practice are operating as normal. Such as cervical smears, childhood immunisations and referrals. We are offering on-line access to a proportion of our appointments. These are bookable if you have signed up for online services. Face to face appointments with the Doctor are based on an assessment of your clinical need following a telephone consultation with the clinician.

Covid Vaccination Certification

The Surgery are unable to issue your COVID vaccination certification. Please see the following link for further information.

Proof of your vaccination status will be available on the NHS app, which is also valuable for accessing your health records and ordering repeat prescriptions.

The NHS app can be downloaded from https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/nhs-app/id1388411277 for iPhone or https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhs.online.nhsonline for android.

Alternatively you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17th May 2021) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. The letter may take up to 5 days to reach you. Thank you.

Coronavirus – Awareness

A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China.

If you think you may have symptoms then please contact NHS 111.  Do not visit your GP practice or Emergency Department as this could possibly spread the virus if you are infected.

Advice for Parents

Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing for parents to know what they should do when their child is unwell or injured. The poster and video below remind them that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done, and gives them some helpful guidance about when and where to get help. It is important to emphasise to parents what they need to do should their child become unwell.
This poster advices parents and carers what to do when a child is unwell/injured, when to seek help and advice and which service to contact, it has been approved by NHSE/I for dissemination.https://www.rcpch.ac.uk/sites/default/files/2020-04/covid19_advice_for_parents_when_child_unwell_or_injured_poster.pdf

This video produced locally by two clinicians, and approved by NHSE/I, informs parents of the services available and when to seek help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5Mgm1cmptw&feature=youtu.be
