Changes to the way we are working
The surgery has changed the way it is working in line with Government guidelines and has actively reduced the footfall upon the surgery to reduce the risk of patients and our staff contracting the virus. To ensure that we continue in the same manner and comply with guidance, we will actively encourage patients to;
1. Create an account on Engage Consult (see the link and instructions further down the page)
2. Use Engage Consult to request prescriptions, appointments, submit medical request or queries, however' please avoid calling the surgery during 8am -10am and 1:00pm - 2:00pm
3. Nominate your pharmacy on line, alternatively you can call to nominate - this will allow your prescriptions to be electronically dispatched. It will also prevent you calling into the surgery to collect them, unless you need to nominate a pharmacy.
4. If you have an urgent query, then please call the surgery, alternatively you can submit this request via engage consult (please allow up 48 hrs for a response, however there will be periods where we can respond quicker). If you need an appointment, the surgery staff will triage query over the telephone, this is to ensure that you are directed to the correct GP, Nurse Practitioner or clinical staff member.
Staff will continue to triage all queries to ensure that patients receive the correct care, this will be a telephone consultation. video call or F2F appointment. Please ensure that your mobile phone is to hand at all times, as no time slot can be give for a return call from the clinical team.
