RE-OPENING OF CHAPELTOWN

You will be pleased to know we are planning to reopen our Chapeltown branch on the 8th June. We ask that patients still stay at home if at all possible and only attend the surgery if they have a pre-booked appointment. All appointments with a GP will remain only bookable via a telephone triage appointment. If the GP triaging feels your symptoms indicate that you may have Coronavirus and need to be seen these appointments will still be at our Elm Lane Branch. Due to staffing levels there will be no GP at Chapeltown on a Tuesday afternoon. We reserve the right to move all services back to our Elm Lane branch if staffing levels dictate. Thank you for your continuing co-operation during these difficult times.


FACE MASKS AND COVERINGS FOR ATTENDING THE PRACTICE

We are doing everything we can to protect patients and staff. There is evidence that wearing a face covering may help stop a person infected with covid-19 from spreading the virus further. Therefore, it would be appreciated if our patients would wear a face covering when attending the practice. This can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head. Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 2 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly- for example, those with respiratory conditions.


Prescriptions

During the coronavirus pandemic we are changing the way we take prescription requests. We ask that any patient, who is able, signs up for online access to order prescriptions, enabling patients to order at a time that is convenient for them. Alternatively prescriptions can be ordered via the telephone between the hours of 10am and 12noon, Monday-Friday.
