Home Visits 

Please remember in this busy time that home visits must be requested before 11am. All visits will be triaged by telephone by a GP to assess if a visit is needed. Please be aware a GP may advise you require hospital admission without seeing you in line with current Coronavirus guidelines.


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, if you wish to wear a face covering then you are more than welcome to do so 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 our online access to order prescriptions enabling patients to order at a time that is convenient for them. Alternatively prescriptions can be ordered via telephone between the hours of 10.00am and 12noon Monday- Friday. 


If you need help when we are closed, please call the surgery number and you will be given details of our out of hours service. You may also call 111, the free NHS non-emergency number or visit the walk in centre on Broad Lane.
