FLU CLINICS 2020-21
Due to COVID 19 we have been asked by NHS England to deliver our Seasonal Flu Clinic to the 50-64 year age group in a safe environment for our Patients and staff.
To help us to deliver this clinic safely, following NHS England Guidance on social distancing, the clinic will be held at various points around the building. You will be able to step inside to have your vaccination but queuing will be outside of the Practice building, but within the Practice Premises.
We would like to ask patients travelling to the flu clinics to arrive on foot, however, we appreciate that this is not possible for all. IT IS IMPORTANT ON THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT TO ONLY ARRIVE AT YOUR DESIGNATED TIME, DUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING AND ALSO PARKING WILL BE LIMITED AROUND THE SURGERY.
Patients will be informed at the time of booking an appointment which line they will need to be at, i.e,, Position ‘A’, ‘B’, etc. PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF THIS as this is the information that the clinician will have to enable them to give you your flu jab. If you join the wrong line you will be asked to join the correct line.
We kindly ask patients to come with their arm prepared and in clothes that are able to slide off the shoulder to limit the amount of time your appointment will take.
We thank you for your cooperation during these unprecedented times.
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.
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, we would appreciate it 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.
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.
