Further update this morning:
It has been confirmed the surgery will remain open on Good Friday and Easter Monday in line with the rest of the NHS to try and reduce ever growing pressures for 111 and the emergency services, please keep in mind we need to deal with the acutely ill patients at this time and those who are extremely vulnerable.
All B12 appointments will now be cancelled from today with the exception of those diagnosed with Crohns disease, diabetics and those with pernicious anemia (please contact the surgery if you have been diagnosed with any of these and receive B12 injections). Unfortunately we wont have time to contact everyone so if you have an appointment please don’t attend, we cant book anything in for the future at the moment so perhaps contact the surgery at the end of April.
The Clinicians are working to identify the patients currently having INR bloods to be put on alternative medication where appropriate. You will be contacted regarding this. If you have an INR appointment in place already please attend until told other wise, we must stress this will not be suitable for all patients so please continue to contact the practice as normal.
Depo injections will also no longer be available, these patients will be identified and changed to progesterone only pill where appropriate. You will be changed as you contact for your injection.
The above measures are to reduce risk even further, as im sure you have heard on the media they are expecting a peak with covid-19 over the Easter period. We cannot stress enough the importance of adhering to the measures in place by the government to keep everyone safe. There is no need to panic about medication as we will not be closed so please everyone be sensible and continue to order as you have been previously.
All GP appointments are being changed automatically to telephone calls, even if you get a reminder, it will be a telephone call so don’t turn up to the surgery. If your appointment is for a routine review or something that can wait, please email us or ring to cancel. Again, we cannot get in contact with every patient to advise your appointment has been changed to a telephone call.
We really appreciate everyone’s support over the last few weeks, and if anyone is struggling please get in touch and let us know so we can arrange some help for them.
