Due to COVID-19 we have had to cancel GP-face to face appointments with immediate effect. A clinician will you call you for a telephone consultation instead. We apologise for any inconvenience.
The attached letter is available for you to download as the practice will not be providing a medical certificate for patients requiring self-isolation for coronavirus.
For patients who do not have access to a computer, please contact the Surgery: 01638 741234 to request a copy.
Our Dispensary Service will be closed between 12.00 noon and 15.00 pm, Monday – Friday until further notice.
Our telephone lines will remain open for urgent medical advice.
Due to unprecedented demand, we will be closing between 12.00 noon and 3.00 pm, Monday to Friday in order that we can continue to turnaround repeat prescriptions. Requests for medication has increased by about 50 percent. Please do not order your repeats early or stock-pile medication. Thank you.
Please do not attend the surgery early to pick your repeat prescription up as this will put more pressure on the service.
We are encouraging all those who use our online service to order their medication using this method as a way of helping to minimise patient contact.
The NHS across the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough will be better prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases, if the public follows Public Health England’s advice.
The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of patients and staff which may mean your patient experience is subject to change.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
This includes people of all ages – even if you do not have any symptoms or other health conditions.
You can only leave your home:
- to shop for basic essentials – only when you really need to
- to do one form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with
- for any medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person
- to travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or a hospital IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
- You feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- Your condition gets worse
- Your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
What to do if you have coronavirus symptoms
Continue to stay at home if you have either:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.
Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
