We are bringing in changes to the way that the practice undertakes appointments with immediate effect in order to minimise the risk of COVID-19 to patients and staff.
- The practice will be strictly reviewing all patient requests - any patient with a pre-booked appointment with a Nurse or HCA will be contacted to be screened before they attend.
- We are only allowing patients to enter the surgery following a telephone triage call by a clinician; they will advise whether you need to come in.
- If needed, we will offer you a face-to-face consultation after the telephone assessment but this is not guaranteed and will be down to individual clinical assessment. All appointments will be at Oaklands Surgery, Birchfield Road until further notice.
- If you have been offered one of these face-to-face consultations please be aware that you will be screened again on arrival. please wait in your car or outside and a clinician will come and collect you as the door will be locked.
Many conditions are able to be safely dealt with during a telephone appointment.
RESCUE PACKS - We are currently not issuing ‘rescue packs’ in the form of just-in-case steroid and antibiotics unless you are known to have severe COPD or severe asthma and have had these before. Currently routine respiratory reviews will not be undertaken face to face but by phone to minimise unnecessary contact.
If you have developed new respiratory symptoms then please follow government advice found on NHS 111 online. https://111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19/

All Patients have a named GP who is responsible for the patients overall care, if you wish to know who your named GP is please contact the surgery. This does not stop you seeing any GP at the practice.
As a practice we want to improve communication with our patients. We want to make sure you can read and understand the information we send you. If you find it hard to read our letters or if you need someone to support you at appointments, please let us know. We want to know if you need information in braille, large print or easy read. We want to know if you need a British Sign Language interpreter or advocate. We want to know if we can support you to lipread or use a hearing aid or communication tool. Please tell the receptionist when you arrive for your next appointment, or call us on 01935 709269 or complete the form under 'Accessibility Information' on the right hand side.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side.
