Coronavirus Latest Update - 27th March 2020

We have put together the latest Practice information to keep you updated:

27th March 2020 - Practice Changes 

Unfortunately the Practice is now experiencing team shortages within Administrative Team.  With this in mind we have to make changes in order to continue providing safe essential service.

At some point from week beginning Monday 30th March 2020 our Practice GPs will be providing cover with all other Practices manning the new local Covid Centers.  This will also result in a reduction of GPs working and providing triage Services to our patients at the Practice.

In order for us to manage our workload we will only take requests for Prescription between the hours of 09.30am and 12.30pm.  We will also be closing the phone lines from 1pm to 2pm daily.  This will assist us by allowing uninterrupted time to process the vast amounts of Prescription requests we are receiving.  There will be an alternative number available for Emergency purposes.   The best way to order your prescriptions is via our Website or by the Online Ordering System.

We are providing an URGENT ONLY service at the Practice and would ask patients to consider this before contacting reception for non-urgent matters.

 

We thank you for your continuing support to the Practice at this difficult time

Practice Changes

Due increased demand we have adjusted our appointment system from June 2019.  From June, all our routine appointments are available to book online.  You will be able to book well in advance as opposed to booking on the day.  From now our book on the day appointments will be reserved for Urgent issues which cannot wait. For these appointments, you will be asked why you need seen, this is only to enable our team to facilitate your appointment request appropriately. 

We have also had to make changes to our Prescription Service.  We now require 48 hours to process your prescriptions. 

We have had to make these changes due to increase demand, reduced cover but ultimately to ENSURE YOUR SAFETY!
