Covid-19 Shielding Letters

This is not something your GP's can deal with and have been sent out by the government. We cannot provide patients with a letter and cannot deal with individual requests for this.  Patients who have been identified as having an increased risk and should be particularly stringent in following social distancing measures are as follows:

  • Aged 70 or older regardless of other medical condition.
  • Under 70 with an underlying health condition (listed below):
  • Chronic long term respiratory diseases, such as asthma, COPD, emphysema and bronchitis.
  • Chronic heart disease such as heart failure.
  • Chronic kidney disease.
  • Chronic liver disease, such as hepatitis.
  • Chronic neurological conditions, such as Parkinson's Disease, Motor Neurone Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, a learning disability or Cerebral Palsy.
  • Diabetes.
  • Problems with your spleen - for example, sickle cell disease or is you have had your spleen removed.
  • A weakened immune system as the result of conditions such as HIV and AIDS, or medicines such as steroid tablets or chemotherapy.
  • Being seriously overweight with a BMI of 40 or above.
  • Those who are pregnant.

For Sick Notes relating to Covid-19:  Please go to the NHS111 website to download an isolation note.  GP's will not be issuing sick notes for Covid-19.

We have now locked our front doors.  This is due to the high number of patients still coming into surgery and not following current guidelines.  Please read the advice below for further information.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis and unprecedented demands on General Practice, GP’s are having to change the way they work and patients are now being managed over the telephone.

Non-urgent work is being halted or postponed until it is deemed safer to do so.

 

Therefore we are unable to offer any routine appointments at this time. If you have

a face to face pre-booked appointment DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY,

you will be contacted by a clinician and triaged.

 

From now all appointments will be booked as telephone consultations

. Please refrain from entering the surgery unless you have been triaged by our clinical team.

 

Patients who do not use electronic prescribing are asked to go to your local pharmacy

and nominate them to receive your electronic prescription.

 

Please be patient with our staff at this challenging time as they are following clinical guidelines.

Please follow the current guidelines and avoid coming into practice if you have a new onset continuous cough or a high temperature.  This is for the safety of other patients and our staff.

 

 

Appointments

moterh_and_babyYou may consult any of the doctors, nurses or health care assistant as all of them have access to both your computerised and written medical history. We will try to accommodate requests to see a particular health care professional but this is not always possible. You can be seen by appointment which can be made through the receptionists by telephoning 0161 214 8710 or by calling at the practice in person.

If you consider your condition is urgent we have an urgent surgery each morning, which is booked on the same day. This is for urgent cases only and not for long-standing problems. We have more routine appointments available up to two weeks in advance. Due to the great demand for appointments, we ask that you cancel your appointment if you cannot attend.

Appointments are now available to book on line.  You will need to complete a request form at reception and we will send you log on details.

If the doctor you wish to speak to is in surgery and the receptionist cannot assist you, you will be asked to leave your name and telephone number along with a brief summary of your request so that the doctor can call you back after surgery.

Parking Facilities

Unfortunately, the practice doesn’t have a car park; there are limited spaces at the front of the surgery. However, there are pay and display car parks close by.

 

Appointment Booking

We are currently updating the way we release our routine appointments. Instead of releasing a weeks worth of appointments every Friday we are now making full use of our EMIS Web system and releasing them in a more user friendly, organised manner. Appointments will now be released automatically at 2 week, 1 week and 2 day intervals which means that patients will find it easier to access appointments. They are no longer all released on a Friday which will make it easier to get through on the phone as well.

There are several ways to make an appointment:

  • Online - a percentage of our appointments are available to book online.
  • Face to face - come into reception and our receptionists will be happy to make an appointment for you.
  • Telephone - call the surgery on 0161 214 8710 to make an appointment.

**Online appointments. If you book your appointments online and they have all gone, you still have the option to ring reception to see if there are any other appointments available.

Please remember to give us your mobile number (if you have one), you will then get an appointment reminder 24 hours before so you don't forget.
