Coronavirus Virus.

Please visit the following web site for up to date information:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ or https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19 

These are direct links to NHS 111

All travellers who develop relevant symptoms ( for example respiratory symptoms, shortness of breath, cough, fever) however mild, within 14 days of returning or transitioning from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau should not attend the practice, but should remain at home and immediately call NHS 111 for advice.

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The current risk to the general public is moderate.

You can help too. Germs can live on some surfaces for hours. To protect yourself and others:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
  • Bin the tissue, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
  • If you have arrived back from an affected area within the last 14 days and develop symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, you should immediately:
  • Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
  • Call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country

This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including Coronavirus.

More information, including a list of the affected areas is available by logging onto gov.uk/coronavirus

Repill_bottlepeat Prescriptions

If you and your doctor decide that you may obtain repeat prescriptions for long term medication, you will be given a repeat prescription request list. Please tick the items you need and bring /post /fax the list to the surgery. Requests cannot be accepted over the telephone.

You can also leave the list with the village chemist who collects new prescriptions from the surgery once a day, and delivers request slips to us. If you do not have a repeat list, please request repeat prescriptions in writing to save possible errors and to avoid blocking telephone lines.

Requests may be handed to the receptionist, placed in the repeat prescription post box in the surgery (behind the front door, in the hallway), or posted through the main letter box. 

Please allow 48 hours to supply a repeat prescription, and 2 working days to collect your medicines from the chemist. So please order in good time. Medicines can be collected at any time that the practice is open.

If you wish we can post prescriptions (but not medicines) to you, but we would ask you to supply a SAE with your request.

On-line We now use systmonline for ordering repeat prescriptions online. Before you can use this service please visit reception to register for this service and advise them where you would like to collect your prescriptions from.  Proof of ID will be required, and a letter of consent if you are wishing to register a family member or friend for this service.

 If you have already registered and wish to login, please click the "order your prescription on-line" tab above.
