Noticeboard

Coronavirus update

As of Monday 16th March 2020

 

Due to the current CORONAVIRUS pandemic, for the safety of all our patients and staff and to reduce the risk of onward transmission, we will not be booking any face to face appointments directly without our doctors consulting with you first.

 

We request that you make contact with the practice via econsult through our website. If this is not possible for you, please call the practice to book a telephone appointment; the doctor will decide upon whether you need to attend the surgery and you will be booked in accordingly.

 

This will be the situation for the foreseeable future, and only patients with booked appointments should be attending the surgery.

Welcome to Ross Road Medical Centre

Update - If you have a booked appointment at the surgery you will be required to wear a face covering, this doesn't need to be a mask, it can be something simple like a scarf or wrap.  If you attend without a face mask you will not be able to enter the practice.

Important information patients about GP appointments

As you will be are aware, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a new illness that is spreading across the UK. As such, Ross Road Medical Centre are taking actions to protect our patients, our staff and our community by introducing a new telephone triage system for GP appointments. Our aim is to significantly reduce the footfall through our surgery in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, in line with national guidance.

All GP appointments will initially be on the telephone. If you have an appointment booked with a GP, please do not come to the surgery – please stay at home and the doctor will call you at the allocated time. The GP will do all they can to help you over the phone – however, should they feel the need to see you face to face for an examination, you will be invited to the surgery for review.

Nursing appointments will continue as planned but we ask you to consider the national guidance before visiting the practice https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

a high temperature

a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

your condition gets worse

your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
