As per government guidance we will be moving to a telephone triage service from Monday (16th March).

You may find it more convenient to submit an E-consult via our website www.whinfieldsurgery.nhs.uk. You will receive a response from a clinician within 48 hours.

 If your problem is more urgent please contact the surgery and a telephone triage appointment will be arranged. If the clinician feels you need to be seen, please be reassured that a face to face appointment will be made.

 

PLEASE NOTE-  AS FROM MONDAY 15TH JUNE 2020:

 

If you are asked to attend the practice by your Doctor or Nurse, please remember you should attend alone . Due to the constraints of the waiting room  and 2 metre rule anyone attending with you will be asked to leave the surgery. If you have mobility issues etc , please let the receptionist or Doctor know at the time of booking the appointment.

 

If you are coming to the surgery for an appointment you MUST wear a face covering, If you do not have a face covering you will be asked to re-arrange your appointment. This does not need to be a surgical mask. It can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head. It must cover your nose and mouth whilst allowing you to breathe comfortably.

Your health and safety is important. Thankyou

 

 

Covid-19 – The compulsory wearing of face covering in shops

 
The introduction of the requirement for people to wear face covering in shops is intended to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
 
There are certain groups of people who are exempt from this requirement and they include:

  • children under the age of 11,
  • people with disabilities 
  • those with breathing difficulties or
  • those who are travelling with someone who relies on lip reading.

These groups of people, their parents or guardians are able to indicate the reason, if required, as to why they are not wearing a face covering.
 
General practice is under considerable pressure as a direct result of the current challenges they are faced with delivering a service to patients at the same time as coping with the consequences of this virus. 
 
There is no requirement for general practice to issue letters for patients who are unable to wear face coverings, as the Government have clearly defined the exemptions to this requirement.

 

Out of Surgery Hours
If you require urgent medical care out side of surgery hours please call 111. Calls to this number are free
