Coronavirus



IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS


Rawnsley Surgery has implemented the following measures in response to guidance issued by NHS England and Public Helath England.



As of 17th March we are moving to a phone first model. 


You will not be able to walk directly into the surgery. 



All face to face appointments have been suspended.  If you already have an existing appointment booked with us, this will now be a telephone consultation and the GP/ Advanced Nurse Practitioner will contact you.  We will still be completing some urgent and/or important planned care but this will be organised at certain times of day and only if during a telephone consultation a clinician decides that you need to be seen. 



You may find the dedicated 111 coronavirus site a useful source of information https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19



All patients contacting us with cough, fever, or cold like symptoms, will be triaged, and may be directed to use the 111 symptom tracker (online) service.  You should only seek advice if you are unable to manage your symptoms at home. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HOME.


If you are worried about the virus, you can read the latest public health guidance HERE - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public





Self-care and Prescriptions



Please help us where you can by self caring for all minor injuries and illnesses and visiting https://www.nhs.uk/ for information. This site also gives you access to an online service.



Prescription services are not affected EXCEPT that we aim to process 100% electronically, so we will ask you to nominate a pharmacy if you haven't already. 



Early Prescriptions and additional medications will not be given, so please wait until your next batch is due
