Corona Virus the advice to patients and the public
In accordance with Public Health England guidelines to prevent potential transmission of infection to other patients and staff,Monkfield Medical Practice is no longer offering routine face to face appointments for a minimum of 6-8weeks. If you have a booked appointment, we will be contacting you to amend accordingly. Only those non-routine appointments will be booked and will initially be a telephone consultation.
Nurse appointments that are considered clinically urgent will be reviewed on a case by case basis and be offered an appointment if the need is immediate.
In order to identify potential risk, you will be asked about the nature of the illness and the reason for the appointment.
If you have flu-like symptoms – high temperature or persistent cough, please stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days. For further information please visit www.111.nhs/ukcovid-19
Our doors are currently closed
Further to recent advice the Practice has now closed its doors and will only allow patients into the practice if you have a pre-arranged appointment to do so.
We will be using the Morrisons side entrance and we ask that you space out in line with guidance if there is more than one patient waiting.
We are asking all prescription requests to be made on line, or email email@example.com and will be asking all to be sent electronically.
There are notices up and the practice continues to be contactable on 01954 282 153, or our general email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We very much appreciate the importance of the shielding letters and we are expecting updated guidance for general practice in the next 5-7 days.
Although the gov.uk site and TV/media are directing patients to their GP, as it stands today we are not able to add patients to the shielded list. All patients included in the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) defined cohort that could be identified through centrally available data are now flagged on GP systems and have... received a letter; however centrally available data was limited and NHS Digital are now updating the original cohort to identify additional patients based on GP extracted data.
Whilst there may still be other patients, that GPs consider to be in the highest risk category and who should be advised to shield, they have asked that we do not run searches to identify these cohorts at this stage. We are advised that NHS Digital will be in touch this week to confirm how this process can be streamlined for GPs and we stand by to action as swiftly as we can.
