Welcome to Chevin Medical Practice

Coronavirus: latest information and advice

Dear patient,
The NHS is moving to a new phase in an attempt to protect the most vulnerable members of our community as well as our staff who you will need to provide you with your ongoing healthcare.
 
In line with national guidance:

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (where this absolutely cannot be done from home)
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

DO NOT ENTER ANY SURGERY OR MEDICAL PREMISES IF YOU HAVE A FEVER AND/OR A COUGH.    You must self-isolate for 7 days and information on this is available at https://111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19/.  

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms.

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

We are experiencing high volumes of calls and request that you think before you ring if your problem might be urgent or could be managed by the online advice at NHS111 which covers a host of medical problems and situations.
If you have an existing booking with the surgery this may be changed at short notice to a telephone consultation in the first instance. 
Please use online ordering facilities for medications and be aware that we are not issuing more than the standard quantities and there are no shortages of medications at this time.

Please note, prescriptions are taking longer to process currently so allow an extra day before collecting your medication from the Chemist. 

 

Please be aware we use the Electronic Prescription Service to send prescriptions electronically to local pharmacies. To enable us to process all prescriptions this way, please: 

•nominate a local pharmacy

Important Information

Please be aware we are experiencing a very high volume of calls at 8:00 every morning, especially on a Monday.

If you are calling regarding a routine matter that doesn't require medical attention on the day( Blood tests results, booking routine appointments like GP follow up appointments or annual reviews), please call us after 2pm. If you require medical attention on that day, please wait to talk to Reception.

This way you can help us to direct you to the right person and get medical attention when you need it. Thank you for your understanding.
