Albert Road Surgery

CHANGES TO OUR APPOINTMENTS FROM MONDAY 16TH MARCH 2020 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Due to the rapidly changing COVID-19 or Coronavirus pandemic, we are following national guidance and changing the way we operate until further notice. Any patients who have had contact with someone confirmed as having COVID-19 OR if you have travelled to or returned from one of the high risk countries within the last 14 days with a fever, cough or respiratory illness MUST phone 111.

All patients must self-isolate if you have either:-

A high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back.

You have a new continuous cough.

NO testing will occur here, so please DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY if you think you are affected as this puts both other patients and our staff at risk.

From Monday 16th March ALL patients who ring for an appointment will be given a telephone appointment with a clinician and if a face-to-face appointment is deemed to be necessary, you will be seen at the practice in a in a safe way. PLEASE DO NOT JUST TURN UP IF YOU FEEL UNWELL – WE WILL ASK YOU TO LEAVE AND RING TO MAKE A TELEPHONE APPOINTMENT.

Some non-NHS work may not be processed during this period, for example, some insurance forms, PIP appeals, private medicals, copies of medical records etc. Our ultimate aim is to keep patients and staff safe and to do this we must change the way we deal with non-NHS work.

Thanks very much for your cooperation and understanding during this very challenging time.
