Coronovirus 

If you need information please use the website links below rather than telephoning 111, as the service is currently experiencing a high volume of calls

***From 16th March 2020 - Advice for the NHS in England ***

 

The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is to stay at home for 7 days from the onset of symptoms if you have either:

 

• a high temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)

or

• a new continuous cough

 

Other members of the household should self-isolate for 14 days from the onset of symptoms in the first household member 

 

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or a hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

 

 

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

 

• you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

• your condition gets worse

• your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

 

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online

 

Stay At Home advice can be found here.

 

Public health is available on the PHE .gov website (includes all government advice):

Information remains subject to regular change and updates. 

 

Appointments In these unprecedented times everything at the surgery has had to change. For the foreseeable future we will no longer see patients face to face unless there is a very urgent clinical need. All requests for advice or assessment will receive a telephone triage call or video call. Face to face assessments will be conducted with the strictest infection control measures in place and may occur at a site other than Bredon Hill Surgery.

 

If you have regular blood tests, injections or dressings, please phone the surgery for advice if you have not been contacted one week before this becomes due. Anything currently booked and deemed to be 'routine' will be cancelled.

 

Please follow all current government advice and for information - see links above

 

This is a precautionary measure to allow us to ask patients questions prior to visiting the surgery.

Our primary concern is to keep patients and staff safe and to ensure the practice continues to operate effectively

 

We thank you for your understanding at this very difficult time.

 

Dispensary 

 

Dispensary will process prescriptions and will be open Monday to Friday for these to be collected from 9am - 1pm and 2pm - 5pm.

 

Place your order 7-10 days before your supply is due to run out. PLEASE CAN WE ASK YOU ALLOW 72 working HOURS BEFORE COLLECTION

 

E.G. If you order on the weekend the prescription will be ready on Wednesday of the following week

 

We appreciate you do not want a wasted trip however; the current workload dispensary and admin are facing and current staff levels mean we are not able to take calls to confirm when your prescription will be ready. Please follow the above guidelines

 

Please be advised we will not be processing early requests/requests for additional medication

Issues will be for 28 days and no early requests will be accepted

 

Card payments only please, but if you can only pay with cash you must bring the exact amount (£9 per item / £9.15 from 1st April). 

Exemptions - please be reminded it is YOUR RESPONSILITY to ensure you have provided us with the correct details

 

Placing orders - Please be reminded that unfortunately, due to the high volume of calls we are not taking requests for repeat prescriptions over the phone

If you do not have patient access to request medication online, you can e-mail your request – the e-mail address is on our web page – please provide your name, date of birth and the item(s) you need.

Or

Repeat slips/requests for medication can be posted in the post box on the gate. Please can we ask you DO NOT leave any samples in the post box as these will have to be destroyed.
