Coronavirus information update 25/03/2020

Due to the changes made to the NHS advice regarding COVID-19 on Monday 23rd March 2020, Doctors of the World have updated the COVID-19 translated guidance at: https://www.doctorsoftheworld.org.uk/coronavirus-information/

It is now available in English, Albanian, Arabic, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Turkish, Polish, Romanian, Russian. The following languages will also be available soon: Bengali, Dari, Farsi, Hindi, Kurdish Sorani, Mandarin, Pashto, Urdu, Vietnamese, Tigrinya, Amharic, Malayalam, Somali, Bulgarian, Latvian, and Hungarian. 

The guidance is based on NHS and the UK Government’s updated advice and health information, and we have produced translated versions thanks to the support and assistance of the British Red Cross, Migrant Help, Clear Voice, and the Eastern European Resource Centre. We really hope it will help to ensure this important guidance reaches migrant and asylum-seeking communities in the UK.

COVID 19 update - Appointments at the surgery from 11/3/2020 until further notice:

From 11/3/2020 we will be providing telephone triage appointments with our doctors until further notice. This is to minimise the risk to patients and staff to the coronavirus and avoid any unnecessary contact. Patients may be contacted by our reception team to change face to face appointments to telephone consultation with doctors or nurses where a face to face appointment is not needed.

  • You can go on the e-consult website here to self-check symptoms and receive on the spot medical advice.
  • Visit the 111 website for information about the coronavirus and up to date guidance.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you.

Reviews

New medication can only be started by the doctor and never by receptionists. Previous medication cannot be re-started without the doctor’s authorisation. If you haven't been seen by the doctor or nurse in the last six months, please make an appointment for when your next prescription is due. If you find you will need your medication sooner than usual, for example if you are going on holiday, please bring it to the attention of the receptionist in order for it to be dealt with efficiently.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
