IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM MONDAY 16TH MARCH 2020

 

 

GP / Advanced Nurse Practitioner Appointments

 

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic ALL GP or ANP appointment requests will be passed through the telephone triage system. Only patients who physically need to be seen in the practice and who do not have COVID-19 symptoms will be booked an appointment to attend the practice.

 

If you need to be seen and you have possible COVID-19 symptoms arrangements will be made & discussed with you on the phone.

 

To book an appointment you will need to call

0161 736 1166

 

Unfortunately due to the pandemic we have had to temporarily suspend online booking so you will be unable to book an appointment via the patient online services website, the NHS app or the MyGP app.

 

Please note you are still able to use the online services to order your prescriptions.

 

Practice Nurse appointments

 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and after advice from the BMA and NHS England all routine nursing appointment procedures have been suspended. The following procedures will still be performed:

 

  • URGENT blood tests - where their urgency has been determined by one of our clinicians
  • B12 injections
  • 8 week baby checks
  • Baby immunisations
  • URGENT cervical screening (smears)
  • Depo injections (contraception)
  • Pill checks - done via the phone

 



 

Procedure when you attend the practice:

 

  • The inner front door to the practice is LOCKED. A member of the reception team will come to the door let you in and re-lock the door behind you to prevent unauthorised entry to the building.
  • If you attend with other people unless you need physical aid or assistance during your appointment we politely request that any friends or family who attend with you wait outside the practice so we can control the amount of people in the reception area.
  • Upon entry to the building you will be given a mask & gloves. These MUST be worn whilst you are in the practice.
  • You may sit on one of the free chairs in reception. In order to social distance signs have been put on chairs not to be used to ensure patients stay 2m away from each other.
  • During your appointment the clinician will have placed the chair in a suitable position - please do not move it.
  • During your appointment the clinician will be wearing PPE - this includes a face shield, face mask, apron & gloves. Whilst we understand this is unfamiliar and strange looking this is done to protect both our clinican and you. Our clinicians will not remove their PPE under any circumstances and please dont ask them to.
  • Once you appointment is over you should exit the building as quickly as possible. A member of reception will let you out of the locked door and lock it behind you.
