Due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus, we are taking measures in line with guidance shared by NHS England and Public Health authorities to minimise risks associated with the virus.
The following measures we have taken to protect our staff and patients are as follows:
All patients are now required to contact Brownhill Surgery by telephone to request an appointment, providing details of their need. A member of the clinical team will then phone you back to discuss your need, and wherever possible this need will be met over the telephone. If the clinician deems that you require a face to face appointment, you will be asked some screening questions to determine whether there is a need for a coronavirus assessment. If this is the case you will be asked to self-isolate for 7-14 days depending on your living circumstances. If there is no risk you will be given a face to face appointment if the request for an appointment is urgent.
Patients can order their prescription over the telephone during this very difficult and challenging time.
Latest vaccination information will be posted here.
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It's fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals.
