NHS

When you are submitting an E-consult it is imperative that you are available to receive the call from the GP.

If the GP is unable to contact you due to the call not being answered you will need to resubmit an eConsult

Please note we do not accept prescription requests via eConsult.
 Please post your request in the letter box at the surgery or by clicking on the link on the home page ‘Order Your Prescription’ to submit via systmonline patient services – please contact reception to obtain your username & password

Changes in how you request your repeat prescriptions
Please note over the next few weeks and months we are phasing out using our generic email address for patients to order repeat prescriptions. In its place we will be using our Systm One online access facility, this is because it is safer, more auditable and allows patient to see exactly when their medication is due to be ordered.

When you log on to Systm One online and submit your request, it directly goes into your medical records and makes the processing the requests much more streamline for our staff & GP’s.
To access Systm One online you will need to contact the surgery and ask for a username & Password click on the ‘Order your prescription’ box (green coloured tile box) on the home page.
If you have previously registered for Systm One online and forgotten your password, please click on the I’ve forgotten my password link.

Face-to-Face Assessment Centres

Increased support announced for patients with COVID-19 symptoms and members of their household

GP surgeries in Halton and Warrington are working with NHS 111 and local hospitals to provide more advice and treatment to patients with COVID-19 symptoms and members of their household who are self-isolating. The support, which includes telephone, video and face-to-face assessments, will be provided to help these patients with a range of health issues and concerns.

Advice for patients with COVID-19 symptoms
If you have COVID-19 symptoms and you need advice or treatment with any health issue, you should contact NHS 111 in the first instance, unless it is a life-threatening emergency, then you should dial 999.

• If you have possible COVID-19 and you are struggling to cope with your symptoms, you should use the NHS 111 online Coronavirus service – https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.
• If you have COVID-19 symptoms but have another health concern, please contact NHS 111 online at https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or via phone.

NHS 111 may then refer you to your GP Practice for further assessment via phone or video call. If clinically appropriate, a face-to-face appointment will be booked by the practice at one of the dedicated face-to-face assessment sites which have been set up in Halton and Warrington. As a result, you may need to go to a different surgery than normal for an assessment with a GP. The sites will not offer testing for COVID-19 and are not public testing sites.

To ensure the safety of patients and staff, only patients who have the complaint and a booked appointment at the assessment sites will be allowed access. Patients will only be allowed to enter one at a time, they will be asked to wait in a car if possible and only enter when they are contacted by mobile phone.

Advice for patients living in a household with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms
If you have a health concern but are self-isolating because you live in a household with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms, you can contact the surgery directly via phone or by contacting the practice via an online form on the practice website (eConsult).

IMPORTANT: Please make the surgery aware that you are living in a household with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms.
A clinical member of staff will call you back to provide an assessment over the phone and they will arrange a video or face-to face appointment for you if required. Face-to-face appointments for patients who live in a household with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms will take place at one of the dedicated face-to-face assessment sites.

Advice for patients who live in households that DO NOT have COVID-19 symptoms
To reduce any potential risk of infection, patients who live in households without any COVID-19 symptoms will be seen separately from patients with COVID-19 symptoms and members of their household. As a result of the new arrangements, you may be asked to attend a different surgery than usual. If you need to attend a different surgery, we will advise you at the time of booking your appointment.

Please be reminded… do not to come into the surgery without a pre-booked appointment. If you need help with a health concern, please contact us via phone or by completing an online form on our website (eConsult). A clinical member of staff will call you back to provide an assessment over the phone and they will arrange a video or face-to face appointment for you if required.

Booking Appointments

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the UK we are changing how we book all face to face appointments. The online booking appointment system has been temporarily suspended at the surgery and we ask all patients to use either eConsult or to ring the practice to book an appointment. This will ensure that we are able to fully assess risk before appointments are booked at the surgery.

As you are aware the practice uses eConsult and patients are advised to seek advice via this service. Please visit the services section on our website for further information and access to the eConsult service

For any general information on coronavirus please visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19

Until further notice all prescriptions will be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. If you have not yet nominated a Pharmacy please do this as soon as possible. You can do this by contacting your pharmacy and ask them to do this or practice staff assist you with setting up the nomination.

Delay Phase

We are now in the delay phase of our response to COVID-19. This entails significant changes to how we identify and manage potential cares of COVID-19.

  1. From today the public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have
  • A new continuous cough or
  • High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher
  1. The geographic element of the case definition has now been removed. Travel and contact history are no longer important for diagnosis, which is on the basis of symptoms alone. If people who have travelled do not have symptoms they do not need to stay at home, regardless of their travel history.

Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms.
