General Advice regarding Corona Virus Posted on 14 May 2020

We understand there is much confusion and anxiety surrounding Corona Virus.  We are experiencing many questions that we really shouldn't be dealing with as we need to target our care carefully, to patients who are ill, rather than those who have a question about scenarios to do with Corona Virus.

Our advice is that you keep updated by watching, and listening to, the News, and by going on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/  Advice from the government is updating daily.  Advice we may have today will be inaccuarate in the next few days.

We understand how testing this situation is, for all of us.  Please consider this when contacting us, could you get that information yourself from another source?  

 If you are unwell with Corona Virus you need to access   https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ in the first instance. Do not come into the surgery.  We are not involved in any direct corona virus care.  It is all to be directed to 111 or secondary care.  

If you are unwell with anything else, not Corona, then contact us by telephone.  We are still working, we are just not seeing patients face to face until screened.  

You can email us repeat prescriptions orders the address is vrccg.prescriptionswss@nhs.net  Provide us with your name, dob and address and each item of medication you require. So you don't have to come into the surgery to collect your script please give us the name of the pharmacy you want this sending to electronically.  If you don't do this we will automatically send it to the Well pharmacy next door to the surgery so you don't have to come into the surgery. 

Help us to keep us all safe so we can remain open as long as possible to carry on delivering Primary Care to you.

Many thanks.
