Wheatfield Surgery Requests you to Stay Safe

Please see important patient information on Coronavirus and how to help the surgery at this difficult time Advice for patients

PLEASE NOTE THAT WHERE POSSIBLE WE SHALL BE POSTING PRESCRIPTIONS, SICK NOTES AND OTHER PAPERWORK TO PATIENTS TO REDUCE FOOTFALL TO THE PRACTICE

12/03/2020

Dear Patient. In light of the Coronavirus situation ALL face to face GP and minor illness nurse appointments have now been suspended. If you have a booked appointment with a GP or minor illness nurse please DO NOT attend the surgery. The GP or nurse will telephone you instead at the time of your booking. Some appointments with the nurses and Health Care Assistants for dressings, stitch removal, blood tests, smear tests and vaccinations will go ahead if the patient is well. If you have any respiratory or flu like symptoms please do not attend. We have closed the gate at the entrance to the surgery, you will be triaged by a member of the reception team at the gate before you are allowed to enter, to check that you do not have symptoms. Repeat prescription requests can be placed in the box at the entrance or email to wheatfield.surgery@nhs.net. Please co-operate with the surgery team at this time - these measures are in place to protect patients and staff. Thank you. Wheatfield Surgery

DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS SITUATION WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED BY PUBLIC HEALTH TO DISABLE ONLINE BOOKING FOR FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS - ALL REQUESTS FOR FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS WILL HAVE TO BE BOOKED BY CALLING THE RECEPTION TEAM. VIDEO CONSULTATIONS ARE STILL AVAILABLE TO BOOK ONLINE.
WE WILL RE-ENABLE THIS FEATURE ONCE ADVISED TO DO SO
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION

The NHS in Bedfordshire and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff.

Anyone who has symptoms of a cough or high temperature, should immediately:

  • Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people, your whole household with need to self-isolate for 14 days (self-isolation)

Information for the public is available at gov.uk/coronavirus.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

 

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

You can find the latest information and advice from Public Health England at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Wheatfield Surgery is an Accredited Training Practice

The surgery is an accredited training practice for doctors who want to specialise as a GP.  Our GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who have several years of hospital experience. They are attached to the Practice for periods of 6 to 12 months and provide the same range and standard of care as the other doctors in the Practice team. The consultations of GP registrars are sometimes videoed for training purposes. We always ask your permission beforehand and the recording will only take place if you agree to this and provide your written consent.


Statement of Intent

We offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print any summary information from their records relating to medications, allergies and adverse reactions.
