Self Referrals to the NHS Volunteer Responders scheme
If you feel you are vulnerable at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, and you would benefit from the NHS Volunteer Responders you can self-refer to the scheme rather than depending on us or other professionals to refer you.
The number to make a self-referral is: 0808 1963646.
The volunteers can help you with shopping, prescription deliveries, biological sample collection and transport to medical appointments.
If you are experiencing domestic abuse you can seek support by ringing the National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247 or, if an emergency, please dial 999.
Your medication will be issued as normal. However, you will also no longer be able to come into the surgery to collect prescriptions. This is to prevent too many people in the waiting area. All prescriptions will need to be sent electronically to the chemist (for this we will need your consent - please call reception and tell them that you would like your prescriptions to go electronically and to which chemist).
Order prescriptions online (links below).
Please order your medication 7 days in advance, this will allow us time to process your prescription whilst ensuring you don’t run out. Prescription requests WILL NOT be taken by telephone. We are not able to process more than a months' worth of medication at a time. This is to prevent stock piling and creating a lack of available medication for the whole country.
Clearly this is a rapidly evolving situation and our service may have to change to reflect this but please be assured that the care of our patients will be met as far as we can.
We will endeavour to keep our website updated but there are ways you can help yourself:

NHS England have produced a very simple 'Stay At Home' guidance document which is attached here.
We have currently suspended ALL online appointments due to additional information being required on booking because of Coronavirus.
