Informative notice to patients of Carradale Surgery - Coronovirus
In light of the currently evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation in the UK, Carradale Surgery is taking some preventative measures to help protect our community.
We are encouraging contact by way of telephone, email or using our letterbox in the side door for paper correspondence.
In order to minimise the spread of the virus, we are triaging all requests for appointments. and encouraging patients to engage in telephone consultations for the time being, rather than attending the surgery for ‘face-to-face’ appointments. If the clinician then decides it is necessary for you to be seen in clinic, this will be arranged for you.
We have locked our main entrance, allowing entry only to attend essential appointments, thus limiting the number of patients in our waiting room at one time.
Please email Carradale.firstname.lastname@example.org (preferable), call (01583 431376) or post through the letterbox at the left-hand side of the building.
Please collect your medication 48 hours after ordering and between the hours of 2:00 pm and 4:30pm. Ring the doorbell if collecting a repeat prescription.
We would ask that everyone understands and appreciates our reasons for implementing the above measures; we have the best interests of our entire community in mind and are keen to minimise the risk of infection to as many patients as possible.
PLEASE USE HAND GEL WHEN ENTERING AND EXITING THE BUILDING.
For those who have concerns with regard to whether or not they may currently be at risk of Coronavirus, please visit NHS 111 (https://111.nhs.uk/) which has a very helpful dedicated ‘Online Coronavirus Service’.
