Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are 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 while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

 

The latest information on symptoms of Coronovirus infection and areas where recent travel may have resulted in a high risk of exposure can be found on nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

 

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

 

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.

 

Friends of the Surgery

FRIENDS OF THE SURGERY

In 1994, Dr Watson & Nurse Sandra Pugh founded the FRIENDS of the Surgery. Their aim was to enable the purchase of amenities for the patients’ benefit, which could not be provided by the NHS. These amenities are usually requested by members of staff; via the Practice Manager.  Over the ensuing 25 years many such ‘extras’ have been funded or part-funded. They include automatic doors; air control in the main waiting room;  a new phlebotomy chair, ECG machine, Audio booth & necessary equipment, sign-in machine, home-use blood-pressure monitors, dopplers, a medical couch, and an intranet TV screen in both waiting areas. The purchase currently in hand is the instalment of an automatic door to the main waiting room.

There is no Joining routine and, therefore no subscriptions. All adult patients (over 16 years of age) are automatically included as “Friends”.

Originally fund-raising events and careful management of a legacy covered the cost of these amenities, but we now need to replenish our funds.                             

Therefore, January 2020 will see the launch a 100 CLUB which we hope will return a steady yearly income and we urge staff and patients to support this Club so that the good work can continue.

Over the next couple of months there will be more information about the 100 CLUB on the intranet TVs, on the Friends’ noticeboard in the waiting room, and in village magazines.                                                    

From the beginning of October explanatory leaflets containing an application form will be available in the waiting areas and from the four external repeat Prescription venues                                                                                                                    The closing date for participation will be 30th November 2019.
