If you have travelled abroad in the last 14 days or been in close contact with someone with confirmed CORONAVIRUS please check the gov.uk website for the latest COVID-19 travel advice, you may need to call NHS 111 for further advice before making or attending an appointment here at the surgery

Coronavirus/ Covid 19 Update

The situation is changing rapidly and the surgery needs to make changes to the way it works to accommodate this:

  • In line with local and national guidance, there will be no pre-bookable appointments- all online booking has been suspended.  This is so that we know which clinicians are well and able to work each day.
  • We will try and honour any existing appointments that have been made, but this is subject to change and cannot be guaranteed.
  • We are moving to a telephone triage only service, so that when you ring, you will be rung back by a doctor or nurse and managed over the telephone where possible.  We are trying to keep the building as empty as we can for the protection of patients and staff.
  • This means that if you have a health concern you will need to ring the surgery on the day that you want to be called back on or seen (if necessary).  Please ensure that we have an up to date telephone number.
  • If the clinician feels that you need to be seen then they will organise an appointment for you ON THAT DAY
  • We are asking patients not to arrive early at their appointment time so that we can minimise time spent in the waiting room. Please wait outside the surgery or in your car if you are early.
  • We are asking you to stick to the one problem / one appointment rule so that appointments do not over run.
  • Routine reviews are likely to be delayed or done via phone if necessary.
  • For patients with respiratory symptoms or fevers that need to be seen we are considering asking patients to remain in their cars and so they will be assessed in the car park - more information to follow if this is instituted.

 

 

Our priority is the wellbeing and safety of all our patients and staff and we thank you for your patience and understanding at this very difficult time.

As a Rushcliffe patient you can now access routine appointments in the evenings and at weekends at one of three locations across the borough. These appointments are best suited for things that will not need an ongoing review and are bookable through this surgery during opening hours. Please see the appointments page for further information.

Outside normal surgery hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) emergency cover for the practice is provided by NEMS Community Benefit Services Ltd Out of Hours service. The Out of Hours service provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a service that is led by a range of clinical staff such as GPs, Nurses, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Emergency Care Practitioners.

This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and will be expected if required to attend Platform One Practice (based on Station Street, Nottingham) if necessary. Advice may also be given if attending for a face to face appointment is not deemed to be required.

During out of hours you should contact the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation.

 

Please note we will be closed for staff training on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 1-2pm. Please call NEMS on 01158 462395 for medical assistance during this time
