FACE MASKS

Your safety and the safety of our staff is our priority.  As cases surge locally we will still be asking all who attend practice to wear masks and practice social distancing.  Please respect the measures we have put in place for all our benefits, especially the more vulnerable.

ZERO TOLERANCE DURING THE PANDEMIC

AS A PRACTICE WE MUST CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THE STRICT INFECTION, PREVENTION AND CONTROL MEASURES TO LIMIT THE RISK OF THE VIRUS TO YOU AS PATIENTS AND TO OUR STAFF. THIS MEANS THAT WHERE POSSIBLE OUR STAFF AND CLINICIANS WILL REMOTELY TRIAGE AND ASSESS YOUR NEEDS BEFORE DETERMINING IF A FACE-TO-FACE APPOINTMENT IS REQUIRED. IF YOUR NEEDS CAN BE MET SAFELY VIA THE TELEPHONE OR VIDEO CONSULTATION THEN THIS WILL TAKE PLACE. IF A CLINICIAN FEELS YOU REQUIRE A FACE-TO-FACE APPOINTMENT THEN THIS WILL BE ARRANGED. WE HAVE BEEN OPERATING IN THIS WAY SINCE THE START OF THE PANDEMIC IN ORDER TO CONTINUE PROVIDING ALL PATIENTS WITH ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES.
THE CURRENT PANDEMIC SITUATON IS CHALLENGING FOR EVERYONE IN DIFFERENT WAYS AND WE APPRECIATE THAT THE SITUATION WE ALL FIND OURSELVES IN CAN BE FRUSTRATING SOMETIMES. UNFORTUNATELY A NUMBER OF OUR STAFF HAVE RECENTLY EXPERIENCED FOUL AND ABUSIVE LANGUAGE OR BEHAVIOUR FROM A MINORITY OF PATIENTS. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE AND WE WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS SORT OF BEHAVIOUR TOWARDS OUR STAFF - ALL OF WHOM CONTINUE TO WORK TIRELESSLY DURING THIS PANDEMIC. 
IN LINE WITH OUR ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY, IF YOU ARE FOUND TO BE ABUSIVE TOWARDS MEMBERS OF STAFF THE APPROPRIATE ACTION WILL BE TAKEN

Telephone Lines

We are aware of the difficulties that some of our patients are experiencing in getting through to the practice on the telephone. We do apologise and we are working hard to resolve this with our IT/telephone supplier – NHS Midlands & Lancashire CSU
 
We are aware that during peak periods, for example, Monday mornings, phone lines tend to be by far the busiest.
 
The CSU are in the process of migrating to a new system which has additional capacity, a process which will conclude in early June.
 
We will keep patients up to date with this and in the meantime ask patients to bear with us, particularly during peak periods
 
Thank you
