Coronavirus -updated 18:00 3rd April

Please stay away from the surgery unless invited by us to attend

If you have a new continuous cough OR a high temperature of 37.8 degrees or higher please DO NOT CONTACT the surgery and PLEASE STAY AT HOME and SELF-ISOLATE for 7 days.  If you live with others your household must self-isolate for 14 days.  Please follow current advice, found here which includes information on how to self-isolate and advice on who to contact if you feel you can not manage your symptoms at home.

What to do if you are worried you have contracted Coronavirus:

Please do not contact the surgery, please visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 which will take you through a series of questions to check your condition and offer advice.  The questions you will be asked and the advice you receive changes depending on your answers so it is useful to check back if you condition changes.

You are not unwell , but would like information on the Coronavirus and your health:

If you would like general advice about Coronavirus please  click here or visit  https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

You are unwell,  but it is not Coronavirus related:

To help us manage the increased demand on our services we would be grateful if as a first step you could use the online services provided by the NHS.  This includes an online tool which will take you through your symptoms and give advice.  Please click here or visit 111.nhs.uk

You can also access guides to conditions, symptoms and treatments, including what to do and where to get help from www.nhs.uk

In order to keep our patients and staff as safe as possible we are offering telephone and video consultations with our clinical team.  We will only bring patients to the surgery where physical examination is essential and where both the clinician and patient agree the benefits outweigh the risks. 

You need to order a repeat medication:

Please do not request your medication early, we will not be able to prescribe for you until it is due.  This is to ensure we can maintain the medication supply chain so everyone can have what they need when they really need it. 

Please do not come into the practice to request your medication.  If you already have an online account, please use this.  If you have access to the internet, but do not have an account we would encourage you to create one so you can order your medication online.  We would usually ask you to present yourself and photographic ID to the practice to ensure we are giving the correct person access to the correct medical record. However, during this period of social isolation the process is slightly different:

  1. Please start the registration process online, by clicking here. This will take you to the patient access website
  2. Once you have created your account please login and associate your account with the practice - you will need our postcode which is CB1 9HR, please make sure you pick 34 fishers Lane (not 204 high street).
  3. Please then send us an email to capccg.chmcprescribing@nhs.net so we know you have created an account.  
  4. We will then arrange a video consultation with you where you can show us your photographic ID (passport or driving licence) and we will activate your account.

Otherwise you can use our dedicated email address: capccg.chmcprescribing@nhs.net Please ensure you include your first name and surname and your date of birth and list the medication you need.  We will not be able to answer other medical queries sent to this email address.   If you do not have internet access at home given the extenuating circumstances we will take prescription requests over the telephone.

To prevent you having to come to the surgery to pick up your prescription please tell us which pharmacy you would like to fill your prescription and we will send it electronically.  If for any reason you need to change your selected pharmacy you can do this by contacting your preferred pharmacy or telephoning us.

Shielded patients and  government letters:

The NHS has identified a cohort of patients at risk of severe illness if they were to catch Coronavirus. These patients have been written to by the Government with advice on "shielding" themselves and what to do should they become unwell. There is an FAQ document here

You need a letter for your employer:

If you are unable to work for more than seven days because you or someone you live with has symptoms of Coronavirus you can obtain an isolation note by visiting NHS 111 online (https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/) and using the online symptom checker for yourself or someone in your household. Please do not contact the surgery for this.  You can self-certify for the first seven days and do not need to provide your employer with evidence until day eight.

If you receive a letter from NHSE because you are at higher risk you can use this letter for your employer.

If you are in an at risk group, are not currently unwell, please speak to your employer about your working arrangements. You do not need to speak to us.

 

Finally, a thank you to all our patients who have been using the online services available to manage your health needs and for all those who have offered kind and supportive words, we really appreciate it :) 


We hope that our website will provide clear and helpful information to you. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our online patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
