FACE COVERINGS COMPULSORY FROM 19th JULY 2021
The wearing of face coverings for both staff and patients will remain compulsory when entering our practice from Monday 19th July 2021. Thank you for your co-operation to help keep both our staff and patients safe and NHSE/I support this decision.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak how you contact the practice and consultations have changed. Our practice is still open and our clinical staff are still seeing patients face to face. However, you may be offered a telephone consultation initially with GP's and Nurse Practitioners. This telephone consultation may develop into a video consultation if possible. If a face to face consultation is necessary the clinician will advise this and an appointment will be booked while you are on the telephone.
Please do not attend the practice unless necessary, if your query could be dealt with via the telephone, econsult (link is on the homepage) or via the NHS app, then please use these methods.
If you are attending the practice please wear a face covering and use the hand sanitising dispensers when entering and leaving the premises. Our practice has put these restrictions in place to help protect yourself, other patients and our staff from Coronavirus.
REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ORDERING
Due to covid restrictions easing and the increased pressure on our telephone system, Chadwick Practice will no longer be taking routine repeat prescriptions by telephone. If you are wanting to order your repeat prescription, please use the ordering methods that were in place pre-covid such as: placing in our postbox just outside our waiting area, by post or via the NHS app or Online serivces.
Fair Processing Notice - NICE
Our practice has been asked to take part in a pilot with NICE. The aim of the pilot is to test potential new general practice quality indicators in a representative group of general practices in England.
The indicators focus on dementia, depression and anxiety and people who are carers. By taking part in the pilot, we will also be sharing the views of some practice staff, based on consent. Consent will be recorded via a form and held for the duration of the pilot. This information will be shared securely, reported to NICE and then deleted at the end of the pilot process.
Piloting is designed to improve the quality of service you receive from your GP, to develop good practices which can be used nationwide.
If you would like further information, or do not wish to take part in the pilot, please inform the practice manager.
