Practice Closure

Dear Patients,

I am sorry to inform you that due to my retirement, my practice at Radford Health Centre will close to patients on Tuesday 30 June 2020.

Due to coronavirus, practices are operating slightly differently to prioritise patient safety. All patients registered in my practice have been allocated to new GP practices to make this transition as easy and seamless as possible.

You should now have received a letter outlining which GP practice you have been allocated to. Patients have been allocated to practices based on their postcode.

If you wish to register with an alternative practice, you can do this. Please wait until after 30 June 2020 before registering to allow the allocation process to complete in its entirety. Please be aware that due to coronavirus, practices are unable to register new patients face to face at this time, so please wait until it is safe to do so.

If you wish to register with an alternative practice, details can be found on NHS Choices at www.nhs.uk.

If you need any help or have any concerns, then please contact the Patient Experience Team on 0115 8839570 during office hours or email ncccg.patientexperience@nhs.net.

Finally, I would like to thank you very much for your support and understanding over the years.

Kind regards,
Dr Phillips

 

Wuhan Novel Coronavirus

The NHS in Nottingham and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely 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 risk to the general public is moderate. If you have arrived back to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau within 14 days, follow the specific advice for returning travellers.

Call 111 now if you've been:

  • to Wuhan or Hubei Province in China in the last 14 days (even if you do not have symptoms)
  • to other parts of China, including Macau and Hong Kong, in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if it's mild)
  • to Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Republic of Korea or Malaysia in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if it's mild)
  • in close contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus

Do not go to a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital. Call 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.

Further information is available on nhs.uk

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited Wuhan or Hubei province, China are currently in isolation.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.

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.

Electronic Prescriptions

Electronic Prescription Service

This practice can now send prescriptions electronically. This is a more convenient way for patients to obtain their prescriptions. Many patients will no longer need to attend the practice to collect paper copies of their prescriptions. They will instead be able to go direct to their nominated pharmacy. Further information about Electronic Prescriptions.

 

Named GP for all patients

From April 2015 all GP practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

Dr Phillips is the named GP for all patients registered at the practice. She has overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you have always done.
 

On-line Appointments and Prescriptions

You can now book your appointment and order your repeat prescription online using our patient online access service. Available 24 hours a day, it's especially useful when the practice is closed or telephone lines are busy.
