CORONA VIRUS (COVID19)
It is very important that we reduce the risk of infection to all our patients who need to attend the surgery.
DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY if you have a cough, cold, fever or shortness of breath. SELF-
During this time we will be changing our Doctor appointments to a telephone first system. If patients really need to be seen in the surgery, an appointment will be arranged.
Please wear protective facial covering if you need to come to an appointment. We cannot supply this for you. You will be asked to wait outside, preferably in a car. This is to reduce the number of people in the waiting room. At times the doors of the surgery will be locked and the doorbell with an intercom will be used. This will minimise unnecessary visits into the building
Nurses face to face appointments will be restricted to only essential ones such as immunisations, medication injections, smears, taking blood and dressings. Like our clinical pharmacist they will be carrying out long term condition reviews on the telephone. Essential blood tests for the hospital, warfarin (INRs), medication monitoring and any required urgently by the doctor will continue at your usual surgery unless you hear anything from us. The number of nurses appointments we can offer are significantly reduced because of the amount of cleaning they need to do in between appointments to ensure the safety of the vulnerable patients they look after.
See our dedicated COVID web page for advice and guidance on your mental health and wellbeing during the outbreak.
These will be carried out mainly between September and November at the surgery. To ensure that everyone who comes to the surgery will be safe we will be limiting the numbers who can come at each time.
We will text you when you can phone to make an appointment. Please wear face coverings and come at your allotted time.
To help us help you
Please can you order all your medication ONLINE via the NHS App if you possibly can. All prescriptions are being sent EPS (electronically) to a local pharmacy, please nominate one if you have not done so.
If you cannot order on line please drop your prescriptions into the box at the side of the surgery or if TOTALLY housebound and no one can do this for you phone the surgery between 10am and 12noon.
Message from Dr McCracken: It is with some sadness that I will be retiring from Chilwell Meadows Surgery in early November. I moved here 7 years ago having previously worked for many years in Arnold. I had long planned to retire in November 2020; however, I could never have imagined the circumstances in which we would find ourselves in 2020! As such I will still be available for work and am likely to be doing some locum sessions to help out in these extraordinary times.
It has been a joy and a privilege to work with such a great team and I know I will leave you in safe hands as the team at the surgery continues to grow and diversify. Wishing you all the very best for the future.
