CORONA VIRUS (COVID19)
The new normal!
It is lovely to hear about people meeting up, resuming activities and going on holidays again. We will still be operating a policy of telephoning patients first before we see patients face to face. This is because:
You will always be able to let us know if you would prefer to talk to us face to face out of personal preference or for any reason and we will support you in this.
We may continue to wear masks in the surgery as individual choice of clinicians but if our wearing a mask is a problem for communication reasons please let us know.
We want everyone to feel safe coming to our practice so we encourage you to still wear a mask, if you can in our waiting room areas where other vulnerable patients may be waiting to see us too.
If you have cold, cough or flu like symptoms you may be still asked to wait outside or seen outside in order to keep others safe. You must wear a mask in any part of the building unless discussed with a clinician
Long term condition reviews
We may contact you initially by text to prioritise the best way of reviewing your condition.
You can contact us anytime if you have concerns or queries about your medications. We will contact you when you medication needs reviewing.
Blood pressure monitoring
The local pharmacists are now being paid to carry out blood pressure checks on anybody aged 40 and over (unless you have an existing diagnosis of hypertension). If you think you have not had a blood pressure check in the last five years please see them to get this done and let us know the result so we can update this in your notes.

Announcement from Dr Tim Heywood
It is with great sadness that I have to announce that I will be leaving NHS practice in August of this year. I have been working as a GP in this area since 2011, initially at Chilwell Meadows Surgery and then at The Valley Surgery. It has been a great privilege to be in this great community for such a period of time, and I hope that I have brought the best I can to all the patients of both surgeries. I’m sorry I can’t say goodbye individually to everyone I’d like to, and sorry that I’m not able to carry on in this most rewarding career. I’m sure the two surgeries will continue to provide the best care it is possible to provide and I wish all my colleagues and partners, and, especially, all the patients all the very best wishes for the future. Thank you all. Dr Tim Heywood.
