NHS Coronavirus Advice

Social Distancing

Do your part to help the NHS. Just because the lock down rules are easing it doesn't mean you should stop social distancing.

To stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), you should avoid close contact with anyone you do not live with.

It's very important to do what you can to reduce the risk of you and other people getting ill with coronavirus.

You can spread the virus even if you do not have symptoms.

For further information on what you can do and what you can't do:

NHS Social Distancing Guidance

NHS Social Distancing and Changes to Everyday Life Advice

What is self-isolation?

Self-isolation is when you stay at home because you have or might have coronavirus (COVID-19).

This helps stop the virus spreading to other people.

Self-isolation is different to:

  • social distancing – general advice for everyone to avoid close contact with other people
  • shielding – advice for people at high risk to stay at home to avoid getting the virus

When to self-isolate

Self-isolate if:

  • you have any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
  • you're waiting for a coronavirus test result
  • you've tested positive for coronavirus – this means you have coronavirus
  • you live with someone who has symptoms, is waiting for a test result or has tested positive
  • someone in your support bubble has symptoms, is waiting for a test result or has tested positive

Access to the Medical Unit - Coronavirus

Due to the current situation regarding the Coronavirus outbreak; we have decided to limit the access to the Medical Unit for the foreseeable future. We are asking patients to only present at the surgery if they have an appointment, a prescription to collect or a form or letter to collect.

If you do need to come in to the Medical Unit for whatever reason we will be screening all patients either over phone or at the main entrance.

We are encouraging patients to either contact us via telephone or use our online services if they want to book an appointment, have any queries or need to order a prescription.

Appointments Line: 01530 270 933

Enquiries Line: 01530 270 667

To register for Online Services please call our enquiries line; where one of our receptionists will issue you with a Username and Password for you to make appointments and order prescriptions online. 


Appointment Changes - Coronavirus

We have changed the way our appointments are being offered at the Medical Unit to help combat the spread of Coronavirus. 

We are currently trying to telephone triage all of our appointments where possible; this is including the appointments we offer with with the GPs, Nurses, Pharmacist and our Morning Clinic. Patients are only being asked to present at the surgery if they have had a phone call with a clinician first and if the clinician believes it is both necessary and safe for them to do so. All patients will be screened for possible coronavirus symptoms by either the receptionist or clinician, prior to them coming into the Medical Unit for their appointment.

We are currently going through our appointment list and changing all appointments where possible to a telephone triage appointment instead. Patients will be informed of the changes to their appointments either via phone call or text message. 

The Medical Unit asks all patients to call the appointments line on 01530 270933 if they need to make an appointment; alternatively patients can call the enquiries line on 01530 270 667 if they would like to register for online services, where patients are able to book appointments and order prescriptions online.

Enhanced Summary Care Records

-

If you are registered with a GP practice in England you will have a Summary Care Record and therefore will be able to sign up to an Enhanced Summary Care Record, unless you have previously chosen to opt out.

This can include details of illnesses and health problems, past operations and vaccinations, treatment preferences, information about the kind of support needed, and who should be contacted if more information is required.

Staff in hospitals do not routinely have access to individual’s GP medical records. By consenting to an Enhanced Summary Care Record we can all help hospital staff treat us more quickly and effectively. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete the form but it could end up saving your life.

Please encourage your family and friends to sign up too. You can download the consent form here and then return the completed form to the Medical Unit reception.

This can help the staff involved in your care make better and safer decisions about how best to treat you.

Before Booking a GP Appointment

NHS Signposting

Before booking an appointment with a GP, ask yourself these three questions:

Can I?

  1. Self-care
  2. Use NHS Choices or similar reputable websites/resources
  3. Seek advice/treatment via a pharmacist

When attempting to book an appointment to see a GP/Nurse Practitioner, you may have our receptionists ask you questions in an attempt to signpost you in the right direction to avoid any unnecessary appointment bookings.

Often patients ask for an appointment with the GP/Nurse Practitioner when sometimes another Health Care Professional or source could deal with the problem more appropriately.

 


Extended Access Appointments

 

You can now see a GP or other Healthcare professionals during:

  • Weekday Mornings:             7.00am – 8.30am
  • Weekday Evenings:             18.00pm – 22.00pm
  • Saturdays & Sundays:         10.00am – 16.00pm

 

To book an appointment, please call the Medical Unit on 01530 270 667. You may be able to get an appointment on the same day if required.

 

Depending on your individual circumstances and symptoms, we may offer you an ‘extended access’ appointment.

Please note however, that these appointments will not be in your usual GP practice and may not be with one of your usual GPs or nurses.

Depending on the reason for your appointment, and if you are in agreement, it may be suitable for you to see an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, instead of a GP.

The clinician you see will be able to access relevant sections of your medical notes and will communicate what has happened during your appointment back to your usual GP practice.

 

These appointments will be available at the following locations:

 

  • Loughborough Urgent Care Centre at Loughborough Community Hospital
  • Coalville Community Hospital
  • Hinckley and Bosworth Community Hospital

 

If you would like to know more please speak to a member of practice staff.
