COVID-19 UPDATE from the surgery - 25/03/2020
Thank you for all your social distancing efforts. This is so important in halting the spread of the pandemic and allowing our NHS services to cope.
In order to comply with this, our surgery doors are now locked. Chickerell surgery is temporarily closed.
All requests for appointments, visits or procedures will be triaged by a GP or nurse. Please only come to the surgery if you are invited to do so.
e-Consult is the preferred method of contact with your GP as you can get a direct reply back without needing to wait on the telephone.
You may drop off your prescription requests in the letter box outside the surgery still. Please provide the surgery with a nominated chemist to send it to as you will not be able to collect scripts from the surgery. There are forms left outside each surgery to provide a nominated chemist. Pharmacies are under immense pressure at the moment so please allow as much time as possible before collection.
Please be aware that our team are working extremely hard in exceptionally difficult circumstances to ensure we can provide a safe service for you.
Thank you for your patience in this difficult time.
Dr Rachael Stow
