Thank you for calling Fieldhead Surgery. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the unprecedented number of phone calls and staff sickness you maybe expected to wait up to 20 minutes before your call is answered.
Due to the pandemic and the safety of all patients and staff we must now limit footfall to the surgery. All routine appointments will be changed to telephone consultations or even cancelled depending on staffing levels. Where possible please cancel your routine appointment and rebook later to help ease pressure on the system.
All on the day urgent appointments will be triaged by the reception team and if necessary the clinician will be asked to call you back. Please note that the reception team will signpost you to other appropriate care providers.
Please order your prescriptions online or by telephone.
Please do not order medication early or any medication which is not on your repeat list or you have not had for some time. This causes supply issues in the chain.
Please nominate a pharmacy if you have not already done so. By doing this your medication will be delivered to your home address or you can collect from the pharmacy. Please do not come to the surgery to collect your prescription. If you have not nominated a pharmacy then we will have no alternative but to post your prescription to your home address.
Due to unprecedented demand prescriptions may take up to 72 hrs to process at the surgery.
If you are self isolating because of coronavirus and require a sick note, we will not provide a sick note to cover this. Please speak to your employer. If you require a sick note for any other reason then please telephone the surgery and we will post the sick note using second class post to your home address. Please do not come to surgery to collect your sick note. Sick notes can also take up to 72 hours to process.
