COVID-19: HELP US TO HELP YOU

Posted on March 25th, 2020

We are working very hard at Wing Surgery to try and care for our patients in the best way possible during this Coronavirus pandemic.  To do this we need to protect both our patients and staff.

We are seeing a large increase in workload, with many more phone calls coming into the practice and, in particular, more requests for repeat medications which causes pressure on our dispensary team.

We are meeting regularly as a team to review the service we can provide.  We have plans for managing various possible scenarios and in line with Government guidelines we are concentrating on providing urgent care.  We have introduced a telephone triage system for patients who feel they have an urgent problem.  We will be suspending routine health checks and monitoring.

How can you help us?  Please use our service responsibly and be a ‘patient’ patient considering the added pressures under which we are all currently working.  DO NOT come into the surgery if you have a fever or new continuous cough as this will put staff and other patients at risk.  Use the 111 online service if you are concerned about having the coronavirus.  Use our patient access system as much as possible, especially for ordering repeat prescriptions.

Repeat prescriptions are taking longer to process at the moment. Please do not order medication before you need it.  It just adds more pressure onto an already overloaded system.  It is a good idea to put your request in a week before you need it, but please note it will take between 3 and 4 working days to dispense.

Thank you.
