COVID-19 Restriction Update 

Throughout the pandemic we have worked hard to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.

From 1st June 2022 it is no longer a requirement for patients and staff to wear face masks when visiting the surgery, it will be personal preference.  The exception to this is if you are attending with respiratory symptoms - the clinician may then ask you to wear a mask. Please continue to use the hand sanitiser provided in the surgery.  You will still need to speak to a clinician before we can make an appointment for you with a Doctor – we need to limit the footfall in the surgery.  We can no longer offer our walk-in clinic so please do not just turn up if you do not have an appointment – we will turn you away. 

We do understand that it can be frustrating, but we know that when people come to us, they are sick and vulnerable so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.   We also have vulnerable members of staff who are continuing to work despite being at high risk from this disease.

In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-COVID (face to face, by phone, by e consult and by video), in addition to supporting the vaccination of 75% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months.

COVID has not gone away.   We cannot be complacent.  Stoke Surgery has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of COVID for all our patients and staff,  and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe as we can for everyone.     Thank you for your continued support.  Stay safe and, remember, if you need us, we will be here for you.

 

REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS DURING COVID 19

Please note: requests for increased quantities of repeat medication will be declined  

Please order your medication as usual to prevent additional pressure on our community pharmacies.

Please nominate a pharmacy to collect your prescription to avoid coming to the surgery

OPEN SURGERY - CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus we will not be having any walk in surgeries until further notice.

If you have a cough or a high temperature DO NOT come to the surgery.  Stay at home, self isolate for 7 days and visit www.111.nhs.uk for further advice.
