Haverhill Family Practice (16.11.2020)

 

WE ARE STILL OPEN!

We are open and here to help you, please telephone the surgery if you need to speak to a doctor or need an appointment with a nurse.  If you currently feel anxious or worried and need advice, we are here for you.  We are working in a slightly different way by offering a telephone triage service to keep you and our staff safe during this pandemic. If the doctor feels that you need to be seen, you will be invited down to see us. Our eConsult service is available 24/7 if you need advice, a sick note, repeat medication etc.  Please see our home page for the eConsult banner.

 

UPDATE ON CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) OUTBREAK (28.4.20)

 

The surgery is not closed. Due to the Coronavirus (Covid–19) outbreak we are operating differently so that patients can be dealt with efficiently and safely.

The majority of patients will be called by telephone on the day and invited in if necessary. Patients can also use the e-Consult service which is assessable via the website www.haverhillfamilypractice.co.uk.

Prescriptions and sick certificates can be requested using the slips which are located in the surgery’s foyer. Alternatively, prescriptions can be requested using the online service and sick certificates can be requested via e-Consult. Sick certificates will be posted to patients.

All patients attending the surgery will be asked the reason why they are attending and if they enter the premises their temperature will be taken by one of our nursing team.

Many thanks for your support during this difficult period.

Haverhill Family Practice.
