Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Update
We are receiving a lot of requests for prescriptions with patients requesting more than their normal supply. We have been informed that there will be a sufficient supply of drugs as long as people DO NOT STOCKPILE and we will therefore NOT be increasing your normal dosage.
In order to help our pharmacy colleagues, we will be asking all our patients who contact the surgery for medication to nominate a local pharmacy if they haven't already done so. We will then be able to electronically send your prescription to them.
CORONAVIRUS AND REQUEST FOR DOCTOR'S NOTE (The Med3 'Fit Note')
If you remain unwell and unfit to work after 7 days, the current advice is to visit www.111.nhs.uk where there is an online self-assessment tool: you may be invited to call 111 and given further advice and a Med3 certificate will be emailed to you. YOU DO NOT NEED TO CONTACT YOUR GP.
Take care, stay at home, protect our NHS and save lives
