Welcome to Eve Hill Medical Practice
FROM THE 20TH MARCH 2020 WE WILL BE SWITCHING OFF OUR FAX MACHINE. YOU CAN EMAIL US ON email@example.com
SCAM WARNING - CERVICAL SCREENING
Public Health England (PHE) has advised of a potential scam involving a text message being sent to some women claiming to be from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme “Call and Recall” service.
The text message advises that the recipient is overdue for their cervical screening test (smear test) and to call a mobile number to book an appointment and provide personal details.
These text messages are NOT from the NHS cervical screening programme, please DO NOT disclose any personal information should you receive this message.
This has been reported to the Action Fraud Line.
For more information on cervical screening, please visit the NHS website.
To try and prevent the virus spreading, we need to temporarily change our working practice and limit the number of people visiting the surgery.
We will be implementing the following from Monday March 16th 2020
- Stopping online booking of appointments
- All appointments will initially be by telephone, if the doctor or nurse feels you need to be seen in person, you will be given an appointment
- Appointments will be spread throughout the day so as few people as possible are in the waiting room at any time
Please remember, if you have a recent onset of cough or high temperature above 37.8ºC (100ºF) you SHOULD NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY
You should self isolate for 7 days - see link for advice on this. If you begin to feel worse, then contact NHS 111 for further advice.
WE CAN NEITHER TEST YOU OR TREAT YOU FOR CORONAVIRUS
There is likely to be a huge volume of work to deal with daily from Monday, so please be patient - this is a big change for all of us. We are depending on you to do your part.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Access & Facilities
We have level access to the surgery with two disabled parking spaces.
The surgery has been extended recently and included doorways to accommodate wheelchair users, disabled access toilet/hand washing facilities. All consulting rooms can accommodate wheelchairs.
If you have any difficulty with accessing our building, please telephone reception before you arrive or press the bell on the front door and we can assist you getting into the building.
If you have any difficulties with hearing or vision, please let us know and we can accommodate that when you are using the practice's services. A hearing loop is available and large font practice leaflets are available on request.
