Noticeboard

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
  • Read the advice about staying at home.
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
  • Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
  • Use the 111 coronavirus service

IMPORTANT - IF YOU ARE SYMPTOMATIC AND ARE ASKED TO ATTEND THE PRACTICE FOR AN APPOINTMENT  - YOU WILL BE ASKED TO USE A SEPARATE ENTRANCE - B at the side of the building - please ask if you are unsure.

Extended Access to Appointments     PLEASE NOTE - THERE IS NO EXTENDED ACCESS CURRENTLY DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS - WE WILL INFORM YOU WHEN THIS IS AVAILABLE AGAIN ACROSS ALL PRACTICES

The IMP Federation (of which Abbey Medical Practice is a part of) is pleased to be able to offer patients access to routine GP appointments at evenings and weekends.     The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group.

The appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods.

Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments.  NOTE THIS SERVICE IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DURING THE COVID19 PANDEMIC 

For urgent matters at evenings and weekends, patients will continue to access the GP Out of Hours Services at Lincoln County Hospital via NHS 111 or the Minor Injuries Unit at John Coupland Hospital.

 

PLEASE NOTE   -  These appointments are for Routine - Non Emergency issues.

Prescription Line

Due to the increased number of prescriptions we have a 24 hour repeat prescription line.   

This can be accessed the same way as before - dial the normal practice number and Option 2 for prescriptions.   You will automatically be transferred to the answer machine.   Please leave a message stating your NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, address and telephone number followed by the NAME OF THE MEDICATION you require.    Please speak clearly and spell anything unusual.   If we cannot hear the message - we cannot generate your prescription !

GREAT NEWS -     We have received our CQC report after the Inspection on 31st May and have been graded as GOOD

Click for help online with Ask My GP

Please help us to help you - the easiest and fastest way to ask for any kind of help is with AskMyGP.

  • It's available 24/7 - we respond between 8am and 4:00pm Monday to Friday (with the exception of when we are closed - please check our opening times tab for details)

  • We aim to respond the same day - please expect a call from a withheld number if you have requested we contact you by telephone.  Please be aware that we will try to call you back twice and if you do not answer the second call, we will close the request and you will need to re-submit.

  • If you have requested a response by email, please look out for this within your AskMyGP account, NOT within your email inbox.

  • All our registered patients are welcome, and as a parent or carer you can use AskMyGP on behalf of a patient

  • If you would like to read more information click here to read the Ask My GP leaflet or watch the video below.

  • To read more about online consultations click here to read the leaflet 'What is an Online Consultation?'

Due to the current coronavirus situation, we are now asking patients to use AskMyGP when they wish to book any appointments at the practice including nurse appointments so that we can screen the request fully. To ask for a nurse appointment please just raise the request in exactly the same way as you would for a Doctor or Nurse Practitioner appointment.

During Covid-19 we ask that patients do not come to the surgery unless invited to do so by the practice.     We are trying to protect vulnerable patients, and practice staff.     We have also reduced some of our services so that we can focus on managing patients with Covid-19.    We are still able to assess and advise patients remotely about any concerns that they have which are not Covid-19 related.     You can contact the surgery to get advice and assessment preferably online via AskMyGP or by telephone.    If a clinician thinks that you need to be seen they can arrange for an appropriate appointment or perform a video consultation.


 If you are asked to attend the surgery – please wear a face covering/mask for both your protection and ours.
