Update for Patients (July 2020): Covid 19 response second phase

As we move into the second phase of our Covid response, we wanted to share with you how we are “open for business”. The new “normal” will continue to look different from how we provided a service to our patients prior to March 2020.

 

To reduce footfall in the building, we will continue with total triage (as advised by NHS England) by using eConsult for any access requests. If you do not have access to technology to do this yourself our reception team will assist you. Please note telephone calls are taking longer to process at times due to this. When we first started to use eConsult, we were dealing with approximately 200 per week, this rose to 370 per week during March to May. This has now risen to over 500 per week. The Practice team are reviewing how we can manage this increased demand.

 

The majority of consultations are taking place by telephone/video call. We will be open to see patients for face to face consultations when clinically appropriate by invite only; using entrances at front and rear of the building. Please understand that we are protecting both patients and our clinicians by keeping face to face consultations to a minimum. We will not be opening the front doors as normal for people to “pop in” whilst social distancing guidelines continue to be in place.

 

We will continue to promote on-line ordering of prescriptions/picking up/delivery from pharmacy, this has worked very well over the last few months. Please email our team warccg.prescriptionsteam@nhs.net

 

The Practice has adopted a policy of requesting face coverings for all patients/visitors. All team members will continue to wear appropriate PPE.

General Data Protection Regulation Changes

General Practice Transparency Notice for GPES Data for Pandemic Planning and Research (COVID-19)

Prescription Collection

On 25th May 2018 General Data Protection Regulations are changed and Stockton Heath Medical Centre will be breaching these regulations if we give your prescription to someone without your permission.

If you want to delegate responsibility to another person (including a pharmacy) to pick up your prescription speak to your local pharmacy to arrange this service.

Important points of note:

  1. You can withdraw permission at any time by informing the Surgery and the Pharmacy.
  2. Some pharmacies no longer pick up paper prescriptions for patients.
  3. Your prescription can be automatically sent to a pharmacy so no one has to pick it up from the GP surgery (dependent on medications).

Collecting letters/Fit to Work notes/copies of blood forms/results:

We will ask you to provide proof of your ID when you collect the paperwork and we log this on your medical record. If you are asking someone else to collect on your behalf, you will need to let us know the name of the person and ask them to bring proof of ID with them.
