Noticeboard

The need to protect patients and staff from Covid-19 (coronavirus) is as important as ever and is a top priority for the practice; particularly as we head into winter.

In addition, the amount of patient requests coming in remains significant. We continue to encourage patients to seek help for their ailments but also ask that patients consider whether the practice is the most appropriate point of care. Before you submit a request do remember that you can order your repeat prescriptions directly through patient access, can get NHS support and advice online to undertake self-help, and for minor illnesses and ailments your local pharmacy team are trained clinical professionals who can provide free advice on the best treatment. If you are ever unsure about where to obtain help, visit 111 online for guidance.   

When accessing the surgery, please remember that we are doing things differently to keep you safe, while making sure that you have access to the care you need. If you have a booked face to face appointment at the practice please ring on the door bell so we can meet and greet you (the door will be closed). This is so we can ensure precautions are taken for you and the healthcare teams safety; and so you can socially distance within the waiting room.

To submit a request or query, we encourage our patients to use our online consultation platform by  clicking on the askmyGP link below. However, if patients would rather call the practice please be prepared to tell our healthcare team about your symptoms or concerns. We will respond in a number of ways, either by online message, by phone, or by video call and we may ask you to come into the surgery. We can assure you that we are dealing with all requests in a safe and timely manner. If you are requested to attend the surgery, please do follow the instructions provided by our staff before arriving.

With great appreciation from the staff at Hamdon Medical Centre

Research

Some of the information that you give ubooks_and_laptops about your health is recorded on the computer.  The main reason for this is so that we have a complete record that helps us treat you to the best of our ability.  However, a small amount of what we record is used for research into the sorts of diseases we have in our area.  Information used in this way has all personal details removed.  This means that it is not possible to identify any person in our practice.

If you wish to have your health information withheld from the computer record, please let your doctor know.
