Thank you. Your choice has been saved. You can change your preferences at any time.
I am sure that you have all heard from the government that the volunteer delivery of medications to our shielded patients ends on Saturday 1 August. You may also be aware from the news, of the Prime Minister’s concern about a second wave of Covid-19.
In order to minimise the spread of any local infections, Chillington Health Centre will continue to protect the surgery by allowing minimal footfall into the building. GPs will, as now, continue to see patient’s face to face when appropriate after telephone assessment. Our nursing team will also continue their clinics face to face.
With an expected increase in patients (or people collecting on their behalf) visiting the surgery to collect prescriptions, we are establishing a temporary dispensary window overlooking the Doctor’s Car Parking space at the front of the building.
From Monday 3 August, please use the new Dispensary window. Please continue to maintain social distancing if there is a queue: ( 1m+ if wearing a mask , otherwise 2 m). Please queue alongside the wall and depart via the fence.
Covid-19 has placed a significant strain on the surgery and this has caused some disruption to our services. We are still adapting to the new normal and thank you for bearing with us while we establish our new processes.
On your behalf I would also like to say a big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers who have delivered medications over the past 4 months. You are all truly amazing and a credit to your communities.
