Noticeboard

The NHS in Milton Keynes 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.


 


The risk to the general public is moderate. If you have arrived back to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau within 14 days, follow the specific advice for returning travellers.


 


Anyone who has travelled to China or places listed above in the last 14 days and develops symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, should immediately:


 



  • Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu

  • Call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country


 


Information for the public is available at gov.uk/coronavirus.


 


Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.


 


The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited Wuhan, Hubei province, China are currently in isolation.


 


Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the GP practice and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.


 


Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:


 



  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

Repeat Prescriptions

Please be aware it is the patient’s responsibility to ensure repeat prescriptions are ordered on time.  You can order your prescription up to 10 days before it is due.

 

Our doctors are very busy and cannot be interrupted to produce prescriptions urgently because the request has come in late.

 

When we receive a repeat prescription request, we shall have your prescription ready within 48 hours if collecting from the surgery or 72 hours if your prescription is to be sent to the pharmacist.

All electronic prescriptions will be with the pharmacist within 48 hours.

 

In most cases, if you are not able to take your regular medication for 48 hours this will not impact on your health, but you can avoid this interruption in you medication by ordering on time.

 

It is our policy not to order medication over the phone; we only take requests over the phone for prescriptions from housebound patients and we request these phone calls come in after 9.30am.


Urine Samples

All urine samples MUST be received at Reception by 12 midday - Monday to Friday

Thank you


Protected Learning Time

The practice will be closed on Wednesday 19th February 2020 from 1.30pm to 6.30pm for protected learning time.


Test Results

For test results please call after 10.30am

Test results can now be viewed on-line, if you do not have an on-line password please come into the medical centre with proof of identity such as a passport or driving licence and we shall set up a password for you.

 

You will then be able to book and cancel doctor’s appointments, order medication, contact the medical centre via a confidential messaging system, and view your detailed coded medical record including your test results.


Training Practice 

We are a training practice and have a GP registrar working with us undertaking their advanced training in General Practice. Registrars are qualified doctors who have had considerable hospital experience and generally stay with us for up to 12 months.

We also have medical students, junior doctors and nurses undergoing training with us from time to time.


Chaperone

Sometimes patients ask if we can provide a chaperone to accompany them if they are having an examination with their GP.  

This notice is to advise patients we can provide that service.

 

If you would like a chaperone, please ask your GP.


Online Services

You can now book appointments at either Newport Pagnell Medical Centre or NPMC at Willen - please ensure you check the 'Location' of the GP clinic when booking appointments.
