Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

With effect from 15/6/2020, all patients attending AMG for a face to face appointment MUST arrive wearing a face covering or mask please

Due to national public advice on social isolation we are changing our appointments to minimise risk of contact in the community.

We need to limit the spread of the Corona virus in our community to protect our vulnerable. We have to cancel all booked face to face appointments, effective immediately. We WILL run urgent and necessary appointments only. If you have an appointment you will be contacted by our team. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have been instructed to. We will be running a telephone service but please be patient as we are experiencing very high demand at the moment. Many Thanks.


Letters for High Risk Patients group 4 - update

Dear Patient,

As you may be aware the government have sent over a million letters to patients advising them that they are in an ‘at risk’ group and should isolate for the next 12 weeks.

These letters were produced using hospital data and not data from GP Practices. As a result the government announced that the GP practices will be writing to additional patients by the beginning of this week.

As you may have noticed, there has been a delay in this process centrally by NHS England / NHS Digital. We have been informed that the additional letters are being produced this week.

We understand and share your frustrations regarding the delay in this process and politely ask you to respect our staff whilst we wait for this situation to be resolved. To clarify, it is completely out of our control and we are dependent on NHS England / NHS Digital informing us (and other GP practices across the country) once these additional patients have been identified.

Once the additional patents have been identified and the letters sent, we will let you know. Thank you again for your patience.

Outside normal surgery hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) emergency cover for the practice is provided by Primary Care (PC24) Out of Hours service. PC24 is an urgent care centre based next to the Kings Mill Hospital Emergency Department (ED) that provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a nurse led service (Monday – Friday) and is supported by General Practitioners (GP’s) in the out of hours period (i.e. anytime that your normal GP practice is closed).
 
This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and will be expected if required to attend PC24 if necessary. Advice may also be given if attending for a face to face appointment is not deemed to be required.
 
During out of hours you should telephone the practice and instructions will be provided on how to contact NEMS.
 
For other general medical advice you can always contact the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation.
