CORONAVIRUS: Service Update
GP Face to Face Appointments:
Albion Street have converted all GP face to face appointments to telephone appointments. Please DO NOT come into the practice unless you have been invited in by staff.
6 Week Baby-Checks:
We will carry these out at 8 weeks instead of at 6 weeks so that your baby can have their immunisation on the same day (or if your baby is unwell that day, shortly after). You will be offered an appointment with a GP and nurse on the same day. We are doing this to avoid repeated visits to the practice for your baby and you during the corona virus outbreak.
Nurse Appointments - Urgent only from now on:
Our nurses will ONLY see patients have urgent needs e.g. complex dressings, blood tests for monitoring, baby immunisations and other essential injections. All long term condition reviews will be carried out over the telephone.
Healthcare assistant appointments (HCA):
Urgent only from now on for dressings, blood tests for monitoring, and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (at request of GP only at present)
