APPOINTMENTS DURING COVID-19
In line with National Guidance, all Worcester City practices are working together to provide the best care for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. This means that there will need to be one site where patients who may be at higher risk of COVID-19 should be assessed, this will be known as the 'Red Site'. This will generally be for patients who have fever or respiratory symptoms (cough & shortness of breath). Patients who need to be seen in person but do not have symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 will be seen at a different site known as the 'Amber Site'. All appointments for these sites will be made following telephone or video assessment by a GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner. For Elbury Moor the 'Red Site' will be at Farrier House Surgery. Patients will be seen there by a GP from their own practice. Henwick Halt Medical Centre, Turnpike House Medical Centre and Barbourne Health Centre will all be Amber Sites. Please be reassured that the staff working in both sites will have appropriate PPE. There are set safety protocols and strict cleaning schedules in place to protect patients and staff.
If you have any new symptoms or you are concerned about your physical or mental health, please continue to contact the Practice .
BEWARE OF SCAMMERS
There is heightened coverage around the recent Coronavirus outbreak around the world, which is now severely impacting on the UK and the NHS.
Unfortunately fraudsters are targeting these circumstances to take advantage of public fear and concern.
We have been made aware that our patients are receiving phone calls., texts and letters from fraudsters. They will try and obtain your personal details and in particular your NHS number.
Scammers are sophisticated, opportunistic and will try many ways to get the information they want. They often target the vulnerable.
If you are suspicious, do not give any details over the phone, hang up and then ring your GP Practice to confirm.
