COVID-19 GUIDANCE IN LOCAL HEALTHCARE SETTINGS TO REMAIN UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE 

 

 

Following the end to mandatory social distancing and mask wearing in daily life on 19 July, please be advised that if you are visiting a healthcare setting such as GP surgery, community clinic or hospital, you will still be required to wear a facemask and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

 

We are still seeing rising cases of COVID-19 in our communities and in admission to our local hospitals so despite the easing of restrictions in our daily lives, we must continue to follow a rigorous process in health and care settings to keep our patients and our colleagues safe.

    

Despite any changes coming into force from Monday 19 July in the communitycurrent guidance remains in place in hospitals, GP and other primary care buildings and services in central Lancashire, and will not change at this time.  

  

Therefore, all health and social care staff, volunteers, patients and visitors will still be required to continue to follow the below: 

  • HANDS: Wash hands regularly with soap and water or hand gel if hand washing facilities are not available 
  • FACE: Wear a face covering in practice buildings  
  • SPACE: Stay at least 2m away from people wherever possible and ensure you follow the social distancing measures in place 


Thank you for helping us continue to keep our patients and staff safe during these continued challenging times.

THE LEYLAND COLLABORATIVE

 

We have been working hard to increase the numbers of appointments available for you. This has involved developing a partnership with other local practices, which we are pleased to tell you has now resulted in the formulation of the group named above. The Leyland Collaborative consists of the following practices Worden Medical Centre, Central Park Surgery, Sandy Lane Surgery, and The Village Surgeries -  Croston & Eccleston. The new service will provide access to GP and Nurse appointments at weekends and Bank Holidays ( except Christmas Day) from December 2017 and from January 2018, GP appointments weekday evenings. The service is available to all patients within this group on a proportionate basis however it is important to be aware that the appointment may not necessarily be at this practice. These are all additional appointments so it is not the case that patients of other practices will now utilise all our appointments.

Available appointments will be offered as normal through this surgery and you will be informed if the appointment is at another site.

Blood Test Results

If a clinician at the surgery has asked you to have blood tests, please remember it is the patient's responsibility to contact the surgery approximately 5 days after the bloods have been taken for the results. Reminder letters will no longer be sent out for repeat bloods due.

 

Text Reminders

 

We have commenced using a text and email reminder service at the surgery. This will be used in many positive ways such as:

  • Appointment confirmation and reminders. The patient can also cancel their appointment via text or email.
  • Campaigns such as flu, shingles etc.
  • Gathering data for eg: Friends and Family, smoking status.
  • Sending out our Newsletter and patient questionnaires ( email )

For this service to be effective we need up to date mobile telephone numbers and email address. Please contact the surgery to update your contact details. You can use the Update Contact Form below.
