Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 Priory Surgery has taken the difficult decision to triage by telephone all routine appointments to see a nurse or doctor, to decide the most appropriate course of action.

Safety of our patients and staff is of paramount importance.

 

 Where possible please telephone the surgery for routine/on-going problems between the hours of

8.00am - 12.00pm

 In the event of a medically urgent problem between the hours of 8.00am and 6.30pm, please call the surgery to be booked into an urgent telephone slot

 

 IF YOU DEVELOP SYMPTOMS, SUCH AS NEW CONTINUOUS COUGH, FEVER OR LOSS OF SMELL OR TASTE, YOU MUST SELF-ISOLATE FOR AT LEAST 10 DAYS.

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY.

IF YOUR SYMPTOMS WORSEN, PLEASE CALL 111 FOR FURTHER ADVICE.

Thank you for your co-operation

Referrals During the Covid-19 Pandemic

There have been reports in the media stating that NHS routine referrals are back up and running.

At a local level, these are being restarted at different times and it is still the case that some routine referral pathways remain closed.

We are monitoring the situation regularly. If a GP provides you with a routine NHS referral, our referrals team will only send this when it is possible and will contact you once this has been processed – this may be via text message.

May we therefore politely ask that you do not call the surgery to chase your referral. The situation is changing on an almost daily basis so please continue to bear with us through all this.

The above does not apply to suspected cancer or urgent referrals.

COVID VACCINATIONS

GROUP 6 COVID VACCINATION UPDATE

 

We wanted to highlight information sent out by our CCG (BNSSG) concerning abuse towards staff in Bristol practices.

 

The information given to Primary Care is constantly changing at short notice and we are working extremely hard to manage this. We hope the below statement gives some clarity:-

 

We understand that practices are receiving lots of calls from patients in cohort 6 with regards vaccination timings. Unfortunately some of these patients are being demanding and abusive towards staff.

 

Priority Group 6 is large and covers a wide age range and many health conditions. In BNSSG we are contacting people in Group 6 over the next few weeks in order of those most at risk of a more severe outcome from contracting Covid. If you believe you are in Cohort 6, please DO NOT contact the NHS - we will contact you.

 

We appreciate that it can be confusing for individuals to know the group they are in. At this stage we are following a series of nationally defined criteria and that allows us to contact the people we want to come forward for vaccination.

 

We are working tirelessly to vaccinate our patients as quickly as possible using every potential slot and every dose of vaccine as soon as we receive it.

 

Please be patient and kind to our staff, we will be in touch when it is your turn.

 

Thank you

 

All the staff at Priory Surgery
