UPCOMING CHANGES

During the pandemic we needed to change the way we worked and how patients could safely access our services.

Although covid is still amongst us and we must continue to take necessary precautions, we now are looking at how we can improve patient access as well as manage the demand for consultations.

Over the next few weeks and months, we will be looking at ways to improve access and you may notice differences when phoning/ visiting us.

Our receptionists may ask you more questions than usual – this is to help us determine who the most appropriate clinician for your consultation and the urgency of the matter is. A clinician will decide on this depending on the details gathered.

Please remember you can always contact us via our online service, Klinik, which can be accessed via our website: www.fileysurgery.co.uk. You can use this for advice, medication queries, sick notes & much more.

We thank you for your continued patience & cooperation.


COVID RULES FOR ALL NHS PREMISES

Please note that we don’t yet know whether the rules for the NHS will change.

So, until this is confirmed, please continue to:

  • Wear your mask in the surgery.
  • Keep distance when in the surgery.
  • Arrive no longer than five minutes before your appointment time.
  • Avoid attending for routine care when you have covid.
  • Tell us if you have covid symptoms or are covid positive when you have an appointment.

That way we can keep all patients safe - including those who cannot be vaccinated or whose immune systems are compromised/weak.


RESTRICTIONS UPDATE

WHAT RESTRICTIONS ARE THERE AT THE FILEY SURGERY?

 

For the time being there will be no changes here at the practice. Patients coming to the surgery will still need to wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser and socially distance. Our staff will continue to wear appropriate PPE.

 

We have made this decision as often patients coming to the surgery are sick, vulnerable and maybe unvaccinated due to medical reasons, so we feel that these precautions will help to protect everyone.  We also need to minimise the number of our staff catching COVID so we can keep a functioning service, so for this reason alone these measures are vital.

 

For appointments and queries please contact the practice by phone, or online (accessed by our website), to minimise the number of people attending the surgery, and please do not attend the practice if you have any COVID symptoms.

 

Our consultations will be either face to face or telephone consultations. It is worth noting that we are consulting with higher numbers of patients than we ever did before the pandemic, whilst also playing a big part in the vaccination programme too. Our doors are open but just in a different way.

 

We hope you will understand why we need to continue with these measures and keep the surgery as safe for everyone as we can.  We have all come so far in trying to minimise the impact of COVID, let’s continue to stay safe together.

 

Thank you.


FACE COVERINGS TO BE WORN WHEN ENTERING THE FILEY SURGERY

To further protect our staff and patients the surgery would request that anyone entering the building has a face covering in place. 

This can be a mask or a simple covering such as a scarf.

Thank you for your co-operation.


HOW TO ORDER A CORONAVIRUS TEST IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS

Go online to nhs.uk/coronavirus or download the NHS Test and Trace App

When you order a test, you will get information on the options available to you which might be to attending a mobile drive through testing centre, a walk through centre or having a test kit delivered to your home.
