Welcome to St Georges Crescent Surgery
Please do not attend your GP Practice if you have a concern about whether you have been affected by coronavirus (either through travel or if you have been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus).
Your local GP practices are working together to provide a service for all their patients whilst trying to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID -19), helping to keep everyone, including our staff in Primary Care, as safe as possible.
All GP surgeries have changed the way they are working.
The message is to ‘phone first’ and advice will be given to you depending on your symptoms and ongoing care needs.
Face-to-face appointments with a healthcare professional will only be confirmed after an initial telephone or video consultation (click here for more information on how to use video consultations). Doors are now closed and will be open to let those people in who have an appointment or to collect your prescription. Use the letterbox to the left side of the front door to drop off any prescription requests.
Depending on your symptoms and care needs. If the healthcare professional feels your illness might be related to Coronavirus (COVID-19) you will be asked to attend a Local Assessment Centre. These centres have been developed by your local GP practices and community teams.
The Local Assessment Centres do not test patients for COVID-19, and are only for patients who are offered an appointment. They do not offer a drop-in service.
If you are offered an appointment at a Local Assessment Centre you will be given clear instructions on what to do ensuring the safety of you, your carer and the staff at the Centre.
You will be asked to attend the Local Assessment Centre by car and you should remain in your car with your mobile phone on and wait for further instructions.
If you don’t have a mobile or means of transport please identify this when the clinician makes your first telephone assessment with you at home.
The team at the Centre are made up of healthcare professionals already working in your local community and GP practices and you may be seen by a GP or nurse from another practice.
The development of the Local Assessment Centres follows national guidance, with similar changes already in place elsewhere in Wales.
Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support as we continue to ensure our patients receive the treatment and care they need.
