From 24th July the new government guidelines mean it becomes compulsary to wear face coverings in shops and supermarkets as there is growing evidence that this can prevent Covid -19 from spreading.
We are asking patients to please consider wearing their own face covering where possible, when visiting the practice. Please continue to stay 2 metres apart and use hand sanitiser provided on arrival.

It has come to our attention that since the government have set new guidelines that face coverings are to be made mandatory in shops and supermarkets from 24th July 2020, patients are worried how they can prove exemption.
There are a small cohort of patients that fall within the exempt category, please follow the link below for further guidance:
Unfortunately the practice is unable to provide patients with any kind of exemption form/letter, however if you visit the hidden disabilities store on the link below you will find further information on exemption cards.

We have noticed an increase of patients worrying about COVID, unemployment, being furloughed, life after COVID etc and we thought some of you would benefit from some help and guidance. If you feel this could relate to you please visit the following link for further help and guidance.
At the moment there is no current guidance for employees returning to work after being furloughed, however there is information on the government website that may help.
We hope this helps
**EASTER OPENING TIMES UPDATE**
We will be open as normal on Good Friday ( Friday 10th April) and bank holiday Monday ( Monday 13th April) 8am-6pm ( until 6.30pm on the telephone)
Patients and the public must continue to seek medical help for serious conditions during this COVID-19 pandemic
* You should continue with ongoing treatments for all your medical conditions and attend any hospital or GP appointments that are requested. Routine care is being carried out, where possible, through ‘phone calls or video links so you will not be asked to attend unless absolutely necessary
* Hospitals are safer than you own home if you are in need of emergency care. The reorganisation of services includes protecting patients who are being seen for conditions other than COVID-19.
At this time of national emergency caused by COVID-19, we want you to know where we are as a practice.
Our priority is to keep you, our patients and all our staff safe to be able to continue to deliver care to you. Many of you will already have received a text, letter or email from NHS England with advice about self-isolating for 12 weeks due to your ongoing health problems.
As a practice we have just completed a search through all our patients who may not have been contacted, and who would also be in the group to self-isolate, will be in touch in the next few days.
If anyone has not heard from us by the 29th March, and feels they should have, please contact us on 01482 853270.
If we do not have your email or your mobile number, again please contact the surgery to update your records. We will still be continuing with face to face consultations, but as you can appreciate, we will also use other forms of technology where appropriate, and we will be introducing video consultations in the next few days.
Thank you for your support and patience through this difficult time and love and take care of each other and observe the Governments advice about restricted travel and social distancing.
Thank you - Field View Surgery
